In a global partnership promotion round of 27 across 11 offices, India group member Sushil Jacob has been promoted to partner at international giant Linklaters, with effect from 1 May 2018.

He is a 2002 graduate from NLSIU Bangalore, whose promotion to counsel at Linklaters we reported in 2015.

He had spent four years at AZB & Partners after graduation, joining Linklaters in Hong Kong in 2007 after a masters degree from LSE. He moved to London in 2010 as a managing associate.

According to the firm’s press release:

He has wide ranging experience advising on transactions relating to Indian cross-border acquisitions, disposals and joint ventures, advising both international and Indian clients. Recent transactions include advising Rosneft on the US$12.9bn acquisition of Essar Oil Limited from Essar Energy Holdings and Reliance Exploration & Production DMCC on the disposal of its East African petroleum storage, wholesale and retail operations and distribution business in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda.

Narayan Iyer, Head of India at Linklaters, says: “We are delighted Sushil is joining the ranks of the India practice as a partner, adding significant strength to the team, serving our clients involved in India. Sushil is an incredibly talented lawyer with vast experience in Indian joint ventures, acquisitions and disposals. He has led on a number of our key India deals in recent years and will continue to work with our clients in one of our key jurisdictions.”

Linklaters has a best friend relationship with Indian law firm Talwar Thakore & Associates.
