The new law firm PSL, which currently has offices in Delhi and Mumbai, plans to expand operations to Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru and Kolkata, in addition to making quality hires.
The law firm was recently formed out of a merger between Delhi-based Pamasis Law Chambers and SanAd Legal from Mumbai with a combined strength of six partners and 20 lawyers.
Pamasis was established by Sameer Jain, Sandeep Bajaj, Siddharth Jain and Manju Jain in 2012, while SanAd Legal was formed by Aditya Chopra in 2015. “We knew Aditya before he founded SanAd Legal,” Sameer Jain, the joint managing partner at PSL, told India Business Law Journal.
“With SanAd legal, we came across various opportunities wherein the two firms represented the same matters and transactions, but different clients. There were cross referrals at many occasions and it was a very comfortable working relationship.”
PSL’s practices are conflict resolution, arbitration, and corporate and commercial laws along with intellectual property, competition law, taxation, land and property and civil law. The industries it will serve are media, energy, infrastructure, oil and gas, defense, retail, real estate, technology, manufacturing and telecom.
“The firm will also focus on extensive research on issues currently affecting individuals and businesses such as data security, crypto currency and energy. As part of our social responsibility, [we] plan to publish research papers and disseminate the knowledge through publications and seminars,” said Sameer Jain.
Sameer Jain and Bajaj are joint managing partners at PSL, while Siddharth Jain and Manju Jain are senior partners. Chopra is a partner and will head the Mumbai office.
