Amarchand Brings Aboard Mumbai Tax Practice Head
Amarchand & Mangaldas & Suresh A. Shroff & Co. has brought aboard a new head for its tax practice in Mumbai.
S. R. Patnaik was previously a Delhi tax partner with Luthra & Luthra. His practice focuses on direct tax advice, including international and corporate taxes and transfer pricing, as well as tax implications of cross-border mergers and acquisitions.
Also a qualified accountant, Patnaik had been a tax partner with Luthra & Luthra since 2008. Before that, he worked at a related accountancy run by law firm founder Rajiv Luthra’s brother.
Patnaik is the second Luthra & Luthra partner to head to Amarchand in recent months. Litigation partner Ajit Warrier joined Amarchand’s Delhi office in June.
Amarchand now has over 600 lawyers, including 86 partners, in its seven offices.
