AK Singh & Co to AKS & Partners restructure from chamber to sole proprietor, to partnership with view on int’l mandates


AK Singh & Co, the Delhi-based litigation and arbitration proprietorship started by senior advocate AK Singh, has converted into a partnership and re-branded as AKS & Partners after 30 years of practice.

The firm had first started in 1988 as the sole proprietorship of Singh but was restructured in 2004. After Singh was designated as a senior in 2015, he gave up ownership in the firm.

AKS & Partners now has four partners including managing partner Sonal Kumar Singh, who is Singh’s son and joined the firm in 2006, and three others: Rajiv Singh Chauhan who worked with the firm since 1988, Arush Pathania who joined in 2009 and Gunjan Gupta who joined in 2010.

The partners are in the process of finalising the firm’s equity structure. The firm has 20 lawyers including the four partners and an office in Saket, Delhi.

Its practice is largely focused on international commercial arbitration and construction, domestic arbitration in sale of goods and other contractual and infrastructural disputes and litigation in banking and finance and company law matters.

Singh commented: “There is a specific reason to re-brand which is to actually keep up with the market trends and to align our brand or name with the vision of the firm. Also, with the firm’s growing international practice, it was felt necessary to re-brand and rename the firm.”
