Cyril Amarchand partner Nisha Kaur Uberoi incredibly close to joining AZB Mumbai

Uberoi: Very likely to be heading Zia-way
Uberoi: Very likely to be heading Zia-way

Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas partner and competition head Nisha Kaur Uberoi is close to joining AZB & Partners in Mumbai.

Legally India understands from three sources that she has not yet resigned or made any formal announcements within Cyril Amarchand.

However, it is understood according to two sources that her move to AZB is as good as a done deal.

Bar & Bench first reported earlier today that Uberoi had resigned from Cyril Amarchand to join AZB.

Strong rumours around Uberoi leaving have been swirling in the market for months now.

Her move would follow Ashwath Rau, who will be joining AZB with three partners foreseeably by next month.

We have reached out to Uberoi, Cyril Amarchand managing partner Cyril Shroff, AZB managing partner Zia Mody, and Rau for comment but have received no responses or comment.

Update: Cyril Amarchand, meanwhile, has poached senior AZB Delhi litigation and contentious competition partner Percy Billimoria.
