Tax head Aseem Chawla quits Amarchand

Aseem Chawla: Leaves Amarchand behind
Aseem Chawla: Leaves Amarchand behind
Exclusive: Amarchand Mangaldas Delhi partner and head of tax Aseem Chawla has resigned, as the firm aims to refill the gap in its ranks.

Amarchand Delhi managing partner Shardul Shroff confirmed that Chawla would leave in the second week of July.

“We wish him well… Aseem has been an asset to the firm,” he said.

“We are searching for substitutes.”

Chawla qualified as a lawyer in 1998 from the University of Delhi and is also a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India.

According to several sources, Chawla may join a chartered accountancy firm.

Chawla declined to comment on his plans and his departure when contacted.

Amarchand plans to double in size to 1,000 lawyers and 100 partners by 2017, under a new firm strategy.

In 2010 chartered accountant and tax lawyer DD Nageswar Rao had joined Amarchand Delhi as a partner in the tax team, that included Chawla and then principal consultant (designate) Gagan Kumar. [Update: Legally India has confirmed that Rao is not with Amarchand anymore]
