International legal recruitment specialists, Laurence Simons, have launched a new operation in Mumbai, India. The Mumbai office will cover In-house and Private Practice appointments across India while focusing specifically on Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune and Chennai. Laurence Simons is part of the global multi brand recruitment family, FiveTen Group.

Naveen Tuli, London-based Global Managing Director of Laurence Simons said, “The launch of our Indian operation in Mumbai is testament to the pioneering spirit within Laurence Simons. We were the first international legal recruitment specialist on the ground in Brazil, Russia and Dubai, and are extremely proud to have now achieved this in India.

Laurence Simons has appointed Vijesh Patel as Managing Partner of the Mumbai operation. Patel will report into Naveen Tuli and will focus on further developing the Laurence Simons’ operation across the country and in particular mid to senior level appointments within both multinationals and law firms.

Previously Vijesh worked as Associate Director within the FiveTen Group in London, where he focused on professional services and was a finalist in the UK recruiter of the year awards in 2008. Patel brings over six years’ recruitment experience.

Vijesh Patel said: “The Laurence Simons brand heritage opens doors globally. The international nature of the business and scope for growth across India is something I am very excited by. I look forward to meeting the needs of Laurence Simons’ ever increasing global client base and building on the current legal recruitment service we offer across Asia”.

Naveen Tuli said: “Whilst we have been working within a number of household-named multinationals in India for over 10 years, our Mumbai office will inevitably bring additional benefit and value to the service we offer our clients and candidates throughout the country. Vijesh will focus on further developing our India business, as well as working with our teams in other parts of Asia and internationally. I look forward to Vijesh contributing to our thriving Asian operation”.
