How Khaitan father & son translated the Calcutta connection to Mumbai

Mint profiles Khaitan & Co Kolkata partner Pradeep Kumar (Pintu) Khaitan and his son Haigreve – one of the rainmakers in the firm’s Mumbai office:

From his 13th floor office in Mumbai’s One Indiabulls Centre, the practice that 42-year-old Khaitan leads for Khaitan and Co. is very different from, but also similar to, the one that his father Pradeep Kumar Khaitan is celebrated for. Pradeep Khaitan, based in Kolkata, is also a senior partner in the 101-year-old firm.

Many of India’s hoary business groups trace their origin back to Kolkata, and the city’s blue-blooded Marwaris are extremely particular about whom they deal with. If Mumbai’s business groups placed their trust through the 1990s and 2000s (and continue to do so, in some cases) in the famed 3Ks (Hemandra Kothari, Nimesh Kampani and Uday Kotak), then Kolkata’s business houses placed theirs in another K, “Pintu”, or Pradeep Kumar Khaitan.

Plus article delves into a few more of the Khaitan’s dealmaking connections and abilities. [Mint]
