Tushar Chawla, the India general counsel (GC) of Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), passed away on 22 November after being hospitalized for nearly a month for jaundice treatment. Mr Chawla, who was 51, is survived by his wife Yogita and daughter Aashka.
“He was not just a mentor or a leader, he was a very good friend to each member of the legal team. He used to have a personal equation and a unique set of jokes with each one of us,” said Alpana Srivastava, assistant general counsel (India) at JLL.
Srivastava, who will be serving as the acting GC and ensuring work continuity while the company decides on a successor, added that his passing is a big loss to the company.
“He was a meticulous lawyer and aggressive when it came to protecting the organization. As his deputy, it’s a loss of direction for me personally. We found out that he was handling a lot of things on his own. I will be working on them only now,” Srivastava said.
