K Law has hired as Delhi partners Abhishek Shinde and Atish Kumar Vatts, the two co-founding partners of Citius Law Partners, who did not join HSA Advocates in Bangalore with fellow co-founder Sharath Chandrasekhar in June.

K Law managing partner Naina Krishnamurthy has been unavailable for our comment since last week but according to Bar & Bench she said in a press release that “they bring to the firm – experience, relationships and specialized areas of practice, which will only enhance the firm’s practice areas” and that she was “confident that their contribution would add to the growth of the firm”.

Shinde and Vatts, like Chandrasekhar, are 2005 and 2004 NLSIU Bangalore graduates respectively who had set up Citius Law Partners in January 2016.

Shinde began his career at Trilegal, moved to Amarchand Mangaldas in 2007 for one year, followed by J Sagar Associates (JSA) between 2009 and 2014, and six months at Ranbaxy until January 2015, according to his Linked-in profile.

Vatts had started his career at Luthra & Luthra, moved to Daulet Singh & Associates a year later, joined Kochhar & Co in 2009, and joined AZB between 2011 and 2013 according to his Linked-in profile.

Late last month, K Law lost capital markets partner Gautham Srinivas to Khaitan & Co.

In May, the firm hired ILFS group general counsel (GC) Pradeep Ratnam and Trilegal Mumbai counsel Krishna Venkat as partners.
