Alongside its client work, Juris Corp is heavily engaged in providing free legal aid and other pro bono activites.

    PEOPLE & PRACTICES

    Exemplifying Juris Corp’s strength in the financial services sector, founding partner H Jayesh earns listings in our sister publication Who’s Who Legal both for his banking and capital markets work. Sources in particular hailed his work in derivatives, his handling of complex capital market transactions and advisory mandates and his understanding of regulatory issues pertaining to entry strategies and licensing in the Indian securities markets.
