Pais’ experience spans sectors, with a special focus on energy, technology and financial services. His clients include multinational corporations and private equity funds looking to invest in India, Allen & Overy said.

Allen & Overy said the firm’s India group, which focuses on M&A and capital markets among other practice areas, comprises 100 partners and associates across the firm’s offices in London, Singapore, Dubai, New York and Silicon Valley.

Indian equities have recently been drawing in foreign institutional investors.

“As the world’s second fastest growing major economy and a market of increasing focus for clients, India is an important part of our global strategy, and a hire of Pais’ caliber and pedigree is key to us realizing our ambitions there,” said the co-head of the firm’s global corporate practice David Broadley.

Partners and management committee members at Trilegal wished Pais well in a statement on Wednesday.
