ALMT Legal, an Indian firm based in London, has set up a new office in Bombay.
The Bombay office is headed by partner Ananjan Mitter, who left London in the summer. Sameer Tapia, one of the founding partners of ALMT Legal, said: "Bombay is India's commercial and financial capital and a large port. It gives us access to Delhi and is a good divide between the north and the south." The firm has associated offices in cities throughout India. Its Delhi office opened 18 months ago and is headed by partners Ashim Vachher and Sunil Tyagi. The Bombay office is the first to be led by a partner from the London practice. The firm was founded in London two years ago, when four partners broke away from another Indian law firm in London, Singhania & Co. ALMT Legal is a niche boutique firm advising Western companies which want to move into India on Indian law. Clients include insurance companies and airlines.
