Linklaters divides control over Africa and India groups

February 2, 2015 In the wake of Emerging Europe, Middle East and Africa (EEMEA) head Sandeep Katwala's decision to step down from his role, Linklaters is reorganizing its management by splitting control over its Africa and India groups.

Katwala was head of Linklater's India group for 10 years. In 2010, he took on the role of EEMEA managing partner after former head Stuart Scott became Asia managing partner. As EEMEA head, Katwala saw Linklater's alliance with South Africa's Webber Wentzel to fruition.

London projects partner Andrew Jones will assume the role of head of the Africa group. Linklaters firmwide managing partner Simon Davies will oversee the EEMEA role on an interim basis. Narayan Iyer will become group head of India.

Katwala will continue to practice for clients in India, the Middle East and Africa.
