Eversheds captures DWS India chief

Eversheds has poached Denton Wilde Sapte’s (DWS) head of India Gauri Advani in a bid to further expand into the Indian market. Advani, who has been head of India at DWS since 2003, will take a leading role in Eversheds’ 10-lawyer India team. Eversheds’ chair of its India group Parmjit Singh said the Indian market is extremely buoyant and that the momentum coming from the India group was very important. Eversheds’ dedicated India team was established 18 months ago and has since worked on some notable deals, including financing for some of Indian bank ICICI’s transactions.
