Shivani Sanghi Joins Fieldfisher to Boast their India Practice
Shivani Sanghi is on board as a partner and head of India practice
An international arbitration and litigation specialist, Shivani Sanghi has joined Fieldfisher as a partner and head of the firm's India practice. She will be with its commercial disputes team in London.
Commenting on her appointment, Colin Gibson, head of dispute resolution at Fieldfisher said, "We are very excited to bring Sanghi on board, given her experience in India and her strong foundation in Russia and CIS-related arbitration and commercial litigation.
"Our London commercial disputes practice continues to go from strength to strength, as evidenced by the high-quality talent we continue to attract to the firm. We look forward to Sanghi joining us and to developing growing areas of geographical expertise within our firm."
Sanghi added, "I am delighted to be joining a meritocratic firm that supports young partners to build up new areas of work and bring fresh skills to the team. Fieldfisher has an excellent reputation for commercial disputes and I am keen to add my skills and experience to its bench strength in international arbitration, with a particular focus on India."
Dual-qualified, Sanghi is a solicitor-advocate in England and Wales and an advocate in India. Her practice at Fieldfisher will centre on developing her existing expertise and client base in India-related arbitrations, a rapidly expanding area of business and a jurisdiction of focus for Fieldfisher.
She acts for clients in a variety of sectors, including media, hotel, energy, telecom, banking, private equity, pharma and software technology. She has represented clients in several high-profile cases before the English courts, including the Court of Appeal and the UK Supreme Court.
Sanghi has also represented clients in high stake arbitrations under the rules of various institutions in venues around the world and has significant experience in emergency arbitrations.
Having experience of the Indian courts, including the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court, Sanghi advised Indian corporates on matters including cross-border disputes involving multi-party arbitrations and high stake contractual disputes related to anti-suit injunctions, challenges to foreign arbitral awards and other aspects of private international law.
A 2009 graduate of the National Academy of Legal Studies and Research (NALSAR), Hyderabad, she was a part of the commercial litigation and arbitration teams at King & Wood Mallesons (formerly S J Berwin), Fried Frank and Covington & Burlington.
