Cyril Amarchand Delhi head Percy Billimoria to become independent counsel

As long anticipated, Percy to become independent
As long anticipated, Percy to become independent

It’s been a long time coming, with rumours swirling for months now, but Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas (CAM) partner and Delhi head Percy Billimoria has given notice last month and is set to start up an independent counsel practice, we have reliably learned.

He is likely to become independent and start a Delhi-based barristers’ chambers-style practice by the beginning of August, but has been on vacation the whole of this month.

It is understood that in late May, CAM discussed the terms of Billimoria’s exit.

We have reached out to Billimoria for comment.

Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas managing partner Cyril Shroff declined to comment.

He had joined CAM in 2016, at the height of the CAM-SAM-AZB wars, from AZB & Partners Delhi.

While Billimoria’s joining had steadied the ship in Delhi, CAM can expect reinforcements in Delhi with long-time Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas corporate partner Akila Agrawal due to join at the latest by August.

CAM’s Delhi office currently has around 164 fee-earners and 32 partners.
