Pathik Arora, who was until recently vice president, legal and secretarial, at New York Stock Exchange-listed Azure Power, has joined Hammurabi & Solomon’s New Delhi office as an equity partner.
He is a senior partner at the full-service firm, which has approximately 100 lawyers and 13 partners, of which six are equity partners.
Commenting on his move, Arora said he was looking forward to using his experience and expertise to expand the firm’s corporate, M&A, private equity, financial and capital markets practice and that he saw this as “a long-term mutually beneficial relationship”.
Arora has previously been an assistant general counsel at InterGlobe Hotels.
Hammurabi & Solomon recently merged with Brahmand Lexis, a smaller Mumbai-based law firm. In April, it set up the legal compliance and legal risk management company Hammurabi & Solomon Sand Legal Compliance Services.
