Vedanta group general counsel (+ ex JSA partner) Nitin Banerjee exits; destination, replacement TBC

Group GC Nitin Banerjee to move on from Vedanta group
Group GC Nitin Banerjee to move on from Vedanta group

Vedanta Limited group general counsel (GC) Nitin Banerjee has resigned from the company last week, we understand from authoritative sources.

Succeeding former group GC Mukesh Bhavnani who had left three years before, Banerjee had joined in December 2018 from Vedanta subsidiary Cairn Oil & Gas, where he had been GC since 2017.

According to his internal leaving announcement at Vedanta, he had said: “After a short, but nothing less than a fantastic, stint at Vedanta, I have decided to move on.

“It has been an absolute pleasure to have worked/interacted with a great team here during the last couple of years, both in my capacity as General Counsel for Cairn, Oil and Gas and Group General Counsel for Vedanta.

“I will leave the company with lots of experiences, memories, learnings and friends, all of which I will cherish for the rest of my life.”

We have not been able to confirm where he will be moving to, but have reached out to him for comment and will update or report if we hear anything.

According to market sources, Vedanta has not yet appointed a successor to Banerjee into group GC role.

The 2001 Lucknow University grad had headed legal at Vodafone and British Gas and had worked at J Sagar Associates (JSA) as a partner, before moving to Cairn in 2017.
