AZB & Partners has continued its antitrust growth with the addition of partner Dinoo Muthappa from Talwar Thakore & Associates in New Delhi.

She becomes AZB’s second antitrust hire in two months, with partner Kirthi Srinivas joining from Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas in Mumbai. She will be the firm’s seventh antitrust partner.

Muthappa specialises in abuse of dominance, merger control (both strategic and private equity), cartels and leniency, antitrust litigation, and compliance across various sectors. These include digital markets, payments, pharmaceuticals, automobiles, healthcare, media, FMCG, and glass.

She also advises private equity firms on notification of minority investments, gun-jumping concerns, strategy, and compliance.

Her notable work includes high-profile mergers such as Publicis-Omnicom, Unilever PLC-Unilever NV, and, most recently, HSBC-L&T.

Recently, Muthappa advised on divestitures in Linde AG's $90 billion merger with Praxair and counselled a consortium of investors on the acquisition of divestment assets from Veolia's acquisition of Suez SA. Additionally, she guided the Generali Group in majority acquisitions of Indian insurance joint ventures, securing multi-jurisdictional merger control approvals.
