Indian firm Link Legal hires tax expert from Khaitan
Link Legal - India Law Services has scooped up the former exec director of the indirect tax practice at Khaitan & Co, Manish Mishra.
Mishra will be joining the firm as a partner and setting up a tax practice, starting with a standalone indirect tax unit, which would gradually merge with the other firm’s practice areas.
“The idea of joining Link Legal is, there is a lot of opportunity on the tax side: a practice that is doing well in the times to come,” he said. “So many changes in service tax laws, tax authorities are so aggressive, so many disputes are coming up - tax is not something you can ignore for the time being. Both from the firm’s perspective and my perspective it made a lot of sense.”
He added: “Link Legal otherwise has a complete portfolio – this was the missing link.”
