Luthra & Luthra joins Indiabulls crowd, finalises year-long search for new Mumbai office

Exclusive: Luthra & Luthra will move into new interim offices in Lower Parel this weekend, having finalised office space of 12,000 square foot in the Indiabulls complex enabling a tripling of current headcounts.

Luthra & Luthra has taken an interim 10,000 square foot office in the Indiabulls Tower 2 for the next three months until the fitting out of the new-build Indiabulls Finance Centre (IFC) (pictured) next-door is finished.

The current headcount in Mumbai is between 50 and 55, which was stretching the upper limit of the firm’s previous office spread across two floors in Nariman Point’s Embassy Centre.

The new office on the 20th floor of IFC will have space for up to 150 staff, said Luthra & Luthra managing partner Rajiv Luthra. “This is our commitment to Mumbai to be in world class offices as well,” he commented.

The firm was searching for new space in Mumbai for nearly a year, having examined property in Nariman Point, Worli, the Lower Parel Peninsula complex where Amarchand is based and as far North as the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC).

It is understood that a variety of issues, including a lack of adequate parking facilities to Vastu compliance, had thrown spanners into the process of finalising an office.

Luthra acknowledged that while the new building did not have a cricket field, it was a self-contained tower that included a state-of-the-art fitness centre and restaurants.

The next-door Indiabulls Centre in Mumbai’s Lower Parel area already houses four other law firms, after DSK Legal moved there, following S&R Associates, Trilegal and Khaitan & Co, which paved the way in October 2009.
