Indian law firm J. Sagar Associates has bolstered its Mumbai-based disputes practice with the addition of a four-lawyer team from Krishnamurthy & Co (K Law), led by partner Ayush Agarwala.

Agarwala, who joins as a salaried partner, is the firm’s fourth partner hire in a month. Former Trilegal counsel Anurag Shrivastav joined earlier this month, while disputes pro Harshavardhan Abburi joined in Hyderabad, and Rakesh Warrier left his in-house role at Zetwerk to join the firm in Bengaluru.

Agarwala’s team comprises Suvaaankoor Das, who has joined as principal associate, and associates Sanjana Pandey, Rishab Aggarwal, and Mayank Sharma.

Agarwala has close to 15 years’ experience advising on cross-border disputes and insolvency matters. His team will develop the firm’s infrastructure and energy practice in Mumbai, working closely with joint managing partner Amit Kapur.

“The team brings valuable expertise in domestic and international disputes, as well as insolvency matters,” said Kapur and Vivek K Chandy, JSA’s joint managing partners in a statement.
