Nikhil P Joseph (NJo) is the "Guy dressed a bit too formal, no?" at the firm. He started his career at Nishith Desai Associates and worked with Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas before finding his way to the firm, where he quickly built a reputation for being a calm and collected Zen Master around the office - for the most part. If he's made to miss his lunch at 1 PM on the dot, Zen Master can be found pacing furiously and on some days even  storms out of the office (only to return promptly to check if his lunch has arrived) .


He's known for his ability to break down legal gibberish into understandable humanspeak. He follows a collaborative approach to work, and has also received appreciation from across the table for his role in closing deals through friendly assistance and dialogue. When he's not working, he likes play the piano, and trek the hills around Mumbai with his wife (who may or may not have ghost-written his profile for him).
