Our Senior Partner, Mr. Subir Majumdar opened a Maritime law firm in London, under the banner of Majumdar & Mogilnicki, which was wound up in the year 2001 since the demand in India became greater. Mr. Subir Majumdar, in addition to being qualified in India, is also qualified as an English Solicitor. Mr. Amitava Majumdar (Raja) has over two decades of experience in the Industry. He regularly advises various agencies of the Government of India and various state governments of maritime issues.

In addition to being Indian qualified lawyers, members of our firm have gained experience by working in overseas jurisdictions such as England and Singapore in firms such as Bentleys, Stokes and Lowless, Richards Butler (currently Reed Smith), Clyde & Co, Rodgers & Co (currently Rodgers Liu & Assoc), and P&I clubs such as the Shipowners P & I club, the North of England P&I club and Steamship Mutual P&I Club.
