Following competition partner Amitabh Kumar’s retirement, which we had reported less than two weeks ago, Gurgaon-based partner Upendra Nath Sharma has been elected into the firm’s executive committee (excom), as one of five partners.

This is his second stint on the firm’s excom, having also been part of it before the previous rotation, when Jyoti Sagar and Berjis Desai were still running the firm.

The excom had a minimum of quarterly meetings, though it was likely to meet and correspond much more frequently, as and when any issues arose, Sharma said about the input required from partner members. “It requires a lot of time and commitment, which we all have principally agreed,” he said. “You have to take out time to do justice to what you have undertaken to do.”

The term of this excom will run until 31 March 2022, and also includes the two joint managing partners Amit Kapur and Vivek Chandy, as well as former co-managing partner Dina Wadia and partner Amar Gupta.

“We are evolving and I’m looking forward to it,” Sharma added about the excom. “It’s becoming more decisive, more independent and it’s a very cohesive thing we have in the whole firm.”

His appointment was first reported in the Business Standard.
