Former India Law Services (ILS) associate and Symbiosis Law School graduate Aakash Phadnis project finance and intellectual property (IP) start-up in Pune has recently started a tie-up in Delhi and hopes to open in Mumbai soon.

El’ Serv has now opened an office in Delhi as a tie-up with advocate Rajat Bhardwaj in Defence Colony.

Phadnis, who is the sole founder of the one-year-old law firm called El’ Serv said he has plans to grow his legal practice in the western-Maharashtrian region, which according to him is an area that presents immense opportunity due to heavy industrialisation and technological progress.

“The initiative to set up the firm in Pune was taken considering the need of clientele from varied industries in and around Pune, approaching Mumbai based law firms for legal services. There a few firms which have offices in Pune and are predominantly used as back offices,” said Phadnis.

He added that there is a lot of scope for legal work in Pune where not too many law firms are present, claiming that El’ Serv was probably the only city firm specialising in project finance there.

Phadnis worked at ILS for two years in Mumbai and Pune after having been a consultant for IP firm Bhate & Ponkshe.

The firm’s Pune office located at Kothrud has four lawyers led by sole partner Phadnis.
