Gamechanger: Cyril Amarchand gets a seasoned Delhi & lit head with Percy Billimoria from AZB

Billimoria: Fresh but seasoned blood for CAM Delhi
Billimoria: Fresh but seasoned blood for CAM Delhi

Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas will hire senior AZB & Partners Delhi partner Percival (Percy) Billimoria to head up its Delhi office and national litigation practice, according to three authoritative sources.

It is understood that he will also be part of Cyril Amarchand’s management committee.

Billimoria specialises in litigation, with a particular focus on commercial disputes, competition law and corporate disputes.

He is also chair of AZB’s Delhi litigation practice.

Billimoria had joined the law firm of Ajay Bahl in 2000 (before it merged with the Chambers of Bahram Vakil and Zia Mody in Mumbai) as a partner, having practiced independently and at Arthur Andersen & Co as a chartered accountant.

We have reached out to Billimoria, Cyril Amarchand managing partner Cyril Shroff, and AZB Delhi managing partner Ajay Bahl for comment.

Update 22:15: Ajay Bahl commented: “We wish Percy the best.”

His hire, which has not yet been announced internally at AZB, follows the highly likely upcoming move of Cyril Amarchand national competition head Nisha Kaur Uberoi to AZB in Mumbai, and the departure of three Cyril Amarchand Delhi litigation partners – Neeraj Sharma, Alok Tiwari and Seshagiri Vadlamani - earlier this month.
