I am an associate in Bird & Bird's international Aviation & Aerospace sector group and part of the practice in Asia-Pacific from Singapore.
I have extensive experience in advising Indian airlines on cross border aircraft leases and commercial and technical contracts. I have had the opportunity to work with my clients very closely over the years which has helped me recognize their requirements and advise effectively.
Almost all my work experience has involved complex cross-border issues involving varying jurisdictions, which has equipped me with insight to address varied concerns of my clients.
Having worked primarily for airlines, I understand the value of commercial astuteness and cost-effectiveness in operations. To that end, I strive to collaborate with my clients in arriving at advantageous solutions.
Legal profession happened as a fortunate stroke of serendipity and I thoroughly enjoyed studying the subject for the breadth of understanding that it offered in aspects of human life. However, the most rewarding aspect of my profession has been meeting people from diverse cultures, walks of life and sectors. Everyday brings an exciting new set of challenges, so there is never a dull moment.
Aircraft have always fascinated me as an adolescent and I feel absolutely lucky that I get to work and grow in an industry that I truly feel passionate about!
