Jhunjhunwala focuses on retail, real estate and litigation and graduated from GJ Advani Law College Mumbai around 2002.

Gadodia specialises in technology, media and entertainment law and dispute resolution out of the firm’s Andheri office that was started less than a year ago. She graduated from Jitendra Chohan College of Law Mumbai in 2002.
