Latham focuses on India with Davis Polk raid

Latham & Watkins has bolstered its Singapore office, adding Davis Polk & Wardwell corporate attorney Rajiv Gupta as of counsel as the firm moves to ramp up its offering to India.

Gupta previously worked in Davis Polk’s Hong Kong office, and specialises in representing investment banks and issuers on debt, convertible bonds and derivatives products.

Latham Singapore corporate chair Michael Sturrock said: “Bringing Rajiv on board underscores Latham’s conviction that India presents many opportunities for the firm.”

Gupta is a graduate of the University of Delhi and is licensed to practice in India, as well as New York.
