Trilegal continues expanding equity with CAM’s Joseph Jimmy

The all-equity partnership of Trilegal has elected to hire Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas partner Joseph Jimmy as a partner in banking and finance in Mumbai, growing its partnership to 54.

He will be joining in early 2020, according to a Trilegal press release (presumably subject to CAM and other large firms’ variable notice periods).

Jimmy had been promoted to partner at Amarchand Mangaldas, as it then was, in 2013.

Before joining Amarchand in 2009, he had worked at Simmons & Simmons in London for two years, preceded by a 2004 to 2006 stint at ICICI Bank in Mumbai.

After graduating from ILS Pune in 2002 he had worked at Juris Corp for a year.

Trilegal partner Ameya Khandge commented in the release: “Joseph’s experience will bolster the firm’s strong banking and finance practice and will allow us to focus on specific market opportunities across asset financing; structured finance; as well as, restructuring and insolvency.”

His main focus is on asset and structured finance, as well as debt capital markets and debt restructuring.

He has worked with private sector banks, foreign banks and domestic NBFCs.

We have reached out to CAM for comment.

Update 14:23: CAM’s managing partner Cyril Shroff commented: “We wish him the best.”

Despite having traditionally been more conservative in taking on laterals, Trilegal has in recent months hired three partners.

Jimmy is the second partner to join from CAM, following the defection of Ravindra Bandhakavi and Vishwanath Pratap Singh: white collar partner Kunal Gupta had joined Trilegal in September.

In June, partner Harsh Maggon from AZB & Partners had joined in Mumbai.
