Shardul Amarchand (Chudasama) poaches Khaitan partner Abhay Sharma

Khaitan & Co Mumbai associate partner Abhay Sharma will join Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas in Mumbai, reported Bar & Bench.

Mumbai managing partner Akshay Chudasama told Legally India that he welcomed him on board and he would be an asset to the firm, complimenting the firm’s transaction practice.

Sharma was promoted to associate partner level earlier this year at Khaitan in a round of 18 salaried partner and 5 equity partner promotions.

He had joined Khaitan in 2013 from Nishith Desai Associates (NDA) where he had started his career, interrupted by stints at Dua Associates and BMR Advisors. He is a graduate of NLIU Bhopal.

We have reached out to Khaitan & Co for comment.

Update: Khaitan partner Rabindra Jhunjhunwala commented: “Great guy and going on best of terms. We will always wish him the best in his new role.”
