Pankaj Singla, a former foreign law researcher at Soga Law Office in Tokyo, has joined Phoenix Legal’s New Delhi office as an associate.
Commenting on his move, Singla said he was “really excited to be part of an excellent team” at Phoenix Legal. Singla, who has an LLM in international economic and business law from Kyushu University, was at Soga Law Office for almost two years.
Describing his time at the firm as invaluable, Singla told India Business Law Journal that he had worked with a team of “some of the most diligent lawyers I have ever known” on transactions concerning multiple jurisdictions including Singapore, the US, Mexico and Turkey. He said he continued to be on excellent terms with his former firm and was sure there would be opportunities “in the near future” to work with it on India-Japan transactions.
Singla had previously been at Corporate Professionals in New Delhi.
