AZB & Partners has confirmed that a Bangalore-based partner has left the firm.
Shreya Jayasimha is setting up his own practice, called Aarna Law, according to AZB managing partner Zia Mody. Jayasimha did not immediately return a request for comment.
The litigation lawyer, who had joined AZB five years ago as a partner, represents clients in court on various disputes, as well as in mediation and arbitration proceedings. He has also handled company law and intellectual property matters in the past.
This will be the second time Jayasimha has run his own firm. Between 2003 and 2008, he had practiced through his Jayasimha Law Chambers. Prior to that, he had worked at 10-lawyer Jayaram & Jayaram Law in Bangalore.
