Indian law firm Saraf and Partners has carried on its recent expansion streak with the hire of a projects M&A team in Delhi from Luthra and Luthra Law Offices, led by partner Avirup Nag.
Saraf, which itself spun off from Luthra in 2021, has been aggressively expanding this year. Earlier this month, it launched an office in Hyderabad led by partners Durga Bose Gandham and Altaf Fathima. Prior to that, it added M&A partners Ramya Suresh from AZB and Dhruv Chatterjee from Trilegal in Mumbai, and tax partner Amit Gupta in Delhi. It also merged with real estate boutique SRGR.
Nag, who had been a partner at Luthra since 2021, advises developers and investors on energy and infrastructure projects, M&A and other energy-related matters including climate-responsive projects and compliance. He joined Luthra in 2021 from IndusLaw, prior to which he was at HSA Advocates and Trilegal.
Nag’s arrival means Saraf now has 38 partners in total.
