Ex-AZB’s Madhurima Mukherjee signs up as JSA consultant & to co-head IDIA

Senior capital markets lawyer Madhurima Mukherjee, who had left AZB & Partners in April, has enlisted with J Sagar Associates (JSA) as an independent senior consultant, we understand from several sources.

We have learned that she will focus on expanding JSA’s capital markets practice and team, as well as be involved in training, though it will be a part-time role and she has set up an independent legal consultancy.

We have reached out to Mukherjee and JSA for comment and will update the story when we hear from them.

Update 30 June 2020: According to JSA’s release from the co-managing partners Amit Kapur and Vivek Chandy, she “has agreed to act as a senior consultant - capital markets to augment and further strengthen the firm’s capital markets team”. They added: “With her years of experience and reputation, we hope to show our continued commitment to our clients to bolster our national capital markets practice. We wish Madhurima a long and mutually beneficial association with JSA.”

She has also joined Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access (IDIA) as chief mentor in a part-time role, effectively co-heading IDIA alongside trustee (who is also incidentally a co-founder of legal news website Bar & Bench) Shishira Rudrappa.

IDIA, which works to assist in providing students from non-traditional law backgrounds break into the law schools, said in a statement: “We are excited to announce that Madhurima Mukherjee will be supporting us as chief mentor. Madhurima has been closely involved with IDIA and worked alongside our Founder, (late) Prof. (Dr.) Shamnad Basheer.

“She will use her knowledge and experience to help our trustees and team to structure IDIA’s projects and vision. Madhurima will undertake this role alongside her independent legal practice and other philanthropic initiatives.”

This is effectively her second innings at IDIA, having also spent around a year working with IDIA part-time between 2013 and 2014, after she had taken a career break following her time heading the capital markets practice at Luthra & Luthra (as L&L Partners was then known) and before joining AZB in August 2014.
