Megha Arora of HSA Advocates to join J Sagar as partner in Bengaluru

05 September, 2017

In what can be termed as a homecoming of sorts, Megha Arora will be back with J Sagar Associates almost six years after quitting the law firm. Arora, an alumnus of West Bengal National Law University of Judicial Science, in Kolkata, will join JSA’s Bengaluru office as partner.

Arora had started her career with Trilegal as an associate in 2005. She had moved to JSA in 2007, rising up the ranks to become a senior associate, before joining Khaitan & Co as its counsel. In her last job at HSA Advocates, Arora was a partner.

“Her joining is part of the firm’s domain expertise-based expansion,” said a joint statement from JSA joint managing partners, Dina Wadia and Shivpriya Nanda, and senior partner Amit Kapur. “She will strengthen our presence in South India and focus on infrastructure.”

Arora is a known face in project and energy advisory, with a special focus on oil and gas sector transactions, public tenders and bid advisory, besides project finance and mergers and acquisitions in the infrastructure space.

“JSA hires people at the partner level in very rare cases and strictly on the basis of need,” said a Mumbai-based recruitment consultant. “She has a lot of experience working with leading corporates in the infrastructure and allied space.”

J Sagar Associates is among India’s top eight law firms with around 90 partners and close to 300 lawyers across major cities.

Recently, JSA had witnessed one major exit in Sumit Sinha, who joined DMD Advocates’ mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital advisory practice.

Earlier, Kannan Rahul, a partner at the law firm’s banking and financial services practice, had also quit to join Trilegal as an equity partner of its banking and finance practice.
