Soayib Qureshi and Angad Sandhu have been inducted into PSL’s partnership. Qureshi was a senior associate at the firm for two years and Sandhu, an of counsel, moved from senior advocate Geeta Luthra’s chambers.
Sameer Jain, the managing partner of PSL and one of its founders, told India Business Law Journal that the firm planned to hire between three and five more lawyers to expand its disputes team. “Our long-term goal is to increase our strength to 40 lawyers by the end of 2018,” he said. “We wish to position ourselves as a mid-sized tier one law firm by doing quality disputes and selective corporate advisory work.”
Both Qureshi and Sandhu regularly appear before the Supreme Court, various high courts and tribunals across India, representing clients in civil and commercial disputes, and insolvency and bankruptcy cases.
Sandhu previously worked with DSK Legal and later with senior advocate Balbir Singh. His areas of expertise include taxation, anti-dumping, competition law and commercial disputes.
Qureshi has had stints with DSK Legal and with Jatan Singh, a central government standing counsel. He specializes in corporate and commercial litigation, arbitration and white-collar crime.
PSL was formed in November 2017 following the merger of Pamasis Law Chambers and SanAd Legal.
The new additions take the firm to seven partners and 25 lawyers across two offices in Delhi and Mumbai.
