None. I did work as a junior to an individual advocate for nearly three years.

Why you chose to focus in these areas:
I have chosen to work in these practice areas since I started my career and have rather enjoyed the challenges of facing an adversary and demonstrating how we can win a case on its merits.
Details of the matter that you have worked on in your career to date that you are most proud of, and why:
We were able to successfully defend our American client from numerous liabilities, on the ground that it was not the “successor” of an entity, which became insolvent. In the long trial process of the case, we were required to produce numerous witnesses and documents to prove complex issues involved in the matter. The Court after appreciating the evidence of the parties on record, arrived at a conclusion that our (American) client was not the “successor” of the insolvent company and hence the liabilities did not.
