Professional Experience
I Enrolled in Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry on 15.10.1993. I joined the office of my revered senior Mr.B.Ramamoorthy even while I was a student during the 1st year B.L and after my enrolment, I continued in his office as his Junior from 1993 till 1997 and thereafter I started independent practice. I am a first generation lawyer and therefore had to take up whatever cases came my way. As a result, I picked up all round practice in the Original side, Appellate side, Criminal side and Writ Jurisdiction before the Hon'ble High Court of Madras. I also did Service matters before the Central Administrative Tribunal, Chennai Bench and Practiced in Subordinate courts - both Civil and Criminal.

On various occasions I was appointed as Amicus Curiae by the High court both on the civil and criminal side while deciding some important questions of law.

I have regularly contributed Articles on various legal issues both on the civil and criminal side and the same has been reported in Law Journals.

I was also given an opportunity as a contact person in the Tamil Nadu State Judicial Academy and I was regularly addressing the Subordinate Court Judges, on various topics both in Civil and Criminal law.

I had the good fortune to be part of Consultation and Drafting Committee which suggested various improvements in the realm of commercial litigation all over the Country. This has resulted in the enactment of the Commercial Courts, Commercial Division and Commercial Appellate Division of High Courts Act, 2015.
