Former Aquilaw associate partner Alok Shankar has joined Advaita Legal as managing associate as the firm promoted principal Shailendra Singh to partner. Both are a part of Advaita’s Infrastructure and projects practice.

A 2007 alumnus of NLIU, Shankar joined Aquilaw in August 2017 when it was a two-year-old start up. Before Aquilaw hehad stints with JSA, Luthra & Luthra and the chambers of senior advocate Gopal Jain.

Singh is a 2002 graduate of CLC Delhi. In April 2016 he was promoted to principal which is a rung at Advaita with compensation similar to a salaried partner at other firms and being an independent profit centre, as the firm had told us then.

Advaita founding partner and national head Sujit Ghosh commented in the firm’s press release: “Shailendra has grown from the ranks within the Firm and his elevation as Partner to head the Infrastructure and Projects practice of the Firm is well-deserved. The Infrastructure and Projects team has grown into a full service team under Shailendra’s tutelage with various teams under him offering services ranging from PPP advisory to project contract documentation (including project financing) to regulatory work across sectors (airports, electricity, oil & gas, ports, mining, railways, smart cities etc.).”
