Shardul Amarchand corp Mumbai push: Delhi’s Raghubir Menon moves to Mumbai as post-Shuva M&A head, with partners Natashaa Shroff, Ekta Gupta

After national M&A head Shuva Mandal is set to join Tata Sons as group general counsel (GC) tomorrow (15 July), Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas has appointed partner Raghubir Menon into the regional M&A head role.

Menon will be relocating to Mumbai from the firm’s Delhi office.

He had joined the partnership at erstwhile Amarchand Mangaldas in 2011 from White & Case Singapore, where he was an associate since 2006.

He had started his career at Amarchand in 2001 after graduating from NLSIU Bangalore.

Correction: Menon is being appointed as regional M&A head, not national M&A head.

Update 17:56: According to a press release from the firm, Delhi partners Natashaa Shroff and Ekta Gupta will also be relocating to Mumbai with a team of associates.

Executive chairman Shardul Shroff said in the statement: “Raghubir is a stellar lawyer with an impeccable reputation in the industry. Along with Natashaa and Ekta, the team will drive the M&A and private equity practice in Mumbai, which is an important market for the firm.”

A total of 44 out of the firm’s 91 partners were now in the general corporate practice, he said, with 480 lawyers now at the firm in total.

Mumbai managing partner Akshay Chudasama added: “This move will further strengthen our relationship with our clients in Mumbai and bolster our corporate M&A and private equity practice. Raghubir is known for his legal acumen and is a thought leader in his practice area.”
