Welcome to our New Contributors

Over the last few weeks, we have been fortunate to have several new contributors join us. This has significantly expanded the scope of the discussion on this Blog into areas that were hitherto not focused on, such as taxation, arbitration and international trade. To briefly introduce them:

Jayant Thakur is a practising Chartered Accountant in Mumbai, with interests in securities and corporate laws. He has a keen interest in writing and has written numerous articles in various business newspapers such as the Economic Times, Business Standard and Financial Express, and also in various professional journals. He has also authored books on “Mergers and Acquisitions”, “Takeovers of Companies”, Law Relating to Non-Banking Financial Companies” and “ESOPS – Law and Practice”.

The bright and enthusiastic team of students from the National Law School of India University, Bangalore comprises V. Niranjan, Mihir Naniwadekar and Shantanu Naravane (all in their IV Year) and Venugopal Mahapatra and Gautam Bhatia (all in their III Year).

B.N. Harish is a corporate lawyer and founding partner of Narasappa, Doraswamy and Raja, based in Bangalore. R.V. Anuradha, is a partner at Clarus Law Associates in Delhi, with her specialisation being international trade law and competition law.

It is my pleasure to welcome them (belatedly though) to the team.

  • Chanced upon this blog today. I am quite late, I must say.

    Excellent work all round – I am particularly interested in the corporate taxation and related coverage; and the young team from the NLSIU has done an exceedingly thorough job. Particularly liked the focus on different areas; from 14A controversies to transfer pricing and DTAA. Other than that too; I must thank all other contributors too for the excellent coverage spanning several important and practical fields. Congrats…
