Phoenix Legal counsel Mukul Baveja has joined Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas as a salaried partner, according to his Linked-in profile as first reported by Bar & Bench.

Shardul Amarchand Mumbai managing partner said that he welcomed Baveja on board and that he would add to the firm’s “already strong team”.

Baveja was a counsel at Phoenix Legal, leading the contentious and non-contentious IP practice of the firm, according to his Linked-in profile.

He did not respond to a message seeking comment at the time of publication.

Phoenix Mumbai co-founding partner Sawant Singh commented: “The IP team will continue to advise clients with oversight from the partners who have the wherewithal to service IP work.

“I must add that Mukul will be missed. Great guy.”

What would become Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas’ Gurgaon office had lost its IP partner Ranjan Negi last year, with Negi joining Cyril Amarchand in May 2015 as a partner with principal associate Aarti Joshi, who was also boosted to partner level.

Shardul Amarchand’s IP practice is headed up by equity partner Dev Robinson.
