Prior to the appointment, Mahalingam was with Omidyar Network, a Silicon Valley investment firm established by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, the law firm said in a statement.

At Omidyar, Mahalingam worked on venture transactions in India, Southeast Asia and Africa, focused on consumer internet and mobile, financial inclusion and education. 

“With him coming on board, we will be closer to our clients in Bangalore.
