Rau was admitted to the firm’s partnership in 2006, and was co-heading the Corporate Practice with Reeba Chacko at Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas.

The Partners at his team include Ganesh Rao, Shishir V, Anu Tiwari, Dhruv Singhal and Jaya Singhania. Both Tiwari and Singhal were recently promoted to Partnership.
