Seth Dua co-founder Atul Dua to leave KPMG best-friend Advaita after one-and-a-half years

Atul Dua departure from Advaita imminent
Atul Dua departure from Advaita imminent

Seth Dua & Associates co-founder Atul Dua, who in 2017 became partner at Advaita Legal - the best-friend law firm of Big 4 consultancy KPMG - is set to leave the firm, we have learned from authoritative sources.

While Dua is still a partner at Advaita, we understand that he is set to leave the firm soon.

When contacted, Dua confirmed that he was still a partner at Advaita but declined to comment further.

Dua had joined Advaita in October 2017 with his team of 20 lawyers. Seth Dua was dissolved a short while after the death of his co-founding partner Sunil Seth in February 2017 following a road accident, leading to mediation between Dua and Seth’s family over the firm’s assets.

Dua had co-founded Seth Dua in 1998.

We could not confirm at the time of publication what Dua’s next move would be, and whether his team members would leave with him or whether they would stay behind at Advaita.

Advaita declined to comment.

The firm’s co-founding partner Sujit Ghosh had left in July 2018 to become an arguing counsel.

After Dua’s departure, Advaita will have three partners in three verticals: partner Shailendra Singh heads up the infrastructure practice, partner Sudipta Bhattacharjee heads up customs and indirect tax, while partner Kamal Sawhney (who had joined in 2016) heads up the direct tax practice.
