AZB & Partners 2016-promoted partner Sugandha Asthana has resigned and is set to join Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas.
Earlier this year she had acted on US-listed Arrow Electronics’ purchase of eInfochips for $300m, with partner Darshika Kothari.
The 2007 SLS Pune graduate had joined AZB in 2014 as a senior associate and was promoted two years later.
She had begun her career in-house at ICICI Bank, and then moved to J Sagar Associates (JSA) in 2008 until 2014.
AZB Mumbai managing partner Zia Mody commented, “We wish her all the best and were happy with the time Sugandha spent with us at AZB.”
We have reached out to Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas for comment.
