Trilegal promotes disputes counsel (& NLIU grad) Shankh Sengupta into equity lockstep

Sengupta: Adding depth to disputes
Sengupta: Adding depth to disputes

Trilegal has promoted Delhi litigation counsel Shankh Sengupta to equity partnership, as the firm’s 24th equity partner.

NLIU Bhopal 2004 grad Sengupta joined Trilegal as counsel in 2011 after stints at J Sagar Associates (JSA) and S&R Associates.

Trilegal disputes practice head Sitesh Mukherjee commented in an email: “Shankh’s promotion will add to the depth of the disputes practice. We are committed to growing our disputes practice and we are very excited to have Shankh in the partnership.”

Sengupta and Mukherjee were not available for further comment at the time of going to press.

Update, 19:50: Sengupta commented: "

"We are definitely increasing capacity for corporate and commercial litigation. For the last three years we've been focussing on the litigation practice in Bombay which apart from being challenging has been extremely rewarding. Half my time is spent in Bombay and the other half in Delhi. That has been the case in the last three years and it will be so going forward. As a firm we definitely plan to increase our litigation practice and presence in Bombay."

Sengupta added that the firm is doing "extremely high value" commercial and investment disputes, and that the market is seeing an increase in both debt investments and equity investments, resulting in high value arbitrations.

In August Trilegal regulatory practice head and of counsel Sakya Singha Chaudhury left to join HSA as partner. Trilegal co-founding partner Anand Prasad had said that the firm’s regulatory practice was experiencing a churn owing to a shift to “more complex disputes”.

Trilegal converted to a full equity partnership with a 13-year lockstep last year, with one partner then choosing to remain outside the equity pool. The firm hired one partner and internally promoted another to equity in April.
