PDS Legal opens Bangalore office spearheaded by AZB partner Chetan Nagendra (NLS ‘00)

It is the firm’s third office, beside Delhi and Mumbai, and will focus on corporate/PE/VC work

Chetan Nagendra opens Bangalore front for PDS

Chetan Nagendra, former Bangalore partner of AZB & Partners, has joined Big 4 consultancy E&Y best friend law firm PDS Legal as a partner, to open up its Bangalore office, according to sources with knowledge of the move.

He specialises in corporate work and VC/PE work, and would complement the firm’s work in Mumbai and Delhi.

It is understood he is joining with a small team of associates.

Nagendra had left AZB in November 2018, after three years at the firm, following one year of running the Law Offices of Chetan Nagendra, in association with Themis Associates.

Before that, the 2000 NLSIU Bangalore graduate was associate general counsel at Facebook, between 2012 and 2013, and he had also worked as head of the India practice at UK law firm Harney Westwood & Riegels.

Prior to that, he had also been an associate at what-was-then Amarchand Mangaldas, and regional counsel at liquor company Diageo’s India office.

He is qualified to practice in India, England & Wales, New York and in the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

We have reached out to Nagendra, PDS and AZB for comment.
