Paytm appoints Pallavi Shroff as board member to boost legal firepower

Benglauru: The move by payments firm Paytm to appoint veteran lawyer Pallavi Shroff as a board member is an indicator that the company is boosting its legal firepower in the battle with rivals Facebook, Google and others in the country’s booming but fast-changing digital payments market.

Last week, Paytm (One97 Communications Ltd) said Shroff, managing partner at law firm Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas, has joined its board.

Shroff is an expert in litigation and antitrust law and has been part of some of the biggest antitrust cases in India. Her firm represented, which together with non-profit body Consumer Unity and Trust Society, won a Rs136 crore ruling against Google India from the Competition Commission of India (CCI) in February for unfair search practices.
