AZB & Partners Mumbai lateral partner and compliance and investigation practice head Ajay Upadhyay has moved to KPMG as a partner in its forensic practice, two years after having joined from E&Y.

He confirmed his joining, and commented: “I had a very fantastic time with the AZB team and gained immense learning experience with the firm, especially Zia.”

“All the senior partners of firm, be it Ajay B, Bahram, Ashwath Rau, Rajendra Barot, Darshika, Sai B, Ashwin, Nohid, Alka or Shameek, they all have been really supportive during my two and half year tenure,” he added. “The compliance and investigation practice at AZB continues to grow and the replacement has been identified to handle the ever-growing practice. I wish all the very best to the AZB team.”
