Advaita-Seth Dua team joins Khaitan & Khaitan

Advaita Legal lawyers Subodh Sadana and Ray Sharat Prasad - who were formerly partner and associate partner respectively at Seth Dua & Associates - have joined Khaitan & Khaitan as partners.

Sadana is a 2002 Delhi University graduate, who had begun his career at Titus & Co, followed by Fox Mandal Little and Kochhar & Co.

In 2007, he moved to Seth Dua & Associates, were he was made partner in 2009, joining Advaita in 2017 when co-founding partner Atul Dua moved and dissolved the firm.

Sadana specialises in corporate transactional, M&A and general corporate advice.

Prasad, a Delhi University graduate from 2004, had worked at SK Agarwal & Co from 2004, before joining Seth Dua in 2006. He became associate partner in 2010. He specialises in corporate M&A, real estate, hospitality, commercial contracts and environmental laws.

They are understood to have joined the firm on 1 May.

Khaitan & Khaitan, founded in 2016 by Khaitan Sud & Partners breakaway partners Umesh Khaitan and Ashutosh Khaitan, has grown to 8 partners with their addition, and a total of 33 fee-earners, including partners.

Senior partner Ashutosh Khaitan commented that their experience of having “worked for a wide range of clients both on the domestic and international front” would help in the firm’s “vision and policy of broad-basing and adding further depth to our team”.

Last year, the firm had promoted Prantik Hazarika to its partnership.

Earlier this week we had reported that Advaita partner Atul Dua, who had co-founded Seth Dua, was also in the process of leaving Advaita.
