Mohit Saraf’s position from the L&L partners was terminated earlier; for which he moved to the High Court seeking an injunction.
Today the Delhi High Court stayed the termination from L&L Partners until the completion of the Arbitration Proceeding between the conflicting parties.
Earlier Court suggested the party to go for mediation. However the same failed and they found their way back to the Court.
Mr Saraf earlier contended that, his removal from the firm was malicious. No prior notice was given (90 days) before terminating him.
