Platinum expands by 25% with junior and lateral hires

Platinum Partners has grown its lawyer ranks by a quarter in the last three months, taking on three law school graduates and a lateral associate from White & Case in London.

Saionton Basu has joined Platinum's Delhi office as an associate from White & Case, where he was an associate in M&A and infrastructure for two-and-a-half years.

Basu had trained at Amarchand Mangaldas before moving to London.

Commenting on his return to India he said: "I always intended to focus on India as a sector [and] moving back to India was keeping my long term career goals in mind."

Platinum has also hired three recent graduates from Government Law College Mumbai and National Law Institute Universities in Bhopal and Jodhpur.

The firm's founding partner Karam Daulet-Singh said: "As far as law schools go, my experience has been that toppers - i.e. in the top five - from any of the top five to seven law schools make for really good new recruits."

Platinum currently has a total of sixteen lawyers across its offices, with two partners based in Delhi and one in Mumbai.

Basu has already started working at the firm and the new law school recruits are set to swell the fee-earner numbers by almost 20 per cent.
