AS HEAD of international business development of corporate law firm Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, Rishabh Shroff is keeping a hectic schedule these days. Early to sense the direction of India’s investment flows, he was busy establishing an overseas office in Singapore last year. This year, the destination is Abu Dhabi, UAE. The corporate M&A vertical accounts for almost 70% turnover; others are litigation, banking and finance. “We are seeing a lot of investment interest from Middle East, specifically Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Number of Indians making family office investments and building investment structures in that region is also on the rise,” he says.
Rishabh is also co-head of private client practice specialising in family constitutions and settlements, trusts, wills and succession planning. He also provides related advice to trustees and other private client service providers such as family offices and institutional and corporate trustees. “We are seeing a lot of situations where families are separating. So we are doing a lot of this work, either working with one family or one branch of the family,” says Rishabh.
Last year, the firm added a new practice, intellectual property rights. “It is a key growth area for us,” he says.
