Chaurasia, Mehrotra diversify TMT in Mumbai

TMT Law Practice, which had separated from Bharucha Singh Mundkur in March, has laterally hired two salaried partners and opened up in Mumbai.

Sapna R Chaurasia, a 2005 GLC Mumbai graduate, specialises in disputes, transactional support and compliance. She was senior manager legal at Sony Pictures Network India, before joining TMT on 1 October.

Previously she had also worked in-house at Tata Sky and Neo, as well as erstwhile litigation firm Federal & Rashmikant.

Aahna Mehrotra, a 2011 ILS Pune graduate, has had a previous association with TMT in its various avatars, but since 2013 had been running independent sports and consultancy practice AM Sports Law & Management Co, which was previously called Ludus Legal; she had been head of sports and gaming laws at TMT and its successor firm Arthe Law between 2016 and 2017.

He clients include domestic and international sports leagues, advising on player transfers, matters before the National Anti-Doping Tribunal, as well as advice on gambling laws, fantasy sports, intellectual property and merchandising contracts.

Founding partner Abhishek Malhotra said in a statement: “Their presence will demonstrate our commitment to the Mumbai legal market.

“I am sure their contribution will further the overall growth plan of the firm on diversification, while maintaining its niche.”

TMT had previously operated a small two fee-earner Mumbai office in 2016, before its its merger with advocate DP Singh had created Arthe Law.

TMT Law Practice has a total of 9 fee-earners now including 3 partners
