Calcutta start-up Aquilaw leverages Delhi for litigation presence

Kolkata start-up Aquilaw has partnered with Supreme Court advocate on record (AOR) Vikas Mehta and advocate Vikram Mehta, for a presence in Delhi.

Aquilaw co-founding partner Sucharita Basu said that the Mehtas, who will share equity in Aquilaw Delhi, will help the firm in bringing mandates in Delhi courts and tribunals, through their own network. “This development was planned to reap the opportunities existing at the national level with respect to all practice areas. The litigation practice will get an additional leverage due to this set up of Aquilaw in Delhi,” she commented.

Both Delhi lawyers currently practice independently in Delhi from their office in Defence Colony and will lead Aquilaw’s Delhi practice from this office, said the firm.

Vikas and Vikram are both Delhi university LLB alumni (1996 and 2000, respectively), and specialise in the telecom space. Vikas worked in the chambers of Arun Jaitley and then represented the Telecom Disputes Regulatory Authority. Vikram practices commercial litigation before the Supreme Court, Delhi high court and Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT), having represented leading broadcasters before the TDSAT, according to a statement from Aquilaw.

Aquilaw will focus on the disputes, advisory, property and infrastructure practices in Delhi.

Aquilaw was started up in Kolkata in September by former Khaitan & Co associate partner Basu, and two other former Khaitan lawyers.
