Sanjeet Mailk, who had joined the Hong Kong office of Milbank Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP two years back, has resigned to move back to India.
Sanjeet plans to pursue some opportunities in financing of renewable power projects that serve rural off-grid communities in North India.
Speaking to Bar & Bench, Sanjeet said, “It an interesting opportunity to work on financing of renewable projects for rural community and I would like to pursue it. If we are able to do this on a large scale, this will have some interesting implications for rural India. It is still in its nascent stage and it is hard to predict how it will go."
"Also, It remains to be seen whether I will do this with one of the players that is already active in the market or set something on my own”, said Sanjeet.
Sanjeet had joined Milbank as an Of Counsel to enhance its India and Asian M&A practices. Prior to joining Milbank, he was working as an Associate at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP.
Glenn S. Gerstell, Head of Milibank’s India Practice said, "We are sorry to see Sanjeet leave, after more than two fruitful years at Milbank, to return home to India to pursue some exciting opportunities in the financing of rural power projects. Milbank will continue its strong practice in India, focusing on assisting top-tier clients with their largest and most complex cross-border transactions and the resolution of disputes."
At Milbank, Sanjeet handled a variety of cross-border corporate and financing transactions for Asian clients. His practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, private equity and restructuring transactions.
Sanjeet is a graduate of Cornell Law School and he received an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Waterloo (Canada).
