JSA funds partner Jay Gandhi & team to join Chudasama as SAM-Bombay missing puzzle piece


J Sagar Associates (JSA) funds formation partner Jay Gandhi and his team of five associates will join Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas (SAM) in Mumbai under former JSA senior partner and SAM Mumbai Akshay Chudasama.

Gandhi specialises in investment funds, private equity placements and M&A.

The University of Bombay LLB graduate also holds a bachelor of commerce and a 2002-chartered accountancy (CA) qualification.

We have reached out to Gandhi for comment.

Chudasama commented: “[We’re] really happy to have him on board, he is a funds lawyers and used to run the funds formation practice at JSA. It was a piece that was missing here at SAM, and he's coming on board with his team.”

“It’s a very important piece of the puzzle to make sure that we're full service and (serving our clients),” he added.

JSA managing partner Berjis Desai commented: “Jay is a very fine lawyer and we wish him luck in his career move.”

“It's been fantastic, very very exhilerating. It's been busy but as you know we've hit the ground running. It's fun and games,” Chudasama commented on the experience of setting up the office. “There's a bit of everything going on, the firm is relatively busy. It's early days yet, but let me put it this way: we have much more work than I had originally expected or anticipated in such a short period of time - it's been six weeks.”
