In his role as a Partner in CAM’s General Corporate Practice, Rishi was noted for his skills in navigating the intricacies of complex issues with commercial approach as well as proven ability to efficiently manage deals from start to finish. His deal experience across a number of sectors, including technology, e-commerce, retail, real estate, food, manufacturing, and hospitality, has helped him to offer authoritative and experienced advice to large corporates, private equity funds, and Fortune 500 multi-national corporations on their entry as well as operations in India.
