JSA strikes back, hires recent Luthra Mumbai corporate partner Apurva Jayant (NLS ‘07)

Apurva Jayant moves from Luthra to JSA

J Sagar Associates (JSA) has hired Apurva Jayant, a corporate partner who had recently left L&L Partners, as a partner in its Mumbai office.

Way before having been a partner at Samvad Partners and then Luthra & Luthra, as it was called in 2016 when she joined, she had started her career at JSA for half a year after graduating NLSIU Bangalore in 2007.

She then had joined AZB & Partners followed by Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas until 2013.

According to an announcement by JSA’s joint managing partners Amit Kapur and Vivek Chandy:

J. Sagar Associates is pleased to welcome Ms. Apurva Jayant as a Retained Partner in the Corporate team, in Mumbai. She will be joining us on 9th November, 2020 along with her team.

With 13 years of experience in M&A, Joint Ventures and General Corporate, Apurva will be able to provide excellent service to our clients.

Apurva joins us from Luthra and Luthra. She is a 2007 graduate of National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bangalore.

We are delighted to have her on board and believe she will have a long and successful career with JSA.

We have reached out to Luthra for comment.

We understand that at L&L, she had a team of 10.

Her hire follows shortly from L&L hiring J Sagar Associates (JSA) technology, media and telecoms partner Asim Abbas.

We had reported last month that Jayant and another L&L corporate partner in Delhi, Samarth Gupta, had given notice to leave the firm, just as the dispute between the two L&L corporate equity partners had hit the Delhi high court.
