Linklaters partner Arun Balasubramanian to join Freshfields


Linklaters Singapore-based India partner Arun Balasubramanian is set to join Magic Circle rival Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Legally India has confirmed from two sources with knowledge of the move who declined to be named.

The news, which was first published by legal website Bar & Bench today, follows Talwar Thakore & Associates Mumbai-based banking partner Narayan Iyer returning to Linklaters head office in London after nearly four years in India.

Freshfields London-based India head Pratap Amin did not respond to an email seeking comment at the time of going to press.

A Linklaters spokesperson commented via email: “We thank Arun for his contribution to the firm and wish him all the best in his future career.”

Balasubramanian specialises in capital markets and corporate, having begun his career at Cravath Swaine & Moore in 1997 in New York, Hong Kong and London after graduating from Oxford in 1995.

He joined Linklaters London office in 2006 as a counsel and was promoted to partnership in 2007.
