PXV founder, Khaitan associate partner Deepto Roy to join (Shardul) Amarchand

Khaitan & Co associate partner Deepto Roy will join the firm to be started by Amarchand Mangaldas Delhi partner Shardul Shroff in Mumbai.

According to four authoritative sources Roy has given his notice at Khaitan and is expected to join Shroff’s expecteded Mumbai operations soon.

He did not respond to a call seeking comment, while Rabindra Jhunjhunwala also did not respond to a message seeking comment.

We have reached out to Shardul Shroff for comment.

Roy joined Khaitan in August 2014 with two of his fellow co-founding partners of PXV Law Partners - Mohit Abraham and GT Thomas Phillippe - and eight associates.

Roy, who graduated in 2005, started PXV Law Partners with fellow NUJS Kolkata graduates Rohit Das, Pingal Khan, Philippe and Abraham in 2011.

He had begun his career at Amarchand Mangaldas Mumbai in 2005.

Roy will be the fourth Khaitan partner and third associate partner to have been snared by Shardul Shroff and his brother and current-co-managing partner Cyril in the break-up battle of Amarchand.
