Ganesh Rao (r) and Aditya Jha to move to Trilegal from AZB

Funds partners Ganesh Rao and Aditya Jha from AZB & Partners are understood to be heading to Trilegal, though we understand that the partnership vote to admit them into Trilegal has not yet completed.

Both Rao and Jha had joined AZB from Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas in the 2016 mass-move led by equity partner Ashwath Rau.

We have reached out to Trilegal for comment.

AZB confirmed their leaving, and commented: “We wish them all the very best. And thank them for their contribution to AZB.

“The AZB Funds practice continues to be co headed by our senior partners Sai Krishna Bharathan and Ashwath Rau, along with our partner Pallabi Ghosal.”

Rao had been promoted to CAM’s partnership in 2015, and then joined AZB as a partner, while Jha had been promoted to the AZB partnership last year.

Jha is a 2008 NLSIU Bangalore graduate, who had begun his career at SJ Berwin in London, before moving to Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas in 2012.

Last year, AZB (and former CAM) competition head and partner Nisha Kaur Uberoi had also moved from AZB to Trilegal.
