Adani SVP legal Badrinath Durvasula joins Hindustan Construction as GC in Mumbai

Adani legal head Badrinath Durvasula joins HCCAdani legal head Badrinath Durvasula joins HCC

The Adani Group’s senior vice president legal, Badrinath Durvasula, who was heading the legal function’s M&A, contracting, litigation and arbitration vertical, has joined Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) as vice president and general counsel (GC).

He told us that the legal team at HCC consisted of 10 lawyers, and he would be focusing on litigation, arbitration, contracts, strategy and negotiations.

“Regulators and bureaucrats may come and go, but the path set for emerging India should stay robust. If I can be a part of that process, my move is justified,” he told India Business Law Journal, which had first reported the move.

He has moved from Ahmedabad to Mumbai for the role, for family reasons.

The Mumbai University MSc, LLM, MBA and LLM graduate, had worked at a number of companies since 1982, including 10 years at General Insurance Corporation of India, Lloyds Steel Industries, Asian Paints, Reliance Industries (from 2001 to 2007), United Phosphorus (2008 to 2011), Binani Industries, Larsen & Toubro (from 2011 to 2015), before moving the Adani Group in 2015.

Why these so called powerful GCs don't join law firms? You need a lawyer skill set to work and survive in a law firm climate.

Go talk to your seniors, they will educate you on real life. GCs have high stress jobs, are finally accountable for the legal work, and cant hide behind "law firm advice". Lots of GCs have taken deliberate career choices, and are happy with it. This constant sniping by insecure junior associates is going to continue, it looks like.

. . . responding to another pompous half baked ill informed associate who believes that a career in a law firm is the ultimate achievement for a lawyer.

Has anyone else also spotted the above contradiction or it is my mere figment of imagination?
