Khaitan & Co Bangalore poaches Poovayya partner Nalina Mayegowda, boosts lit to 4

Khaitan & Co’s Bangalore office has hired Nalina Mayegowda as a disputes partner from local Bangalore-headquartered Poovayya & Co, where she was also a partner.

Khaitan Mumbai partner Rabindra Jhunjhunwala said in a press release: “The work Nalina undertakes for the firm will not only help maintain the firm’s momentum, but build on its rapidly increasing reputation in the dispute resolution practice.”

We understand that she is the fourth partner in Khaitan’s Bangalore disputes practice.

Correction: The initially published version of the article erroneously stated that there would be three disputes partners.

Mayegowda is a 1995 University of Mysore graduate and specialises in litigation and arbitration in the real estate, employment, anti-bribery, intellectual property, commercial and public interest space. She has also occasionally acted on real estate transactions, according to her profile on Poovayya’s website:

She has also played a significant role in several important settlements involving large corporations. Nalina has, in the past, represented the largest UK-based international development companies in negotiation proceedings against the Government of India, which ended in a positive settlement. She also regularly advises one of the largest Indian media companies on its legal issues including matters before the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT), and advises educational institutions on issues concerning colleges, courses, employee issues, drafting of service agreements etc.

We have reached out to Poovayya managing partner Sajjan Poovayya for comment.
