Zubin Mehta to join SAM from Veritas

Veritas Legal finance partner Zubin Mehta has joined Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas (SAM) in Mumbai to grow its Mumbai banking and finance team to four, with a total headcount of 25 fee-earners.

According to authoritative sources, Mehta will be joining later this month reporting to partner Veena Sivaramakrishnan, with partner Sapan Gupta heading up SAM’s banking and finance.

We have reached out to Gupta and Mehta for comment.

Mehta had moved to Veritas in 2017 from AZB & Partners, where he was senior associate.

He is a 2005 ILS Pune graduate, who had been at AZB since 2007, and specialises in finance and insolvency.

It is understood that Mehta would be the first partner to leave Veritas, which was founded in 2014. Managing partner Abhijit Joshi commented: “We wish him all the very best.”

Veritas Legal will have 6 partners after his departure.

Update 8 November 2019: SAM has released a presser, in which managing partner Akshay Chudasama said: “With his high quality and diverse experience, Zubin’s experience will add significant value to our banking & finance practice.”

Managing partner Pallavi Shroff added: “His addition to the team further strengthens our robust banking & finance practice that is highly regarded by our clients.”

Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas will have 117 partners with his addition.
