India’s L&L Partners has welcomed back Sudipta Routh as a partner in Mumbai from rival IndusLaw. He moves to L&L along with three other lawyers.

L&L has seen a series of partner exits during and following the feud between Mohit Saraf and Rajiv Luthra, which resulted in Saraf taking 21 partners with him to set up Saraf & Partners.

The firm has since looked to replenish its ranks with lateral hires, including returning L&L alumni such as Subhash Bhutoria, Piyush Mishra, Asim Abbas, Sonali Choudhry and Prabjot Singh Bhullar.

With 25 years of experience, Routh is an expert in financing, corporate and commercial matters, and specialises in structuring funds, joint ventures, acquisitions and formulating entry and investment strategies.

Routh, who began his career at ICI India, has worked with law firms such as Trilegal, Clifford Chance and Samvad Partners. His earlier stint with L&L Parnters (then known as Luthra & Luthra) was from 2010 for a period of five years.
