J Sagar Associates (JSA) Delhi projects equity partners Sumanto Basu and Pallavi Bedi will be leaving the firm by 31 March 2017.
Basu is chair of JSA’s projects practice and specialises on energy-related work.
Bedi had returned to JSA in 2012 from Mayer Brown in London, where she had been a senior associate at the time. Her focus is also on projects and oil and gas work.
A statement from the co-managing partners Shivpriya Nanda and Dina Wadia, and senior partner Berjis Desai noted:
Sumanto and Pallavi have each been valued members of the firm since 2007 and 2011 respectively and we wish them every success in the future.
Basu declined to comment when contacted yesterday.
Both work together in the same practice, and it is understood that their next move - whether they will go independent or join another firm - is not yet finalised.
Delhi projects partner Amit Kapur was elected to succeed Berjis Desai as senior partner on 1 April.
