Indian law firm Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas has significantly expanded its M&A offering in Gurugram with the addition of a 10-member corporate team from IndusLaw, led by partners Manish Gupta (L), Pratyush Khurana and Ashish Ahluwalia.

Gupta, who joins SAM as an equity partner, has almost two decades of experience advising clients on domestic and cross-border transactions in sectors such as e-commerce, financial technology, ed-tech, IT and ITES, logistics, real estate, healthcare, energy and infrastructure. He was earlier at Link Legal.

Khurana, who also joined IndusLaw from Link Legal, represents clients on M&As and corporate advisory, and his client list includes Info-edge, Waterbridge Ventures, 360 One, and Classplus.

Ahluwalia was previously an associate at SAM before becoming partner at IndusLaw. His clients include Big Capital and Rukam Capital, apart from clients in the private equity/venture capital space.

SAM has been expanding across regions this year following a loss of nine partners, including an eight-partner jump, to rival Trilegal.

The firm doubled its partner strength in Chennai with the addition of two partners, added a corporate partner duo from Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas in Mumbai, hired AZB & Partners’ real estate practice head in Delhi and landed technology specialist Hemant Krishna from Lakshmikumaran and Sridharan in Bengaluru.

SAM also turned to international law firm Simpson Thacher & Bartlett to hire investment funds partner Gaurita Udiyawar in Mumbai.
