Bringing relevance and specificity to every client interaction.


AZB & Partners’ reputation in India for private funds and asset management platforms across sectors is well established. We represent global financial institutions, banks, multilateral institutions and family offices in their investments in India and Asia–focused funds and platforms. We also engage several sovereign funds, pension funds and foreign funds and offer regulatory advice. Our experience extends to the special requirements of sovereigns in relation to disclosure compliance and securities laws. 

At the forefront of the evolution of secondary transactions in this space, we assist clients in purchasing from or selling their fund business to another fund house. This market–driven practice demands an awareness of its growth and the agility to respond to the changing regulatory landscape. That extra edge manifests through our active participation in numerous committees and industry representations. 

The senior equity partners who head this practice offer our clients an unprecedented advantage with their collective knowledge and experience. 

Relevance and specificity are in sharp focus with the requisite support from cross–functional teams, including disputes, employment, IBC, IPR, tax and other practice areas. We deliver consistently on three fronts: an in–depth understanding of the issue/transaction, timely and effective execution and partner availability.
