Offshore law firm Harneys strengthens India practice in London
In a move to further strengthen its India practice, international offshore law firm Harneys has relocated India practice head Chetan Nagendra to its London office.
Leonard Birmingham, head of Harneys' corporate department and its London office, says: 'I am very pleased to welcome Chetan to London where he will provide time-sensitive service to our India focussed clients, whether they are located in Europe, the Middle East or India. Together with our strategic alliance in Cyprus, this move adds significantly to our capacity to meet the growing demand for India related offshore legal services.'
Since being formally established in 2008, Harneys' India practice has advised on a wide range of corporate and finance matters, including international business transactions, private equity, capital markets and structured finance.
Prior to the relocation, Nagendra (pictured) practiced at Harneys' British Virgin Islands office. Before joining Harneys he was regional counsel (Middle East and India hubs) for Diageo and a member of the company's India executive team. He joined Diageo from Amarchand & Mangaldas, a law firm in India, where he practiced for several years doing a mixture of corporate and financing transactions. Nagendra, who is fluent in Hindi, Kannada and English, is admitted to practice law in India, England and Wales, and the British Virgin Islands.
