Former Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas Mumbai partner Vedant Shukla has joined Ultratech Cement as general manager (GM) legal for global M&A.

He is understood to have just joined this week, heading up global corporate transactions at the cement giant.

Shukla will be reporting to UltraTech Cement chief legal officer Sujeet Jain, who had joined in June 2019 from Viacom18.

Shukla is a 2008 HNLU Raipur graduate, who had worked at Nishith Desai Associates, the Future Group, Desai & Diwanji and IDFC Alternatives, before joining CAM in 2018 as a partner into its funds team.

He had left CAM in January 2019.

Ultratech had last year bought BK Birla’s cement business for $1.2bn, in one of the largest deals of the year. Khaitan & Co had acted for Ultratech on corporate issues, and Trilegal on competition law aspects.
