Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Capital Markets Practice and India Country Group with the addition of Rahul Guptan as a partner in Singapore.
"We expect to see a continued increase in Indian companies raising capital through cross-border offerings in the next couple of years," said White & Case partner John Vetterli, Head of the Global Capital Markets Practice. "Together with our leading equity and debt capital markets practices in the US and the UK, the addition of an experienced India-focused capital markets partner in Asia-Pacific will make us the firm of choice to advise on these transactions."
Guptan is a capital markets lawyer who advises Indian and international companies across a variety of sectors, as well as investment banks and private equity firms, on transactions involving equity and debt capital markets, M&A, private equity and regulatory matters. Guptan joins White & Case from Clifford Chance, where he was a partner and co-head of the Global India Group.
"Rahul is an experienced and well known capital markets lawyer who has advised on a number of ‘market first’ capital markets offerings by Indian issuers," said White & Case partner Nandan Nelivigi, Head of the India Country Group. "Rahul’s strong, longstanding relationships with key stakeholders in India, Singapore and Hong Kong and his deep understanding of the Indian market make him an excellent addition to our existing capabilities."
White & Case partner Baldwin Cheng, Regional Section Head, Asia-Pacific Corporate, Finance & Restructuring, said: "Rahul's arrival demonstrates our continued commitment to growth in Asia-Pacific and builds on our addition of seven lateral partners in the region in the past 12 months. In addition to his focus on capital markets, Rahul’s relationships with the Indian banking, investment and business communities means he will also work closely with our M&A, banking, restructuring and disputes practices in Asia-Pacific to grow the services we offer in relation to India."
