India: CAM appoints M&A head with lateral hire from SAM
Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas (CAM) has recruited corporate veteran Akila Agrawal as its new head of M&A in New Delhi from Shardul Amarchand Mangaladas (SAM).
Agrawal joined legacy Amarchand & Mangaldas & Suresh A. Shroff & Co a decade ago. When the firm went defunct in 2015 and split into CAM and SAM, Agrawal was among the partners that went with SAM. Her experience is in M&A, joint ventures, employment law, and corporate restructuring.
CAM and SAM have been making lateral hires from each other quite often recently, with corporate partner Mukul Sharma joining CAM from SAM, and corporate partner Nivedita Tiwari making the move to SAM from CAM.
