On the behalf of the students, faculty and the staff, NUJS would like to congratulate Mr. Sidharth Sharma, NUJS Batch of 2005 for his appointment as the General Counsel at Tata Sons. He will be the youngest general counsel at Tata Group and will report to the chairman of the group, Mr. N Chandrasekaran.
The hiring will mark his return to Tata Sons, where he used to be part of the legal team several years ago. Mr. Sharma had quit Tata Sons to follow a solo law practice, during which he advised several parties including Tata Sons' parent, Tata Trusts in an income tax matter against the revenue department. He has represented the Tata group of companies in various cases in the past, including the very crucial Tata-Mistry litigation.
NUJS wishes him all the best for his future endeavours and the laurels he will accumulate.
