Narayan Iyer leaves TTA partnership, returns to London best friend Linklaters

Talwar Thakore & Associates (TTA) partner Narayan Iyer will re-join Linklaters in London in August, after a four year stint away from TTA’s magic-circle best friend friend.

Iyer, who began his career as a trainee at Linklaters, became a banking and finance partner at the firm’s Singapore office in 2007.

In 2009 he joined as a partner at TTA, which has a best friend relationship with the magic circle firm, with fellow Linklaters partner Kunal Thakore.

Iyer will be working in London alongside Linklaters partner and India practice head Sandeep Katwala and recently promoted corporate partner Savi Hebbur, to focus particularly on banking clients operating from London.

It is understood that Iyer will exit TTA’s lockstep partnership completely to re-enter into a Linklaters lockstep.

Katwala said in a release: “We need to respond appropriately to the evolving needs of our India-related clients. Narayan’s return will further strengthen our London-based India facing capability and complement the India expertise we have in Asia. Our best friends arrangement between Linklaters and TT&A will continue to thrive and Narayan will play a key part in strengthening this relationship.”

Narayan was not reachable for comment at the time of going to press.

TTA partner Feroz Dubash commented: “This is a positive development for both TT&A and Linklaters. We have, with Narayan, worked hard to successfully grow TT&A’s practice from strength to strength. Narayan’s move will broaden Linklaters’ relationship with TT&A as we carry on working together in providing clients with the highest level of service.”
