Seth Dua continues disputes expansion with senior associate

Seth Dua & Associates has hired a senior associate from arbitration specialists Kachwaha & Partners, continuing to grow its contentious practice.

Vasanth Rajasekaran joined the litigation team of Delhi firm Seth Dua, having earlier worked in Kachwaha's arbitration, corporate compliance and infrastructure projects department.

At Seth Dua his job will include advising infrastructure firms and multinational corporations in Indian dispute resolution and procurement laws.

Seth Dua's disputes practice is headed by senior partner Atul Dua and partner Neeraj Chaudhry.

Commenting on the litigation practice Dua said: "We have made a foray into active litigation in order to fulfill the needs of our clients but otherwise nearly 40 percent of the work done comes from corporate commercial practice."

Dua claimed that the firm "never felt the brunt of recession" as clients kept coming in and there was a greater need for expansion. "Therefore, we have been hiring throughout and the induction of Rajasekaran will bring in valuable experience from Kachwaha & Partners, which is purely an arbitration firm."

Kachwaha confirmed Rajasekaran's departure but was unavailable for comment.

Litigation co-head Chaudhry joined Seth Dua as a partner one year ago from Jaipur-based Paras Kuhad & Associates. He said: "Our litigation team is very porous - it consists of four to five lawyers but we requisitioned more advocates from corporate teams to satisfy any specific need as we do corporate commercial litigation across borders."

Chaudhry added that the firm was currently working on litigation in respect of distressed assets, restructuring of debts and banking recoveries, having recently represented UPaid Systems in a class action suit filed against Satyam.

Seth Dua has two equity partners, four partners and 31 associates.
