Still a relatively young firm, Juris Corp has shown aggressive growth in the past year, opening a new outpost in Chennai and earning international praise for its work in banking and finance matters. Alongside its client work, Juris Corp is heavily engaged in providing free legal aid and other pro bono activites.
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.
Juris Corp acted for private equity fund BanyanTree Growth Capital in its 500 million rupee ($8.6 million) investment in renewable power generator Atria Brindavan Power last year. The firm was also retained by one of the franchisees of the Indian Premier League, and was involved in reviewing, revising and negotiating the franchisee agreement executed with the Board of Control for Cricket in India, as well as various player, advertising, sponsor and other contracts related to the IPL.
