Link Legal India Law Services chief executive officer (CEO) Jayanarayanan NR, who had joined the firm in February 2016 from Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, has left the firm and will relocate to Mumbai.

According to a press release from the firm: “Jayanarayanan, our CEO has decided to move on to relocate to Mumbai. We respect Jay’s (as we like to call him) decision and appreciate his contribution during the last 3 years for growth of the firm. We wish him all the very best for his future. Jay will continue to remain a friend of the firm and will be remembered fondly by all partners and other members of the firm.”

Jayanarayanan added: “I would like to thank all the partners for the cooperation they have provided in the last few years and what I was able to achieve has been due to the trust bestowed on me. I realise all journeys have to come to an end and wish the firm and its partners all the best for future. The relationship developed with the partners and the firm will always be special and cherished.”

Before Link Legal he had been at Amarchand Mangaldas (and Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas as it turned into) from 2010, after several years at Deutsche Bank, Tech Mahindra, Syntel and GE from 2002. He holds a Bachelor of Science, a BTech, an MBA and a Master of Business Law from NLSIU Bangalore.

We have reached out to him for comment about his future plans.

At the same time, Link Legal has also hired someone into the somewhat similar role of “head of strategy”: HR consultant and professional Rajneesh Singh, who had been running consultancy SimplyHR Solutions previously as managing partner.

Singh’s other previous stints also include group head HR at Network 18, as well as positions at Hindalco, Eicher Motors, Oberoi Hotels, Vodafone and Gillette.

He would be “implementing the strategic objectives of the firm in the coming times” and “add impetus to the firm’s vision of creating and recognizing talent with focus on its growth”, according to its press release.

Singh specialises in “culture building, talent management, employee engagement, learning and development and industrial relations”, according to the law firm’s press release, and:

... is Post Graduate Diploma holder in PM&IR from XISS, Ranchi. He is a Mentor at the School of Inspired Leadership (SOIL), Gurgaon.
