Link Legal India Law Services joins forces with DH Law Associates to create a top 15 law firm with a strong foothold in Delhi and Mumbai. The newly merged entity will retain Link Legal's name to create a 35 partner strong law firm with 155 lawyers. Link Legal co-founder Atul Sharma will be managing partner with Nusrat Hassan of DH Law who will be co-managing partner.
Commenting on the merger, Nusrat Hassan said it would 'galvanise the already strong full service practices and will create a national firm with unparalleled strengths in all practice areas. The merger will also increase the merged entity’s international reach.'
