Indian law firm Saraf & Partners has added Ramya Suresh from AZB & Partners, the firm’s second M&A partner hire in Mumbai in a fortnight following the addition of Dhruv Chatterjee from Trilegal at the end of September.            

Suresh is a transactions attorney with experience guiding cross-border deals and private equity ventures across sectors, particularly infrastructure, healthcare, consumer products, energy, and financial services.

She was recently on the AZB team that successfully represented the promoters of Reliance Industries Limited in a dispute with the securities regulator, Securities and Exchange Board of India, over allegations of non-compliance with certain regulations.

In her time at Trilegal, prior to AZB, she advised institutional investor Naspers on its lead role in a $540 million funding round into edtech company Byju's.

Saraf had also added tax partner Amit Gupta in Delhi and merged with real estate boutique SRGR earlier this year.

The firm has a total of 35 partners across offices in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru.
