Jerome: Looking for office space outside Express Towers?
Exclusive: AZB & Partners Mumbai partner Vishnu Jerome is intending to set up a new law firm after his AZB resignation takes effect from the end of this month.

According to a number of authoritative sources close to Jerome, he has been pursuing serious plans to set up a new law firm, although Legally India could not confirm further details and the identities of future co-partners, if any.

It is understood that Jerome handed in his notice to resign in March 2011 and will leave AZB after 30 June.

After he graduated from NLSIU Bangalore in 2002 he joined Bangalore firm Poovayya & Co for two years.

In 2004 he began his career at AZB in Mumbai and was elevated to partnership in 2008, according to his profile on business networking site LinkedIn. Jerome specialises in banking finance, general M&A and capital markets work.

One Mumbai partner at rival firm said that Jerome was a very good and practical lawyer and it was a “pleasure to work across the table from him”. More importantly, added the partner, he was a very good human being who would be successful wherever he was.

Jerome has repeatedly declined to comment since late in March when Legally India first contacted him.

Senior AZB Mumbai partners declined to comment when contacted.
