Padmini Rathore, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the law firm DSK Legal, is set to join Khaitan & Co as the Chief Practice Officer.

Rathore, an alumnus of Mudra Institute of Communications, began her career with GroupM as a media planner. She went on to work with consulting firm Accenture and the local subsidiary of the UK-based pharma major GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare.

Prior to joining DSK Legal, Rathore was the principal and head of consulting at Rainmaker Online Training Solutions. She also worked with the law firm Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas as director of business planning and compliance and with erstwhile Amarchand Mangaldas & Suresh A Shroff & Co as director strategy.

“Padmini’s role will encompass the oversight, strategy, and management of our Practice & Sector groups, in close collaboration with the leaders of the various practices,” said Amar Sinhji, Executive Director at Khaitan & Co, said, “With a leadership of more than 200 partners, this is a key management role, which will help align firm-wide strategy & management of all practice groups. Padmini’s extensive experience in overall firm management & strategy will be very helpful in her role at our firm, given our scale and continuing growth trajectory.”

In March last year, Khaitan & Co became the first Indian law firm to reach the 200 partners milestone. Currently, the firm has a bench strength of over 1000 lawyers. The firm has also recently onboarded a Chief Risk, Audit & Compliance Officer and a Chief Digital Officer.
