Trilegal makes bumper crop of six new partners (and a record two women), all from mix of NLUs

Trilegal has promoted six of its lawyers to its equity partnership, more than at any point in its history, growing to a total partnership size of 50.*

While only six of the firm’s 44 partners (or 14%) are currently women, come 1 April with this latest promotion, that ratio will increase slightly to eight out of 50 (or 16%).

Nalsar Hyderabad produced two of the new partners, with one each hailing from other national law schools NLU Jodhpur, NUJS Kolkata, NLSIU Bangalore and Nuals Kochi.

The six new partners are:

  • Amar Narula (NLU Jodhpur 2008, energy and infrastructure, New Delhi),
  • Anirudh Agarwala (NUJS Kolkata 2010, corporate, Mumbai),
  • Anuradha Agnihotri (Nalsar Hyderabad 2006, disputes, Bengaluru),
  • Harsh Jain (NLSIU Bangalore 2009, corporate, Mumbai),
  • Tine Abraham (Nalsar Hyderabad 2009, disputes, New Delhi) and
  • Wiseroy Damodaran (Nuals Kochi 2008, corporate, Bengaluru).

“These are all exceptional practitioners,” commented partner Rahul Matthan in a press release: “The new partners are being promoted across practices and offices. This is testament to the depth of the talent pool in the organisation.

“It is also a moment of great happiness and pride that two of them started their career at the firm and have now been elected to the partnership. It is an exciting time for legal practice in India and we are well poised to address a growing demand for top end legal advice.”

Partner Kosturi Ghosh added: “It is particularly heartening to see an increasing number of women partners getting promoted every year in Trilegal. Diversity is important in an organization as it creates a more rounded and inclusive work culture.”

Trilegal has always operated one of the harder partnerships to enter, reflected in promotions of usually two or three partners per year (though in 2015, it had promoted five to partnership).
