Two more Link Legal partners leave: employment Raunak, disputes Nikhil Rodrigues

Link Legal (DH) partner Raunak, Nikhil Rodrigues leave

Two Link Legal India Law Services partners have resigned from the firm: Raunak in Gurgaon, and Nikhil Rodrigues in Mumbai.

Raunak had since 2011 been with DH Law’s satellite office in the National Capital Region (NCR), which had merged into Link Legal India Law Services in November 2017.

The 2008 ILS Pune graduate specialises in employment, general corporate commercial, hospitality and real estate work.

Rodrigues’ firm RM Partners Advocates had combined its two-partner practice into the combined DH Law Link Legal entity around the time of that merger, integrating primarily into the DH Law side of the combined firm.

He is a 2003 SDM Law College Mangalore graduate, who had begun his career at DH Law, followed by Desai & Diwanji, Kochhar & Co and five years of running RM, with co-founder Jyoti Maheshwari, who had also moved to Link Legal with Rodrigues. We understand she has not resigned.

We have reached out to Raunak, Rodrigues and Link Legal but are yet to hear from them about their future plans and/or for comment.

Update 18:49: Link Legal CEO Jayanarayanan NR commented: “Raunak has taken a break for health reasons. We will continue to engage with him as an of counsel.

“Nikhil is moving in-house and we wish him all the very best and we hope to continue our association with him in his new role.”

Raunak and Rodrigues are the third partners to be departing Link Legal in a month, with us having reported on Delhi partner Saloni Gupta’s departure to Apple’s in-house team in early May.
