Banerjee specialises in banking and finance transactions with a focus on private debt, stressed assets, debt financing and structured debt products.

She will add significantly to execution capabilities on a broad range of financing transactions at Trilegal,” partner Kannan Rahul said in a statement.

Trilegal now has 117 partners across its offices.
