ANM Global partner and Mumbai litigation head Ashish Mehta will leave the firm tomorrow to start up litigation and disputes boutique Ethos Legal Alliance in Mumbai on 1 June.

Ethos will function from the Arcadia Building at Nariman Point, with a team of seven associates.

“Our main focus is going to be ADR, economic offences, arbitration and advisory on prospective litigation,” he commented adding that Ethos will act on both domestic and foreign arbitration, with the steel sector currently making up a chunk of the big dispute amount arbitrations.

“We are representing 2-3 of the biggest steel corporates of India,” he said.

A Mumbai University 2007 alumnus, Mehta was practicing independently until 2016 when he merged his practice with ANM by joining the firm in Mumbai. As partner at ANM he grew the practice in civil and commercial litigation. He is a central government standing counsel (CGSC) since January 2016 and is also the special public prosecutor for income tax matters in Mumbai.

At ANM he was the partner in charge of the firm’s Nariman Point office and held 50% equity in the work that he billed for ANM. ANM’s Mumbai office at Bandra Kurla Complex is headed by the firm’s other Mumbai partner.

ANM managing partner Nidhish Mehrotra who will be replacing Mehta at Nariman Point for the interim, commented: “I would like to wish him all the best for his new venture.”
