Fountain Court is pleased to announce that Zal Andhyarujina SA has joined Chambers as a door tenant.

Called in 1998, Zal is a Senior Advocate at the Indian Bar, based in Mumbai, with a leading commercial practice. His areas of expertise include international arbitration, enforcement of foreign awards and decrees, commercial litigation, company law, restructuring and insolvency, and financial services.

Zal read Jurisprudence at Wadham College, Oxford, as a Rhodes Scholar, and Economics at Bombay University.

Head of Chambers Bankim Thanki QC said:

“Fountain Court has had connections with the Indian legal market for years and with Gaurav Pachnanda SA based in Delhi and now with Zal based in Mumbai as door tenants we are pleased to have such prominent members in two of the most significant legal centres in India. Zal has a superb reputation in India and beyond, and we are delighted to welcome him to Chambers.”

Zal Andhyarujina SA said:

“I am very excited to join Fountain Court. I look forward to collaborating and working with its many distinguished lawyers. Fountain Court has built a reputation for disputes work internationally. It also recognises India as an important jurisdiction. I hope that together we will strengthen its presence in these areas of practice”

Senior Clerk Alex Taylor said:

“We are delighted that Zal is joining Fountain Court as a door tenant. India is a significant and growing source of disputes work, not just for London but also for Singapore where we have an established office, and we are very pleased to be further adding to the expertise we can offer our clients in that market.”

Zal’s arrival at Fountain Court further strengthens its connections to the Indian market, following the arrival of Gaurav Pachnanda SA as a door tenant in 2016.
