Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas partner and national competition head Nisha Kaur Uberoi handed in her resignation yesterday and is set to join AZB & Partners in the coming months, confirmed two sources with knowledge of the development.

It is understood that on Friday Uberoi was in the final stages of negotiating her Cyril Amarchand exit, as reported by Legally India at the time.

We have reached out to Uberoi, Cyril Amarchand managing partner Cyril Shroff, and AZB Mumbai managing partner Zia Mody for comment.

Earlier this month Uberoi was promoted to national head of the competition practice.

Her departure follows that of corporate rainmaker Ashwath Rau and non-equity partners Ganesh Rao, Dhruv Singhal and Anu Tiwari, who will join AZB after the expiry of their notice periods.

Uberoi began her career at what-was-then Amarchand Mangaldas in 2002 after graduating from NLSIU Bangalore. In 2005 after an LLM at the National University of Singapore, she joined Rajah & Tann in Singapore for two years, followed by Ashurst where she left as a senior associate in 2010.

In 2012 she was promoted to Amarchand's partnership.
