Algo Legal has added a partner in Mumbai by hiring former Veritas Legal senior associate, which he had left in November 2019, as a partner.

The 2006 Nalsar graduate specialises in corporate and M&A work and had been at Veritas for four years before nearly five years at AZB & Partners and three years at Wadia Ghandy.

According to his Algo firm profile, he has been involved in:

advising Matrix Partners on its investment in ANI Technologies (OLA Cabs); multiple large real estate investment transactions with deal value upward of $3bn and Cipla Group’s USD550m acquisition of two US-based companies, InvaGen Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Exelan Pharmaceuticals Inc.

In a statement, he Prasad said: “Algo’s work and mission of technological innovation in client servicing and solutions and internal management of processes combined with the energy and ambitions of its young team creates an exciting base for never ending demands of growth and efficiency in our legal industry.

“I believe this is a superb opportunity both professionally and for my own contribution to the firm and its team in its growth mission.”

Veritas Legal declined to comment when contacted.

Algo Legal has a total of 9 partners and 56 fee-earners across offices, with two partners based in Mumbai.
