India’s AZB & Partners has welcomed a team of six real estate lawyers in the southern city of Bengaluru from J Sagar Associates, led by partner Malini Raju, who makes a return to the firm.  

Raju spent nearly 15 years with JSA following her earlier stint with AZB. She advises developers, financial institutions and investment funds on real estate transactions, due diligence, and creating allied documents, including property development and construction agreements.

Joining AZB with Raju are Vidhyadhare S, Deepika Nagaraja, Prannathi Ajith Kumar, Nagashree Prasad and Lavanya HM.

Indian law firms have been beefing up their presence in recent years in Bengaluru, the country’s tech hub. This year alone saw Wadia Ghandy & Co, Emerald Law Offices, and Stratage Law Partners set up shop there.
