Upadhyay kicks-off AZB Mumbai vertical
Upadhyay kicks-off AZB Mumbai vertical

Ernst & Young (EY) director of fraud investigation and dispute services Ajay Upadhyay will joined AZB & Partners in Delhi Mumbai in August with his team of five, according to Bar & Bench.

Correction: Upadhyay is joining AZB Mumbai, not Delhi as reported earlier.

He will be head of compliance and investigation at the firm and told Bar & Bench: “For us basically, it will be a joint approach where the law firm will lead the investigation (since they are capable of giving strategic legal advice) and the audit firms/forensic firms will support them. The firm will focus on investigations under FCPA, UK Bribery Act and Prevention of Corruption Act and also various other reporting obligations to authorities.”

AZB Delhi managing partner Ajay Bahl confirmed his joining to Legally India.

Upadhyay joined AZB in August after five years at EY, and five years at KPMG until 2010, according to his Linked-in profile.

He is a qualified chartered accountant and Bachelor of Commerce graduate from the University of Pune.
