Khaitan & Co's Paku Khan to move to USA to build firm's anti-trust, BD there [UPDATE-1]

Khaitan & Co competition law executive director Paku Khan will relocate to San Francisco in the US for family reasons, with an added business case meaning he will stay associated with the firm.

Khaitan HR head Amar Sinhji confirmed that Khan would not set up an office for Khaitan in the US but would continue working exclusively for the firm's competition practice.

"He will further the firm's interest in the US and help strengthen existing relationships and build new relationships," he added.

Khan was not reachable for comment at the time of publication.

Khan had joined Khaitan in 2012 from erstwhile Amarchand Mangaldas in Delhi, where he was hired in 2009 from Irish corporate law firm A&L Goodbody.

Khan is of Indian origin but was born in the US. He holds a 1991 law degree from Vanderbilt University Law School in the US, and is qualified to practice law in Tennessee, Washington DC, New York and as an Irish solicitor (though he is not qualified to practice law in India).

He had previously worked at the Irish Competition Authority in 2003, joining A&L Goodbody in 2005.

Khan could not be reached for comment at the time of publication.

Update: Khan commented: "I'm terrifically excited to make this move and it's a real testatement to Khaitan to being as open minded as possible and continuing as usual.

"Nothing really changes, my physical address is going to be in the Bay area, but I'm really doing the same thing."

Correction: An earlier published story mistakenly stated that Khan began his career in 2003, when in fact he began it in 1991.
