Our Culture is what defines us and is the key to our success.

Jerome Merchant + Partners is a genuine partnership, a union between ambitious lawyers from different walks of life who have come together to achieve excellence.

Our commitment to diversity, and equality is unambiguous, and we treasure our fellow lawyers for who they are.

We know that our lawyers are at their best when they can think and work in an encouraging, safe and open work environment. An opendoor policy and a flat organization structure not only define us, but also reflects in the high quality of work we deliver.

We have broken the shackles of outdated and conventional styles of working and offer our lawyers a technology powered flexible work environment.

Jerome Merchant + Partners was founded, in early 2013, over a handshake between our founding partners. We have come a long way since and achieved exceptional results, and through these years we have remained committed to our one single objective – solving our clients’ most important problems.

Vishnu Jerome, Shameek Ray, Murtaza Somjee, and Sameer Sibal, came together to start a humble but impassioned practice of law, in Nariman Point, Mumbai. Kalpana Merchant joined us in 2015 and also lent her name to the firm letterhead.

Our years have been marked by the growth of our client base and significant addition to the practices we offered to our clients, including venture capital, restructuring, real estate, and dispute resolution, as well as the opening of offices in Singapore.
