Indian law firm Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas has made its first partner hire in the new year with the addition of KZ Kuriyan, who had been a Bengaluru-based partner in J Sagar Associates’ corporate team since 2020.

Kuriyan, who had spent his entire career at JSA since graduating in 2011, specializes in private equity deals and assists domestic and international PE funds on cross-border transactions.

“He has significant industry knowledge across a range of industries, particularly in the real estate, logistics and IT/ITES sectors, and acts as counsel for several Indian and international corporate and investment funds on matters relating to transaction structuring, entry and exit strategies, foreign direct investments, overseas direct investments, and general corporate commercial work,” CAM said in a statement.

One of his top clients has been one of Bengaluru’s top real estate developers, Prestige Estates Projects. He advised Prestige Estates on a $1.5 billion real estate sale to US private equity major Blackstone Group, one of the largest portfolio deals in the sector.

Last year, CAM welcomed a new intellectual property practice head in New Delhi and a former Securities and Exchange Board lawyer in Mumbai.
