Naik Naik & Company, as it will be now known after a re-branding effective tomorrow, has opened up a new office focusing on media law in Andheri in order to be closer to Bollywood studio clients, while finalizing a third Mumbai office in mid-town and preparing to open in Delhi.
The new 2,000 square foot office is based on Veera Desai Road in Lokhandwala and will be headed by Naik partner Madhu Gadodia and senior associate Ravi Suryawanshi. The firm’s managing partner Ameet Naik said: “We want to be one of the first major law firms to start a full scale office in the suburbs and the idea is to take it to the same level as this office in South Mumbai.”
“We want to operate in three different locations in the city. In midtown we are going to take a very large space between Parel and Worli.” He said that alongside the existing office in Nariman Point, it was a “huge expansion” in excess of 5,000 square feet, and four lateral senior associates would be joining the firm from Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.
Naik also said that their firm is planning to setup a new office by the end of this year with three people currently working in temporary offices in Delhi for the firm.
