Indian firm Khaitan & Co hires 3 equity partners from PXV
Khaitan & Co has hired three co-founding equity partners of PXV Law Partners across its Delhi and Mumbai offices. Deepto Roy is set to join the Mumbai infrastructure team, Mohit Abraham is set to join the Delhi litigation practice, and GT Thomas Phillippe will join the Delhi corporate practice.
PXV will cease to exist after the departures, as the firm’s fourth equity partner - Pingal Khan - sets out to launch a new firm with non-equity partner Souvik Bhadra. Reports say that Khaitan intends to hire around half of the associates who worked with the departing partners at PXV.
