Shardul Amarchand scoops AZB's Debashree Dutta as Mumbai banking partner

AZB & Partners senior associate Debashree Dutta will join Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas’ (SAM) Mumbai office as a partner, focusing on banking, Legally India has reliably learned.

Dutta began her career at ICICI Bank’s in-house team in 2007 after graduating from ILS Pune. She completed an MSc in law and finance from Oxford University’s Said Business School in 2010, after which she joined AZB’s finance teams.

SAM Mumbai managing partner Akshay Chudasama was not reachable for comment at the time of going to press.

We have reached out to AZB and Dutta for comment. UPDATE: AZB's Zia Mody commented in an email: "We wish Debashree all the very best. We were very happy to have her with us. We are sure she will shine in her new role."

Chudasama, who was a senior partner at J Sagar Associates (JSA) and a partner at AZB before joining SAM, had landed a coup in poaching AZB corporate partner Shuva Mandal late last year.

SAM’s Mumbai office was around 80 lawyers strong last month, with space enough to expand to 140 in its more than Rs 50 lakh rent Nariman Point office space.
