Reply Link LondonCityLawyer 27 January 2009 at 16:26 Platinum Both founding partners of Platinum are Freshfields’ alumni – Karam Daultet-Singh and Nihar Mody. Platinum is essentially Freshfields India, no matter what either of them may say publicly. Wait and watch. As for the Bharuchas, not sure what their status is vis-a-vis FBD, but both the Bharuchas are very close to the FBD India head and I wouldn’t be surprised if something was in the pipeline between these three entities re a more formal tie up for India.

Reply Link Anonymous 31 January 2009 at 00:31 Platinum The very fact that Karam Daulat Singh has not denied the link expressly suggests that there is more to this than meets the eye. Its but obvious that DLA and FBD are trying to keep on the right side of the Indian regulators. Anywayz, I am willing to bet anything that Karam Daulet Singh would be the Managing PArtner of FBD in India whenever the market opens. Reply Link Magic Circle Lawyer 3 February 2009 at 00:21 FBD-Platinum There is little doubt that Platinum over a period of time has emerged as a firm that delivers Magic Circle quality work within the Indian market. And it is no surprise that it is helped largely in this venture by the overarching help of FBD. So, while it may be good to deny the link up, the fact remains that the tie-up delivers true value to clients. Reply Link Anonymous 3 February 2009 at 01:40 Other tie-ups? Any other US / Australian firms with tie-ups? Reply Link AMSS Lawyer 3 February 2009 at 13:00 Tie-up If the grapevine is to be believed AMSS Del and Mumbai are going to split into as many as three entities with Partners walking out with key clients and associates. A large Dua contigent in AMSS is a soft target for any US/Australian firm which is left behind in the sweep stakes. The reverse countdown for AMSS has begun – it only remains to be seen whether it wud disintegrate fully before deregulation or after!
