Mumbai-based Dipti Lavya Swain, who had been general counsel (GC) at Azure Power until around six months ago, has set up law firm DLS Law Offices.
Swain is a 2006-NLU Jodhpur graduate who had joined Azure from Luthra & Luthra in Jan 2018, where he was a partner, said that he had begun working independently on matters after leaving Azure in June.
DLS Law Offices now has 3 partners, consisting of Swain, litigation partner Haripad Mohanty who is heading up its Orissa office, and litigation partner Anish Desai in Mumbai.
Founder & managing partner Swain said, “This is a full service law firm, we will be doing just about everything, but the core expertise will be private equity and M&A corporate commercial transactions, and we will obviously be sector agnostic.”
He added that his practice was fairly sector agnostic, though at Luthra he had been mostly into private equity and M&A work.
As GC at Azure, he said he was looking at “anything relating to the renewable energy sector”, including projects, financing, regulatory work, raising capital & more.
