Young, star corporate partner Shishir Vayttaden quits Luthra to join Amarchand

Vayttaden: Homegrown talent
Vayttaden: Homegrown talent

Homegrown Luthra & Luthra Mumbai partner Shishir Jose Vayttaden has resigned from the firm.

The corporate, M&A and private equity (PE) lawyer had joined Luthra from campus after graduating from NLSIU Bangalore in 2005 and received the firm’s managing partners solitaire award in April 2010 after publishing a book on the SEBI Takeover Regulations in January that year, when he was still a senior associate.

He made partner at Luthra Mumbai in 2012. The last deal led by Vayttaden that was reported by Legally India, was the $155m Medanta-Carlyle PE in December.

Vayttaden confirmed that he was moving on “after a memorable nine years” but declined to confirm where he would be joining.

“I am parting on very nice terms – the management’s been thoroughly professional about everything really,” he added.

Legally India understands, according to several sources, that Vayttaden will be joining Amarchand Mangaldas in Mumbai.

Update: Amarchand Mumbai managing partner Cyril Shroff confirmed Vayttaden’s joining and said he was the addition to the corporate practice.

Luthra managing partner Rajiv Luthra said: “The firm wishes Shishir good luck for all his future endeavours, a happy life ahead and the best of everything to be.”

The firm has faced a string of partner departures in the last 12 months, including the firm’s Delhi corporate partner Anil Rai, Delhi capital markets partner Madhurima Mukherjee, Delhi tax partner SR Patnaik, Delhi corporate partners Nivedita Tiwari and Dr Shweta Hingorani and international trade partner Moushami Joshi and Delhi litigation partner Ajit Warrier.
