Talwar Thakore & Associates (TT&A) has promoted managing associate Rituparno Bhattacharya to its partnership, with effect from 1 April 2016.

Bhattacharya is a 2005 NUJS Kolkata graduate who began his career at erstwhile Amarchand Mangaldas, then joined Phoenix Legal in 2009 where he became a counsel, moved back to Amarchand Mumbai in 2011 for two years, and then joined TTA in 2013.

He specialises in banking and finance and has worked in the Indian debt markets for international and domestic institutions on all manner of debt related financing transactions, according to the firm’s press release.

He is one of a still-small number NUJS graduates who are making partnerships at top corporate law firms, though the college’s graduates had made up only 3 per cent of partners promoted between 2009 and 2013 at the then-six largest law firms according to Legally India research (compared to NLSIU Bangalore, from where 26 per cent of new partners came from, with NLIU Bhopal providing 5 per cent, and Nalsar Hyderabad 4 per cent).

TTA partner Sonali Mahapatra commented: “Rituparno’s promotion highlights our continued commitment to retain our finance practice’s market leading position. We will continue to enhance our banking and finance offering, and Rituparno is an important part of our plans. We look forward to working with him in ensuring the firm’s continued success”.

Bhattacharya is TTA’s fifth partner, with the firm now having 29 fee earners in Mumbai and Delhi including seven fee-earners under a collaboration with the competition law practice of Vinod Dhall in Delhi.

Partner Narayan Iyer had left the firm in early 2015 to re-join Linklaters as its India practice head.

The firm’s co-founders Suresh Talwar and Shobhan Thakur had retired in 2012.
