Nagendra: AZB delights

Themis Associates partner Chetan Nagendra, who specialises in corporate and venture capital (VC) work, will join AZB & Partners in Bangalore.

AZB Mumbai managing partner Zia Mody commented: “We are delighted to have Chetan join our Bangalore office. He brings with him a wealth of experience which will further add to our capability in the venture capital space.”

The 2000 NLSIU Bangalore graduate is a qualified lawyer in India, England & Wales, the Eastern Carribean Supreme Court of the British Virgin Islands and of New York State.

He was London-based head of offshore firm Harney Westwood & Riegels between 2008 and 2011, associate general counsel for Asia Pacific of Facebook between 2012 and 2013, and a partner at Themis Associates in 2014 after merging his practice – the Law Offices of Chetan Nagendra – with the VC, tax, compliance and finance boutique that is part of the Themis Group.

We have reached out to Nagendra and Themis for comment.
