Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co Delhi Disputes Partner Surjendu Sankar Das is leaving the firm to set up his own Advocate-on-Record and counsel practice in June 2019.

Surjendu graduated from NUJS, Kolkata in 2008 and cleared the AOR examination in 2016. He was elevated to partnership in 2018.

SAM & Co in its release, stated,

“Surjendu works with Mr. Tejas Karia, equity partner in the Disputes Resolution practice of the Firm. His team and clients will continue with Tejas and other partners in a smooth transition upon Surjendu’s departure.

We wish Surjendu much success in this new phase of his professional journey.”

Commenting on his decision, Surjendu said,

“I was always passionate about independent practice. Being an AOR, I have added benefits in the Supreme Court. In the new journey, my focus will remain on the Supreme Court as well as Arbitration which I have been doing for the last 11 years.

During this long tenure in the Firm, I had the privilege of appearing before different High Courts, fora and the Supreme Court. I must say that I had immense exposure and enriching experience in arbitration, both international and domestic, initially under the able guidance of Mr. Ciccu Mukhopadhaya and then Mr. Tejas Karia in the Firm. I am sincerely grateful to Ms. Pallavi Shroff and Mr. Shardul Shroff for affording this opportunity in the Firm. My new endeavour would not have been possible without the Firm’s support. I wish good luck and prosperity to the Firm”.

Recently, SAM Bangalore Corporate Partner Siddharth Nair resigned from the firm although his resignation is yet to be accepted.
