Trilegal has expanded its corporate team with the hire of a new partner in Mumbai.

Harsh Maggon joins the firm from AZB & Partners, where he served as a partner since 2016.

Sridhar Gorthi, a partner at Trilegal remarked: "We are delighted to welcome Harsh Maggon to our growing corporate practice. We anticipate a significant uptick in public M&A and private equity deals in the market. His addition to the partnership will further strengthen our corporate practice at a time when the market for this kind of work is expanding."

With a focus on private equity and public M&A, Maggon advises on matters involving delisting offers, takeover offers, secondary exits, corporate governance issues, minority stake acquisitions and control deals. His previous experiences include working for Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, DSK Legal and Economic Laws Practice.

This marks the third time that Trilegal has raided AZB in two years, following the appointments of funds partners Aditya Jha and Ganesh Rao in 2018 and brings Trilegal’s numbers up to 51 partners.
