The latest round-up of Indian associate movers and shakers.

Ince & Co

Mulla & Mulla senior associate Kunal Kapoor (pictured) has joined Ince & Co in Singapore as a senior associate last month. He will bolster its India shipping practice as part of the firm’s business and finance group.

The 2004 GLC Mumbai graduate and English qualified solicitor told Legally India that he joined Ince for better growth prospects and because the international perspective was vital in shipping law.

Ince had given him an opportunity to develop the India practice and regularly travel to India for business development, he said.

Economic Laws Practice (ELP)

Economic Laws Practice (ELP) has hired Abhay Pitale in Pune and Ashish Bhatnagar in Delhi as senior associates working in the tax team, according to an email from the firm.

Pitale was formerly at Barclays Technology in Pune, before which he specialised in direct tax at KPMG Pune for three years. He is a qualified chartered accountant and has worked on expatriate taxation advisory and compliance services work.

Bhatnagar was at PwC Delhi where he worked as a manager in the transfer pricing group, and was in the global transfer pricing services team at KPMG Delhi and Mumbai. He is chartered accountant and an MBA grad and has particular experience in direct taxes and transfer pricing.

This was the second in our new series of associate and lawyer moves where lawyers can keep up with friends moving to pastures new.

If you or a friend have recently joined a new workplace or are about to join, please email us a one-liner at and we will publish the move in our next column with a short bio.
