Samvad Partners has promoted counsel Aparna Ravi in Bangalore and Khyati Sanghvi in Mumbai to partner, increasing its partnership strength to 14.

Aparna Ravi had joined Samvad in 2016 and specialises in banking and finance, insolvency law, private equity, venture capital and general corporate matters. According to Samvad’s press release:

Prior to joining the Firm, Aparna worked at the New York and London offices of Weil Gotshal & Manges and as inhouse counsel in the investment banking department at Credit Suisse in London. Aparna was also a member of the Bankruptcy Law Reform Committee constituted by the Central Government and has written widely on insolvency law reform in India. Aparna holds a J.D. from the New York University School of Law (2003) and is qualified to practice law in India and New York.

Khyati Sanghvi, had rejoined Samvad in 2017 after having first worked at the firm in 2013, and specialises in projects, banking and finance and regulatory matters. According to Samvad:

Prior to joining Samvād: Partners, Khyati was associated with some major law firms including AZB & Partners, Mumbai, BTG Legal and India Law Services. Khyati has a Bachelor’s Degree in Law from the University of Mumbai (BLS. LL.B, 2010).

Senior partner Vineetha MG commented in a statement: “We are absolutely proud and excited to welcome Aparna and Khyati to the partnership. Both of them have been an integral part of the firm’s practice.”

Samvad Partners has a total of 14 partners, of whom 9 are women. The firm’s total fee-earner headcount, including partners, is 66, with offices in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad.

The latest promotions increase its female to male partners proportion from 58% to 64%, which is bound to be one of the highest amongst larger firms where traditionally partnerships have been dominated by men.
