Kochhar & Co hires new Mumbai head from Amarchand
Kochhar & Co has hired Harry Chawla, formerly a senior partner at Amarchand Mangaldas, as a senior partner and the head of the Mumbai practice. Chawla will be based in Delhi and will divide his time between the Delhi and Mumbai offices.
Kochhar & Co. Managing Partner Rohit Kochhar said: “If you really want to change the destiny of an organisation then I think a law firm like ours would provide a better platform to someone as senior as Harminder (as I call him) to come on board and play that destiny-shaping role than, may be, in his previous firm”.
“In addition to his very rich professional experience and his expertise as a lawyer, what specially helped is the fact that he and I share an excellent repo and relationship which is punctuated with the feelings of trust, faith and confidence and I see his presence in the law firm as a catalyst for a much greater growth and of course taking the firm to much greater heights than what he have done in the past. I am looking to him to playing a destiny-shaping role not just for Mumbai office but for the law firm in general”, added Rohit.
