Bahram Vakil

You are here

Bahram Vakil has played a pivotal role in the history of Grameen Capital India (GCI) and Grameen Foundation in the sometimes tortuous regulatory environment of India. He and his staff at the prestigious law firm AZB Partners, in Mumbai, have contributed many hours of pro-bono legal assistance to help form GCI and Grameen Foundation India, in addition to providing the use of AZB’s offices and conference rooms for many meetings.

His depth and breadth of knowledge and relationships spanning the microfinance, regulatory and banking sectors have been huge contributing factors to the success of GCI, and in selecting board members for both GCI and GFI. Bahram has law degrees from Bombay University and Columbia University, is a member of the New York State Bar Association, and worked for two major law firms in the United States prior to returning to India in 1985, where he became a partner in one of the largest law firms in India before becoming a founding partner in 2004 of AZB & Partners.
