Shardul Amarchand in talks with JSA senior Mumbai partner Akshay Chudasama, nothing signed yet

Chudasama: Talking
Chudasama: Talking

Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas is in advanced discussions with senior J Sagar Associates (JSA) Mumbai partner Akshay Chudasama to head its Mumbai office but nothing concrete has been signed or agreed between the parties according to several authoritative sources.

It is understood that no internal announcement has been made within JSA and that discussions between Shardul Amarchand and Chudasama are ongoing.

Chudasama declined to comment when contacted.

Bar & Bench has first reported several minutes ago that that “SAM & Co bags JSA biggie: Akshay Chudasama + Team” and that Chudasama was “all set to join Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas in Mumbai, according to authoritative sources”.

Legally India authoritatively understands that this is incorrect as talks are still ongoing and not finalised, though they may end up being successful.

We have reached out to JSA for comment.

Chudasama has been a partner at JSA since 2005, having joined from AZB & Partners where he was a partner from 2002.

He was the managing partner of Lex Inde in Mumbai from 1994 until 2002 and holds an undergraduate in economics from the University of Bombay and a 1994 LLB from the London School of Economics.
