Indian law firm AZB & Partners has welcomed back aviation lawyer Sarah Jayne Rufus as a partner in Mumbai from airline IndiGo, where she was associate general counsel.

With about two decades of experience, Rufus advises on M&A, securities Law, and banking and finance within the aviation sector. Her first stint with AZB was from 2006 to 2010, before she moved to S&R Associates, and then to IndiGo in 2015. Rufus earlier worked for New Delhi Law Offices.

She becomes AZB’s second lateral partner hire in Mumbai in about two months, after the firm added Ajay Singh Solanki, formerly the head of the labour practice at Nishith Desai Associates, in April.
