Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice with the addition of Sayak Maity as a partner in Singapore.
"India is an increasingly relevant destination for foreign investment and an important investor in EMEA and the US, which means high demand for firms that have India experience and offer cross-border M&A capabilities across Asia-Pacific, EMEA and the Americas," said White & Case partner John Reiss, Head of the Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice. "The addition of an M&A partner in Asia-Pacific with significant India experience means we can respond to that client demand effectively and efficiently in all three regions."
Maity regularly advises global private equity funds on investments in India and the wider Asia-Pacific region. He also advises international companies on mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures and corporate governance, with particular experience in the manufacturing, extractives, pharmaceuticals and technology sectors. Maity joins White & Case from AZB & Partners, where he was a partner.
"Sayak has excellent experience in India advising clients based in the country or those investing there on their corporate and M&A matters," said White & Case partner Dipen Sabharwal, Head of the India Country Group. "His addition follows the arrival of India-focused capital markets partner Rahul Guptan in Singapore in May and demonstrates our commitment to the continued development of our India team and our ambition to be the preeminent international law firm for India-related cross-border legal services."
Partner Donald Baker, a member of White & Case's global Executive Committee, added: "Sayak's arrival, together with the addition of Rahul Guptan, means we are perfectly positioned to advise clients on all their cross-border opportunities relating to India. Sayak's M&A experience is also complementary to the Firm's existing capabilities in Asia-Pacific, which have recently been strengthened with our addition of M&A partner Naoya Shiota in Tokyo, project development and finance partner Sungjin Kang in Seoul, capital markets partner Margie Chan in Hong Kong, and a further three lateral partners in Australia."
