Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas (CAM) Delhi partner Piyush Mishra, who had been hired in 2015 from Luthra & Luthra, has resigned the firm and is understood to in advanced talks to be joining AZB & Partners.

Following the high-profile move of Ashwath Rao and his team from CAM to AZB in June 2016 and Percy Billimoria from AZB to CAM, there have been a number of other moves between the two firms.

AZB partner Rishi Gautam moved to CAM in February of this year.

CAM senior consultant Jasmin Kharkhanis had rejoined AZB in October 2016, while CAM corporate partner designate Prerak Ved had moved to AZB in August 2016.
