Amarchand 2012-Mumbai partners Choudhary, Murthy to leave for USA & MBA

Amarchand Mangaldas Mumbai corporate partners Amita Choudhary and Aysswarya Murthy are set to leave the firm.

Choudhary will leave for the US next month to pursue an MBA degree from Stanford University, while Murthy is set to move to the US by April 2014 after getting married.

Amarchand Mumbai partner Vandana Shroff confirmed the upcoming departures and commented: “Amita and Aysswarya are home grown products. They have worked nowhere else since they joined in a PPO [pre-placement offer] from Nalsar [Hyderabad], and have had no other internships. They have been very nice partners, very good mentors and have had very good client feedback.”

“[Murthy] is moving for a good reason and we’re going to miss her,” Shroff added, and noted that Choudhary would hopefully rejoin the firm if she ever returned to India.

It is not yet decided which partners will handle Murthy’s and Choudhary’s mandates. Shroff said: “Hopefully their own teams will throw someone up.” Choudhary is currently working from the firm’s Bangalore office for one month.

Murthy and Choudhary, who joined the firm in 2005, made partners in May 2012.

Choudhary specialises in public M&A, corporate restructuring and joint ventures and Murthy works primarily in the financial services sector on corporate and M&A.

Choudhary was not reachable for comment while Murthy declined to comment when contacted by Legally India yesterday.
