ANM Global has added Suresh Amesar as a media and entertainment practice partner.
Amesar had been a partner at Azendor Consulting and Indus Lexus Consulting in Mumbai for three years previously.
Before that, he’d had 13 years in-house, between Viacom 18 Media and Disney India (see full work history below).
According to ANM’s press release, he “is known to be an all-rounder by his seniors owing to his experience of working in different capacities during his tenure with [the] media giants”.
His joining takes ANM Global to a total of 9 partners, including 2 associate partners with a total headcount of around 40 fee-earners.
ANM managing partner Nidhish Mehrotra commented in the press release: “Suresh is a multi-facet lawyer and is the perfect fit for our consistently growing media practice. He adds to the team, his rich and extensive experience, which will help our clients achieve maximum legal prowess and backing.
“We are sure that with his joining, our unpanelled media practice offerings will grow exponentially.”
The firm’s head of media and entertainment, Anushree Rauta, commented that his in-house experience would accelerate the firm’s growth.
Amesar added: “I see big ambition in the Team at ANM Global, and the synergy in our vision to achieve collective growth by giving quality service to all our clients. We all felt and decided that now was the right time to join forces, contribute, and develop a new range of services in order to respond to the industry’s needs better with more expertise. I assure you, there’s a positive feeling for the year ahead at ANM Global and, it’s been a great start to the year for all of us.”
