Phoenix insolvency partner Jyoti Singh starts boutique indie lit practice in Mumbai

Jyoti Singh, partner at Phoenix Legal in Mumbai in disputes and insolvency, has started a boutique disputes and litigation firm.

She specialises in disputes, including insolvency, finance, shareholder disputes, corporate fraud and white collar crimes.

“I’ve been with Phoenix for nine years and been in the profession for nearly 20 years. Phoenix is like a family, it’s a fab place to work,” she commented.

It was an “entrepreneurial buzz” that led her to go independent. “Since I do exclusive disputes and insolvency practice, I thought it’s good to start on your own.”

Singh said that she consciously set up not as a law firm but as an individual practitioner and had no plans at the moment to expand into a partnership set-up. But she had hired one lawyer and was looking at expanding with others slowly going forward.

She said she would both be filing in her own name and arguing matters.

Singh is a 2000 Maharshi Dayanand University LLB and 2002 LLM graduate, and had worked at Jugal Wadhwa and Co, followed by Dhir & Dhir from 2005 to 2010 before joining Phoenix as a partner in its all-equity partnership.

She was heading up the firm’s Mumbai litigation office when it was started in 2011, in Nariman Point (though two years later this office merged into a single Churchgate office).

Phoenix Legal commented when contacted: “We wish Jyoti all the best for her independent counsel practice and hope to collaborate with her in her new avatar.”

Phoenix Legal will have a total of 13 partners after her departure.
