Dua partner appointed additional judge


Dua Associates Chennai-based partner Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy has been appointed additional judge of Madras High Court. “It is a matter of pride for us to have one of our partners elevated to a high court bench,” said CR Dua, the founding parter of Dua Associates.

“While Senthil will be missed by the firm and more so at the firm’s Chennai office, his contribution to the firm’s growth and well-being cannot be overemphasized. We wish him all success in his new avatar and are confident that he will be a great asset to the Indian judicial system.”

He was sworn in on 22 February by Madras High Court Chief Justice VK Tahilramani at a function on the court campus. A government notification said that he would hold the post for two years.

Ramamoorthy joined Dua Associates in 2001 and focused on corporate and commercial litigation, arbitration and corporate transactional and advisory services.
