J Sagar Associates (JSA) partner Asim Abbas is due to join L&L Partners in Delhi, according to two sources.

The 1990 Delhi University graduate specialises in technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) law.

This is his second innings at Luthra & Luthra, as it had been called in 2000 to 2001 when he had been a senior associate there.

He had also worked at JSA from 2001 to 2004 before returning there in 2019 from Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas (following Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas, Khaitan & Co, two years of running his own firm, Legal Spectrums, and in-house at Bharti Airtel).

We have reached out to L&L, JSA and Abbas for comment.

Update 18:12: Managing partner Rajiv Luthra commented:

On behalf of L&L Partners, I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome back Mr Asim Abbas to the family. He has joined us to meet the requirements of our clients with dedicated focus on Technology, Media & Telecom.

Asim has over 25 years of experience in the field and his deep domain knowledge and experience is an invaluable addition to the firm. Asim will also build areas of practice including those of the future, very close to my heart, issues regarding Artificial intelligence, Block chain, IOT etc.

We look forward to his proverbial home coming after almost 19 years away from the firm.
