ELP partners Sanjay Notani & Darshan Upadhyay made up into equity + 22 other lawyers promoted this year

Economic Laws Practice (ELP) elevated two Mumbai partners – Sanjay Notani in the firm’s international trade and customs practice and Darshan Upadhyay in the firm’s corporate commercial wing – into equity. The firm also made up eight new associate partners, five senior associates and nine associate managers.

Notani graduated from GLC Mumbai and worked with Lex Inde from 1994 to 1999, joined the independent litigation practice of ELP managing partner Rohan Shah until 2001, and then followed him to ELP when Shah co-founded it.

Upadhyay was snagged by ELP in December 2010, from ARA Law’s partnership. He had qualified as a company secretary in 2000 and worked with Thakke & Thakker until joining law at KC Law College Mumbai. After graduating from KC Mumbai he joined ARA Law.

ELP managing partner Rohan Shah commented in the firm’s press release: “Sanjay and Darshan are outstanding professionals who have built a strong reputation for excellence in their practices and client relationships. We are delighted to have these two stalwarts elevated to our equity partnership.”

The firm promoted the following senior associates to associate partner level: Aakanksha Joshi, Deep Roy, Harsh Shah, Jitendra Motwani and Ranjeet Mahtani in Mumbai and Karthik Sundaram (Chennai), Hardik Modh (Ahmedabad), Kumar Visalaksh (Delhi).

Associate managers who made senior associates: Archana Khosla and Santosh Maurya in Mumbai and Rajat Chabbra, Vishal Kulkarni and Vivek Bajaj in Pune.

Associates who made associate managers: Ambarish Sathianathan, Hardik Choksi, Okram Singha, Preeti Sukthanker, Rhia Marshall, Sweta Rajan, Tejus Golchha and Vidushi Maheshwari in Mumbai and Rahul Khurana in Delhi.

The firm, last month, hired Bharti Airtel general counsel Jyoti Pawar to head its telecommunications, media and technology practice (TMT) in Delhi.
