The merged firm will have 80 lawyers, including 12 partners, between Mumbai and Delhi covering such practice areas as mergers and acquisitions, competition law, white-collar defense and intellectual property law. The��merger will become effective on Nov. 1 and operate under the name��Bharucha &amp; Partners. Senior partner M.P.��Bharucha <a href="http://www.dnaindia.com/business/report-mum-on-split-m-p-bharucha-takes-law-into-his-hands-1157744" target="_blank">founded the firm in 2008 with his wife Alka</a>. Both were partners at legacy��Amarchand &amp; Mangaldas and Suresh A Shroff &amp; Co., the��largest law firm in India at the time. M.P. and Alkas son Justin and a former Amarchand senior associate Vivek Vashi also joined as founding partners. Bharucha &amp; Partners has a strong corporate practice, having represented multinationals and large Indian corporations on transactions and advisory matters. Earlier this year, Alka Bharucha led a team acting for��Mumbai-based telecom carrier Idea Cellular Ltd. on a <a href="http://www.international.law.com/id=1202783681682" target="_blank">$12.7 billion acquisition </a>of��Vodafone Groups Indian business. The firms other clients include U.S. agrochemical Monsanto Co., U.K. fashion house��Burberry Group Plc. and French food company Danone. Arthe Law, the smaller firm of the two, is also a younger firm.

Alka Bharucha said the merger will expand the firms offering to clients. "D.P.s extensive track record, especially in white-collar litigation, will be an adjunct to all our corporate work, while Abhishek���s expertise in IP, competition ... sports, media and health care will add a niche dimension to our existing practice," she said. Partner Vivek Vashi, an intellectual property law specialist, is leaving��Bharucha &amp; Partners to launch an independent practice.��Bharucha &amp; Partners said the firm will continue to work with Vashi. In recent years several other mergers have taken place between medium-sized and boutique Indian firms.
