In major surprise move,  ALMT’s  Hitesh  Jain and team of near-30 to join Juris Corp

ALMT Legal senior partner Hitesh Jain, whom we had first reported as moving out of ALMT on 24 March, will be joining Juris Corp as a partner, we understand from reliable sources.

It is understood that Jain was also considering several other options.

This will take the firm’s headcount to nearly 80, including Jain’s team of around 27, including two partners, joining from ALMT.

JurisCorp, under managing partner H Jayesh, has had offices in Bangalore, Delhi, as well as two Mumbai offices in Express Towers and in Worli.

“This is just the beginning of an exciting journey,” said Jain. “Of course we have plans and those plans will unfold in the days to come.”

Jayesh echoed the sentiment, adding: “This is just the beginning. Other conversation are happening but it’s very premature and nothing has crystallised. The next 6 months or so are going to be very exciting.”

Jayesh and Jain know each other from their days at Udwadia Udeshi for around three years, where they had both worked previously as partners.

Jayesh said that Jain would be doing more than just litigation, also real estate and some amount of corporate commercial work. “The synergies are there.”

Jayesh himself is a financial services expert, though he added that the firm also did “a fair amount” of private equity work, restructuring, and disputes.

“A re-alignment of teams will happen over some time, and the nature of clientele will become broader,” said Jayesh.

While JurisCorp has not had the easiest of times for a while, losing much of its partnership several times over, Jain joining could go some way towards steadying the ship.
