SRGR partner Abhishek Awasthi joins Khaitan to ‘fly’ for Delhi real estate boost

Awasthi: Flies
Awasthi: Flies

SRGR Law Offices partner Abhishek Awasthi has joined Khaitan & Co as a consultant in Delhi to kick off its real estate practice there.

Awasthi said that he moved because there was good opportunity and growth with a good team, as the real estate market was moving up. “Khaitan is the right place to go,” he said.

The real estate practice is headed by Sudip Mullick in Mumbai and it would now look to “flex [its] muscles in the Delhi market”, Awasthi added.

Mumbai partner Haigreve Khaitan commented that the firm was keen to strengthen its Delhi real estate team, which currently included counsel PB Jain.

“I think all over we are seeing huge potential in real estate because of brick and mortar, plus real estate funds and real estate financing,” he said about the market.

Awasthi – a 2007 graduate - would join with the potential for partnership track but not as a partner, as was customary for younger lateral hires so they could “spend some time getting to know the firm” and growing into a partner role, explained Khaitan.

SRGR was started in 2009 by four partners of the Delhi office of FoxMandal Little, as it was then called.

“I wish him all the best,” commented SRGR co-founder Saroj Jha. “He was there with me from the very beginning [when starting the firm] and he is a very well-trained lawyer now and it’s time for him to fly.”
