Cyril Amarchand Hyderabad head Rahul Sarella exits

Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas Hyderabad partner and office head Rahul Sarella has resigned, according to three authoritative sources.

We could not authoritatively confirm his next move at the time of publication.

Managing partner Cyril Shroff commented: "He is indeed moving on. It is a friendly exit. We as a firm are re-focusing our practice in Hyderabad to infrastructure and the opportunities arising from the bifurcation of the State. Harita Rao, our projects partner will be leading the office for now. As above, we are intending to refocus and grow the office."

"We understand that Rahul is currently intending to run his own firm but his plans are yet shaping up. Depending upon how they do, we intend to use him for our litigation work. Rahul is and will continue to be a friend of the firm."

Sarella was not reachable for comment on his mobile phone today.

The NLSIU Bangalore graduate and Chevening Scholar began his career at Wadia Ghandy in Mumbai, then moved to KSB Partners, became a partner at Tatva Legal in Hyderabad for a year and then joined what-was-then Amarchand Mangaldas in July 2013.
