Legal titan - Zia Mody

Suman Layak        Print Edition: September 18, 2011

Zia Mody, 55, is Managing Partner, AZB & Partners, the law firm that has advised companies such as Reliance Industries, Vedanta and Bharti Airtel on their biggest deals - with BP, Cairn and Zain, respectively.

Having started practising at a time when there were hardly any women lawyers, she says she is grateful to the judges of the Bombay High Court for the 'nurturing environment' they provided, thus boosting her confidence.
