Juris Corp has hired J Sagar Associates (JSA) principal associate Pratish Kumar as a partner in its finance practice in Mumbai.

Kumar had begun his career at Juris Corp in 2008 after graduating from NLIU Bhopal, moving to JSA in 2012 as an associate, making senior associate in 2014 and principal associate in April of this year.

Commenting in a press statement, Kumar said: “Coming back to home ground is really exciting for me given that I started my career with Juris Corp. I look forward to contributing to the well-established practice areas of banking and financing. I am excited to be provided an opportunity to further grow the practice area and the firm attain new heights in the coming years.”

Founding partner H Jayesh added in the statement: “Having worked with him in the past I am aware of his capabilities and skills. He got recognised by the market at an early stage as a leading lawyer in banking and finance practice by Asialaw Profiles, for the year 2011.

“I am sure he will build upon that for his team & himself. His expertise & standing will help us accelerate our growth.”

Kumar specialises in securitisation, trade finance, restructuring and enforcement of collateral work, setting up and obtaining licenses for financial services and on structuring and launching of banking products, as well as cross-border finance issues.

Juris Corp had lost four partners around June 2017, partner Jeet Sen Gupta in January 2017, following a long line of exits from the firm, despite having attempted to hire partners aggressively in 2016.

However, Juris Corp had promoted two in Delhi and Bangalore in January.
