    LEXport’s founder and managing partner Srinivas Kotni was named as one of our 40 leading lawyers under the age of 45 last year, demonstrating both the recognised quality and, what clients call, the youthful “dynamism” the firm brings to its work. A full-service operation, the firm was praised for its transactions, disputes and strategy and governance work during our research.


    A former member of fellow Indian Lawyer 250 firm Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan, Kotni specialises in corporate transactions, IP rights and tax work. He is also a “very able” disputes lawyer, having handled a lengthy commercial arbitration against MMTC prior to founding LEXport.


    In the past year the firm has assisted Sequoia Capital in numerous transactions, as well as contentious matters. Other clients include a leading cosmetics chain, one of India’s leading industry federations, a well-known Indian restaurant chain, and a major design company.
