Wadia Ghandy litigation head and partner Farid Karachiwala is joining J Sagar Associates (JSA) as equity partner in Mumbai with his team of five lawyers.

Karachiwala was the head of litigation at WG, while his team will be joining the firm in two principal associate and three associate designations.

Mumbai-based partner Farhad Sorabjee is the chair of the litigation practice, while Delhi-based partner Dhirendra Negi is co-chair.

Karachiwala is a GLC Mumbai alumnus.

We have reached out to Wadia Ghandy and JSA for comment.

Update 14:27: JSA co-managing partner Dina Wadia commented: “In the small and settled pool of senior litigators in Mumbai, it is not easy to find someone who is highly experienced, well regarded and most importantly for us, a cultural fit.

“It has been well worth the wait. He brings his team with him which is also a big plus.”

Update 15:13: JSA has issued a press release that he would be joining on 1 October:

Farid has been an equity partner for many years at Wadia Ghandy & Co., Mumbai, a highly-regarded law firm, and anchored their general litigation practice. Farid has a strong Mumbai based litigation practice and also a substantial real estate practice. His joining enhances and complements JSA’s rapidly growing litigation practice in Mumbai, besides adding to JSA’s real estate capability.
