NLS ‘07 Vinay Kurien promoted to partner at foreign firm Jones Day

Jones Day has promoted 2007 NLSIU Bangalore graduate and former AZB & Partners associate Vinay Kurien to its partnership in Singapore, with effect from 1 January 2020.

Kurien was promoted as part of a global partnership round of 34.

He specialises in finance and corporate work, with clients including Procter & Gamble and Tata and Godrej subsidiaries, according to his firm profile:

Vinay represents clients such as The Procter & Gamble Co. and various companies in the Tata and Godrej groups. Among others, Vinay represented Micron Technology, Inc. (MTI) and its Singapore subsidiaries in connection with an $800 million sale and lease-back equipment financing transaction; L-Catterton Asia and the Crescent Point Group in a $226 million leveraged acquisition finance transaction for the purchase of a controlling stake in GXG in China; and Hyatt Hotels Corporation in connection with Indian project financing transactions in aggregate principal amount of approximately $185 million.

Vinay also advises on cross-border business and corporate restructuring matters involving noncontentious, contentious, and formal insolvency procedures, including formulating and implementing enforcement and debt recovery strategies, and represents clients such as Standard Chartered Bank, Singapore, and the Singapore subsidiary of a major international oil company.

He had moved to Singapore in 2011 from AZB, where he had been an associate for four years in Mumbai.

We have reached out to him for comment.

Jones Day has been regularly promoting India lawyers to its partnership: Karthik Kumar got the nod in 2015, while Manoj Bhargava (who has since left) was promoted in 2010.
