India Abroad, one of the leading publications for the diaspora of Indians worldwide, has just published an article (on November 4, 2011) chronicling reactions to the recent indictment and ongoing prosecution of Rajat Gupta (a prominent Indian businessman who rocketed to the top of American business as the head of McKinsey & Company and has also served on the boards of investment banking behemoths like Goldman Sachs) for alleged insider trading. In a somewhat ironic twist, India Abroad sought perspectives on the Gupta case from both sides of another high profile legal matter involving India and the United States, the Farhang v. IITK matter, quoting SNS PLC (my practice) as plaintiffs’ counsel for U.S. based Mandana Farhang and M.A. Mobile Ltd. and quoting Counselor Neel Chatterjee (well known Orrick litigator representing IITK also known for his representation of Facebook) as lead counsel for Indian government defendant Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IITK).
