Shagoofa Rashid Khan, the national funds and investments practice head at Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas (CAM) has quit the firm after being associated with it for a little over five years.
She joined National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF) in Mumbai as its group general counsel and head corporate affairs earlier this month.
A graduate of Osmania University, she did her LLM from the University of Mumbai.
She carries 23 years of experience across structuring funds, managed accounts, fund documentation, private equity, acquisitions/exits/restructuring/joint ventures and strategic initiatives, international taxation and planning, corporate and commercial laws, business advisory, compliance and ethics advisory, audit and finance.
Khan started her legal journey with a stint with Nishith Desai Associates in 2002 as head of real estate funds and international tax policy practices. After spending four years with the firm, she was associated with Kotak Investment Advisors Limited as senior vice president and legal head for nearly eight years. She moved over to Tata Services Limited in the same capacity in 2013. She had a seven-month stint with IDFC Alternatives Limited for seven months before joining CAM in 2016 where she spent over five years.
She is also a qualified chartered accountant and a company secretary.
"It has been an amazing professional journey of 23 years… Am excited to continue my story with NIIF and am looking forward to this new beginning, new learnings, new friendships and new milestones," Khan said in a social media post.
