Khaitan & Co has hired NLSIU Bangalore associate professor and chair of the undergraduate council Rahul Singh as a partner for its competition practice.

However, Singh will also continue in his current role at NLSIU for the foreseeable future, we understand.

Khaitan has confirmed his joining, and he will be based in the law firm’s Mumbai and Bangalore office.

Singh has not responded to requests for comment.

In 2013 Singh had left Trilegal , where he was competition head, for a PhD at Oxford University, but had continued to work at the firm as a part-time counsel.

The 2003 NLSIU graduate with a 2004 LLM from Harvard Law School, having also worked at the Bar Council of India (BCI) from 2011 to 2012, and has been associated with NLSIU throughout his career.

One of Khaitan’s most senior competition partner Avaantika Kakkar had left for Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas in June 2018, leaving behind a gap in what has become a critical practice area for corporate law firms.
