India’s J Sagar Associates (JSA) has hired capital markets lawyer Mathew Thomas as a partner in Mumbai. His most recent role was vice president of financial services firm AK Capital Services.

His hire continues a steady stream of partner additions by JSA, which welcomed a four-member M&A and PE team in Mumbai, led by equity partner Siddharth Mody, from Desai & Diwanji just last month. Previously, the firm hired Anirudh Kapoor and Gaurav Wahie from Trilegal and Bahrain’s Almoayed Chambers, respectively, and Shraddha Krishnan Dash from Trilegal, all in Gurugram. And in February, Varun Sehgaln joined JSA in Mumbai from hotel aggregator Oyo Hotels and Homes, where he was VP legal.

With 13 years of experience, Thomas advises on equity and debt offerings, REITs, rights issues and IPOs. His clients include companies in the technology, finance, green energy, retail, hospitality, textiles, electronics, entertainment, real estate, and power and roads industries.

Prior to joining AK Capital last year, Thomas had a short stint at Trilegal. Previously, he worked for Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co and Khaitan & Co.
