Vanditta Malhotra Hegde quits ENIL to turn legal eagle

Vanditta Malhotra Hegde, Senior Vice President and Legal Head of Entertainment Network (India) Limited (Radio Mirchi) is moving out of Times Group. She is joining hands with Singh & Singh Law Firm LLP, founded by Prathiba Singh and Maninder Singh, a reputed Intellectual Property Rights law firm in the country, to set up ‘Singh & Singh, Malhotra & Hegde’ in Mumbai.

Malhotra Hegde has been with Radio Mirchi for the last one decade and has been credited for the successful legal strategies of Radio Mirchi in the highly litigious areas of copyright licensing and royalties. She is a well-known legal name in the media and entertainment industry and is in the forefront of advocating progressive copyright laws and taking up other industry issues.

Speaking on the move, Malhotra Hegde said, “These are exciting times and the firm would strive to provide cutting edge legal advisory to media & entertainment, telecom, internet, pharmaceutical and other businesses in the areas of Intellectual Property Rights, transaction, litigation, dispute resolution and strategic decision making. Singh & Singh, Malhotra & Hegde would eventually become a full service law firm.”

Speaking about her feelings on becoming an entrepreneur, she said, “The journey ahead looks very exciting. I have a great mentor in Ms Prathiba Singh, one of the acknowledged thought leaders in the Indian IP arena. There is a lot of demand for quality, solution oriented legal advisory and as I have been an in-house counsel myself, having seen the business needs from closest quarters, I am confident that we will be able to provide great value to our clients. Radio Mirchi is our first client and it could not have begun better.”

Malhotra Hegde began her career in law practice with one of India’s oldest law firms Mulla & Mulla, Craigie, Blunt & Caroe, Solicitors and Advocates. She joined Times Group in 2004 and held different responsibilities in legal function, providing legal advice to radio, internet, event management, filmed entertainment and out of home businesses, before being elevated to Head of Legal of Radio Mirchi in 2007.
