New HSA partners

HSA Advocates has promoted five associate partners to partner, according to its press release, while lifting two of its fee-earners to associate partner, (re)-growing the size of the firm to 32 partners and associate partners.

The new partners are:

  • Abhirup Dasgupta,
  • Akshay Malhotra,
  • Nitish Gupta,
  • Pratik Ghose and
  • Puja Priyadarshini.

New associate partners:

  • Aditya Kumar Singh, and
  • Molshree Bhatnagar.

Last year at this time, the firm had only promoted two associate partners to partner.

Since then, of course, the firm had lost 8 partners to DSK Legal; but HSA harebuilt its numbers by hiring eight lateral partners, getting back up to a headcount of 30 partners.

HSA founding partner Hemant Sahai commented in a press release: “I am quite pleased with the latest round of promotions.

“We have undergone significant expansion over the last year and these promotions are not just a recognition of the resident key talent and outstanding performers, but also a tribute to the all-round efforts of these colleagues in helping us realize our goals as a firm.

“This year’s promotions also carry a special meaning for me in as much as they epitomise our continuing focus on gender balance and commitment to creating a positive work environment and a level playing field in terms of opportunities, exposure and recognition for women lawyers in HSA.”

The firm has also promoted senior associate Sridevi Raghu to principal associate.

The following have been promoted to senior associate:

  • Ashwin Rakesh,
  • Ankit Shah,
  • Ishwar Ahuja,
  • Kanika Kumar,
  • Maaz Hashmi and
  • Mitra Arabandi.

HSA has offices New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Kolkata.
