January 28, 2019:
Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas partner Rahul Goel, who specializes in technology, media and telecoms, as well as competition law, has resigned together with his team, which includes partner-level director Anu Monga.
Beside Goel and Monga, the team is understood to include another three lawyers.
CAM Managing Partner Cyril Shroff commented, “We wish him well in future.” He said Goel would be on a three-month notice period.
They all gave notice last week, we understand, and leave Delhi without a specialized TMT practice after partner Asim Abbas’ resignation.
We could not authoritatively confirm at the time of publication where he and his team will move to.
Goel, a Delhi University graduate with an LLM in TMT laws from the University of Essex in the UK, has practised since 2001, having worked for 7 yrs with Seth Dua & Associates where he made partner in 2009.
In 2013, he joined Dhir & Dhir, followed by a move two years later from Dhir to CAM.
Competition law practice director Monga – also a Delhi University alumnus (2006) and a National University of Singapore LLM holder, had been in Goel’s team since joining Seth Dua in 2007, and had moved with him to Dhir and CAM.
At Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas she joined as a principal associate and was promoted to director in 2017.
Cyril Amarchand’s Delhi office has seen at least five other partner-level departures since December:
- Harsh Kumar who joined Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas,
- Kirat Nagra and Rishi Anand, who joined DSK,
- TMT partner Asim Abbas,
- Manishi Pathak, who has joined IndusLaw this week.
