3 April 2023: Trilegal, one of India’s leading law firms, announced today that Sridhar Gorthi and Nishant Parikh had won the coveted ‘Asian Law Firm Leader of the Year’ recognition at the Asia Legal Awards 2023.

The panel of judges* was particularly impressed with “the way Trilegal has gone against tradition in implementing a true democracy in terms of firm management”. Trilegal follows an all-equity lockstep model that is unique in India and many parts of Asia. It is also among the few firms in the region that has an elected management. Sridhar and Nishant, both accomplished and well recognised corporate lawyers, were elected to management in 2020. Their leadership has seen the firm achieve exponential growth on the strength of its culture of collaboration and reputation for client service.

Accepting the award at the ceremony in Singapore, Sridhar and Nishant said, “We are honoured by this prestigious recognition. This is a recognition of the institution building ethos of our firm, of which we are very proud. We look forward to growing the firm’s legacy with the support of our clients and our people.”

Rahul Matthan, Partner and Member of the Trilegal Board, said, “This award is particularly gratifying because it recognises the effort that goes into building, managing and growing a strong, democratically governed law firm. These principles have held us in good stead over the years but particularly during the pandemic when dynamic leadership and an unflagging commitment to our core values saw us not only withstand these challenges but emerge stronger than ever before.”

Nisha Kaur Uberoi, Partner and National Head of the Competition Law Practice at Trilegal, said, “Leadership is taking calculated risks and driving action, even if that means going against the tide sometimes. Sridhar and Nishant have demonstrated strong leadership and have been agents of change in the profession. Trilegal’s exponential growth under the leadership of its elected management reiterates our commitment to equality, inclusiveness and merit.”

The Asian Law Firm Leader of the Year recognition is bestowed to two Asia based managing Partners, each at a local and international law firm who have displayed excellence in leadership, commitment to the group’s members, as well as stability or growth in headcount, level of services, and jurisdictional and practice area coverage. Efforts to launch unique projects, initiatives or alliances that deliver a competitive advantage for the firm are also considered as part of the evaluation criteria.
