Priya Mehra to lift off from IndiGo

General counsel (GC) of InterGlobe Aviation-operated airline IndiGo, Priya Mehra, has resigned and is set to leave the airline by early 2020, according to authoritative market sources.

We have not been able to confirm if she has signed on for a job at another company or law firm yet.

She has not responded to requests seeking comment at the time of going to press.

IndiGo has a legal team of around 30 lawyers, with associate general counsel Bharat Vansh Bahadur still currently remaining; he had joined the company with Mehra in 2016, with her as GC in Gurgaon.

Immediately before, she had been at the Singapore office of Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, where she was a counsel.

She is a 2002 Delhi University (DU) law graduate (also with a 1999 BA in Political Science from DU) had worked at AZB & Partners for five years before moving to Singapore in 2007.

There Mehra first worked with Jones Day and a year later joined Gibson Dunn, as part of the team move to Gibson Dunn of partner Jai Pathak.

Besides India, she is also qualified to practice law in England & Wales.

She specialises in M&A, joint ventures, private equity, government privatisations, capital markets and general corporate advice, according to her profile on IndiGo’s website.

IndiGo has hit a bit of a rough patch with the tussle between promoters Rakesh Gangwal and Rahul Bhatia still simmering away without permanent resolution, resulting in a raft of senior executive exits, such as its CFO in August.
