Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

My main highlight is helping build this practice from scratch since we first started in 2007. When our firm started this practice, we were just 2 lawyers, we are now 15. We have won multiple team awards in the last 5 years, and are now market leaders. Indian families are extremely reluctant to talk about succession and I feel that I have raised the level of awareness of this across India.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

I would advise them to be bold and find their own platform in this world. Private client work is relatively new in India, and hence gives an excellent way to build your name from a young age. Find the type of work that appeals to you, and pursue it relentlessly.
