Indian firm J. Sagar Associates hires Herbert Smith attorney
J. Sagar Associates has hired Promod Nair as a Partner in the Bangalore office.
Nair previously working as a Senior Associate with Herbert Smith’s international arbitration group in London, and is registered to practice in England and Wales as well as India. He also sits as an arbitrator, and is currently arbitrating a dispute seated in Hong Kong.
Nair commented on the move, explaining: “I have had an excellent innings at Herbert Smith and in London over the last few years. I have been fortunate to work for States, foreign investors and a number of other clients (including many Indian companies) in international arbitrations and public international law disputes. I hope to use this experience to help build a first-class litigation and arbitration practice at JSA, and sit more often as an arbitrator. More generally, I would like to play a part (in whatever small way I can) in improving the arbitration and litigation landscape in India. With an estimated 33 million cases clogging the courts, it is absolutely essential that we make a success of arbitration in the country and find ways and means to help courts deliver justice more effectively.”
