I am an internationally trained lawyer from India with experience in corporate-commercial transactions, general litigation and IP prosecution and litigation. As an internationally trained lawyer I bring significant knowledge and skills gained through my years of legal practice. My experience includes litigation of corporate-commercial, civil and intellectual property laws in the High Court at Chennai (India), which is the highest court of record in the state. I gained this experience through positions with small- to mid-size firms of barristers and solicitors. This gave me the opportunity to engage in challenging, substantive, highly varied work across a broad spectrum of practice areas. I had complete responsibility for the carriage of my files, from interviewing clients to representing them in court. Having handled various types of clients from individuals to corporations to professional institutions, I had the chance to address the issues of clients with varying needs; including researching the law and regulations, analyzing case precedents, drafting briefs, and representing them before various forums.

Since immigrating to Canada in March 2011, I have transitioned from maternity to being a full-time stay at home mother and now starting off on my own, all the while balancing family responsibilities with my professional development. This experience has strengthened my ability to multi-task, to be organized and detail oriented, while being focused and practical in applying my time to work quickly and efficiently.
