Argus Partners Bangalore senior partner Siddharth Raja and husband-and-wife partner duo Aditya Narayan, Megha Narayan will be setting up their own law firm.

1997 NLSIU Bangalore grad Raja and the Narayans (both NLSIU 2006) had joined Argus in 2016, with Raja coming from Samvad.

Raja specialises in M&A and corporate work and had been involved in at least four reported deals in the 2018-19 financial year to 31 March 2019.

Real estate and disputes equity partner Aditya Narayan had worked at Narasappa Doraswamy & Raja previously, which Raja had co-founded and left a little while after it rebranded to Samvad Partners, before going going independent at the Karnataka high court for a year. Before that he had also worked at law firm King & Partridge.

Indirect tax partner Megha Malhotra Narayan had worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers for seven years, then worked at Aditya Narayan & Co as a senior consultant, before joining Argus.

Raja had been unreachable for comment for the past two weeks, and declined to comment further today.

Argus managing partner Krishnava Dutt said in a statement: “We wish them all the very best in their future endeavour.”

Argus has been aggressively expanding this year having hired litigator Maneesha Kongovi in Bangalore, GIP India legal counsel Vinod Joseph in Mumbai, and a dispute team of three partners, headed by Abeezar Faizullabhoy in Mumbai from HSA Advocates.

After their departure, Argus Partners has 16 partners remaining.
