SAM signs up Chilana tax-replacement: EY, ex-law-firm-start-up lawyer Rajat Bose

EY’s Rajat Bose fills SAM’s indirect tax gap
EY’s Rajat Bose fills SAM’s indirect tax gap

Following the departure of Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas (SAM) Delhi tax and GST partner Sandeep Chilana for independent practice, which we had reported in December 2018, SAM has now lined up his long-anticipated replacement: EY executive director of indirect tax Rajat Bose.

He has joined as a partner in Delhi.

Bose specialises in indirect tax, GST, VAT, customs and international trade.

He had re-joined EY in 2015, after two-odd years outside the Big 4 consultancy as co-founding partner of Reina Law in 2012.

The 2006 ILS Pune law graduate had begun his career at Zeus Law Associates, following by KPMG in 2007 and his first stint at EY in 2009.

We have reached out to SAM and Bose for comment.

Chilana had planned his exit from SAM for several months, with his handover from SAM to independent practice having been staggered up to January 2019.

His addition as partner takes the total size of Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas to 110.

Update 14:37: According to a SAM press release, managing partner Pallavi Shroff said: “The implementation of GST has created both opportunities and challenges for our clients and with a new partner on board we will be in a stronger position to help clients navigate complex tax and regulatory landscape.”
