Wadia Ghandy shuts South India operations as Chennai partner Shona Malvi goes independent

Wadia Ghandy has shut its office in Chennai as the firm’s partner heading the Chennai practice, Shona Malvi, is going independent.

The four non-partner level lawyers who comprised the firm’s team in Chennai had already left to head their separate ways and Malvi was the last one to leave.

The firm opened up in Chennai in 2007 because Malvi, who was then a partner in its Mumbai office, had relocated to Chennai.

Malvi joined Wadia Ghandy in 2001. She was not reachable for comment at the time of going to press but an authoritative source within the firm confirmed her exit.

Wadia co-managing parter Dhawal Mehta confirmed the development but declined to comment further.

Wadia had also shut down its Singapore office in November 2014. The firm now has offices in Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Pune and Delhi, with the Delhi office focussing on litigation. An authoritative source within the firm said that the firm will only keep these existing offices and not expand to any other cities.

Note: A previous version of the story incorrectly stated that Wadia Ghandy now only has offices in Mumbai and Delhi. This has been now corrected to state that the firm has offices in Ahmedabad and Pune also, but does not plan to expand any further than these offices.
