Trilegal ups partnership to 51 with Harsh Maggon

Trilegal has confirmed its vote to admit AZB & Partners Mumbai partner Harsh Maggon into its partnership and corporate practice.

The 2007 SLS Pune graduate specialises in public mergers and acquisitions and private equity transactions, and according to our deals database, had advised on at least five corporate deals in 2018-19, having led on a deal for TPG Growth Advisors twice.

According to Trilegal, he has advised on multiple takeovers involving open offers and schemes of arrangements, and has worked on delisting offers, as well as advising on corporate governance issues in listed entities, control deals (including in distress situations), secondary exits and minority stake acquisitions.

Maggon was made a partner at AZB in 2016, shortly after he had joined from Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas.

He had begun his career at Economic Laws Practice (ELP), moving to DSK Legal in 2008 and Amarchand Mangaldas, as it then was, in 2012.

Trilegal is now 51 partners with Maggon’s addition.

Trilegal partner Sridhar Gorthi commented in a press release: “We anticipate a significant uptick in public M&A and private equity deals in the market. Harsh has excellent credentials in this space and has worked with marquee PE funds on significant transactions.

“His addition to the partnership will further strengthen our corporate practice at a time when the market for this kind of work is expanding.”

Maggon is the latest lateral partner hire by Trilegal from AZB, following funds partners Ganesh Rao and Aditya Jha last year, and competition partner Nisha Kaur Uberoi in 2017.

We have reached out to AZB Mumbai managing partner Zia Mody for comment last week and today.

Update 19:04: Mody commented: “We wish Harsh all the very best.”
