Chawla & Co: Destination unknown
Exclusive: Senior Amarchand Mangaldas Delhi equity partner Harry Chawla, who also co-heads the Delhi corporate practice and is one of four non-family partners on the firm’s national management committee, is understood to have resigned from the firm.

According to several sources, Chawla tendered his resignation earlier this week. Delhi principal associate Niti Paul, who is married to Chawla, is understood to have resigned earlier in November.

After graduating in 1990 from Kurukshetra University, Chawla had been at Kochhar & Co before joining Luthra & Luthra in 1995.

He left Luthra in 2000, poaching several associates, to start his own firm Chawla & Co. Paul joined the firm in 2001 from an in-house role at Rolls Royce India.

Both joined Amarchand in October 2008.

Chawla, alongside Delhi partner Gunjan Shah and Mumbai partners SH Bhojani and L Viswanathan, is currently one of four non-Shroff family member partners on the firm’s management committee, which also includes Cyril Shroff, Shardul Shroff and Barathi Shroff, as well as two members who are not part of the firm.

He also co-heads the corporate practice in Delhi with Shah.

Legally India could not confirm Chawla’s future plans at the time of going to press.

He did not return any calls or emails for comment and Paul was also not reachable.

An Amarchand Delhi spokesperson declined to comment on his departure.
