New Delhi-based full-service law firm HSA Advocates has hired Manan Shukla as partner to strengthen its core dispute resolution capabilities.
Shukla, who was working as a senior lawyer with Agarwal Law Associates, specialises in maritime law and domestic and international commercial arbitration and litigation.
A graduate from ILS Law College in Pune, Shukla has more than a decade of experience in handling arbitration matters and has also argued cases before high courts and the Supreme Court of India.
He has also been involved in arbitration proceedings and commercial litigation matters in Dubai, Hong Kong, London, and Singapore, HSA Advocates said in a statement.
