The seven K Law partners whom we reported last month to have been negotiating their exits, have jointly started law firm Anoma Legal Advocates, with offices in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore.

They will be joined by their teams, including a number of associate partners, though we are not yet aware of the exact make-up and headcount of the firm.

We understand that the name Anoma means illustrious in Sanskrit and also has significance in Buddhism.

All seven will be co-founding partners, without a single managing partners.

The new firms co-founding partners are, in Bangalore:

  • Abhinav Singh, who specialises in equity investments, M&A,

in Delhi:

  • Nilesh Chandra, infrastructure, PPP, energy, project finance, and

in Mumbai:

  • Krishna Venkat, equity investments, M&A, healthcare,
  • Kumar Abhishek Singh, maritime laws, disputes, white collar crime,
  • Sankar Swamy, equity investments, M&A, debt finance,
  • Sanket Sethia, equity investments, M&A, real estate, and
  • Sharad Joshi, infrastructure, PPP, energy, banking and finance.

K Law managing partner Naina Krishnamurthy commented at the time of their exits on 20 April that the partners’ entrepreneurial ambitions were “something that has been in the works for some time”.

We have reached out to Krishnamurthy for further comment.

Departing partner Kumar Abhishek Singh said at the time: “We are still reviewing our options, whether together or not, it will be clarified in due course, and shortly.

“As on date we don’t have a concrete decision. whether connected or not, only time will say.”

Indeed, some plans regarding Anoma were already afoot: according to public records, the website domain anomalegal.com had been registered on 15 April.

We have reached out to some Anoma partners for comment.
