“HSA is a leading firm known for its projects and energy practice,” she told India Business Law Journal. “I was delighted to have this opportunity to join … and return to private practice … It is an exciting time to practice in the projects and energy space.”

Before joining Ostro Energy, Sahay was head of legal for India at Weatherford Oil Tool and prior to this, a counsel at Trilegal, where she began her career.

Sahay has more than a decade of experience in handling deals in the energy sector. She also has advised on diverse corporate transactions including domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, private equity investments and joint ventures.

“The government is trying to encourage and attract investments in all industries and there is massive consolidation happening in the renewable energy space,” she said.
