Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas (CAM) is understood to be hiring AZB & Partners corporate partner Rishi Gautam, who had joined the firm in 2014 from Clifford Chance and a short stint at Amazon, as first reported by Bar & Bench.

Although nothing has been signed yet between Gautam and CAM, it is understood that he is likely to be joining in the coming months, subject to the length of his notice period.
