LKS boosts corporate with ex-Themis partner Amritha Salian, Oyo A-GC Gaurav Dayal

Salian, Dayal join LKS partnership
Salian, Dayal join LKS partnership

Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan (LKS) has hired Amritha Salian, who had been an associate partner at Themis Associates in Bangalore until June 2019, and Gaurav Dayal, who had been Gurgaon-based associate general counsel at the Oyo hotels group.

Both have joined the firm as partners.

Salian, a 2006 University Law College Bangalore LLB graduate, had previously worked at Mundkur Law Partners, where she had been a partner, as well as Trilegal, Lexygen and IndusLaw.

She had left Themis in June 2019, shortly before much of Themis had been absorbed by the start-up firm Algo Legal.

Dayal had been working at the erstwhile Amarchand Mangaldas in Delhi since graduating from NLSIU Bangalore in 2008, only leaving in April 2019 as a principal associate from successor firm Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas to join Oyo.

With their joining, LKS has 12 partners and joint partners across its corporate and M&A practice group.

LKS principal partner and head of corporate and M&A, N Mathivanan, commented: “Both Gaurav and Amritha are exceptional additions to our corporate and M&A practice group.

“Their joining reflects our commitment to offer sophisticated, responsive and high-quality legal support to our clients on corporate advisory matters and transactions across our offices.”
