An alumnus of a Faculty of Law, University of Delhi, Dua is also a chartered accountant. He was previously part of tax and legal practices of KPMG and Coopers & Lybrand (now PwC). He co-founded Seth Dua & Associates along with Sunil Seth in 1998.

"We are delighted to welcome Atul and his team. This will boost the firm's competency in dispute resolution, corporate commercial, M&A, taxation as well as antitrust and competition practices," Sujit Ghosh, national head, Advaita Legal, said in a statement.

“It is time we leveraged our strength to create a law firm which can deliver tax and legal services meeting global standards,” said Dua.

“Advaita Legal has taken the first step towards inorganic growth. Atul and Sujit will form a synergy to help Advaita Legal achieve its vision,” said Bithika Anand, founder and CEO of consultancy and management advisory firm Legal League Consulting.

This is the second instance in a year when an entire team of lawyers has moved with a partner. In April, Amit Khansaheb, Siddhartha Nair and Kaushik Mukherjee of law firm BMR Legal joined Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co along with close to 30 lawyers.
