Who's Who Legal Corporate: Merger & Acquisition

Zia Mody, founder and managing partner of AZB & Partners, is one of India’s foremost corporate attorneys. She has a BA (law) from Cambridge and an LLM from Harvard, and is a member of the New York State Bar. She began her career as a corporate associate at Baker McKenzie in New York, where she worked for five years before moving to India to set up her own practice, establishing the Chambers of Zia Mody, which became AZB & Partners in 2004.

In 2016 Zia Mody was named India Managing Partner of the Year by Asian Legal Business (Thomson Reuters), and in 2017 she won the inaugural UK India Award for Professional of the Year. Zia features in Fortune India’s list of “The 50 Most Powerful Women in Business in India” (2016 and 2017), and is recognised as a “Top 13 Female Acritas Star” globally by Acritas Star (2018). It has been said that few of Zia’s peers can match her skills when it comes to acquisitions, joint ventures, company restructuring, foreign inward investment-related practice and corporate law.

Her abilities are recognised globally, as is reflected in her appointment as deputy chairman and non-executive director of the HSBC Asia Pacific board; member of the governing board of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration; foreign arbitrator on the panel of arbitrators of the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission; member of the World Bank Administrative Tribunal, Washington DC (2008-2013); and vice president and member of the London Court of International Arbitration (2010-2013). Zia has also been a member of numerous committees constituted by various ministries, regulators and industry bodies including SEBI, RBI, MCA and CII.
