Vivek Bajaj is AZB\'s newest partner. The Bangalore based former litigator is a graduate of the three year LLB program in Sri Jagatguru Renukacharya College. Having started his career in 2000 with Bangalore\'s Holla & Holla, he joined AZB in the middle of 2004. \"It has always been a great to be a part of AZB. The feeling that I\'m now a partner at AZB is yet to sink in.\" he told Bar & Bench.
AZB has been seeing a fair bit of activity for the last year or so. When Murali Ananthasivan and Vivek Chandy moved out of AZB to set up M&C Partners, AZB lost a large chunk of their real estate team to M&C. AZB expanded to Chennai and Hyderabad when Anup Shah joined them. Previously, Srinath Dasani was promoted to a partner just before Anup Shah joined. AZB, Bangalore is now 6 partners and about 35 associates strong. The partners includes Anup Shah, Srinath Dasani, Shreyas Jaisimha, Sunitha Rajesh and Suraj Govindaraj.
A part of AZB\'s corporate advisory practice, of his future with AZB, Bajaj said, \"Increasing our foothold in the market and expand our horizons have always been a prime focus area for us, and the same will continue.\"
