Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas (SAM) Bangalore founding partner Karthik Mahalingam is to leave the firm on 30 April.

We understand that he will be joining MIT Sloan School of Management, in Boston, for its one-year Masters of Business Administration (MBA).

Mahalingam had joined SAM in April 2016 to set up its Bangalore office from semi-philanthropic investment fund Omidyar Network India, where he was general counsel (GC).

He had joined as Bangalore office head and national head of the firm’s venture capital practice.

He was not reachable for comment, and we have also reached out to SAM management, who did not respond by the time of publication.

Update 13 April 2018, 10:19: SAM co-managing partner Pallavi Shroff commented: “We wish him all the very best in life.”

SAM had ramped up in Bangalore in 2017 with the hire of two corporate and venture capital (VC) partners respectively - Roshan Thomas and Siddharth Nair - who had moved with much of the rest of BMR Legal to SAM.
