Salve, Khambata, Pallavi Shroff, Rajiv Luthra to attend India Conference at Harvard

Senior Advocates Harish Salve and Darius Khambata will be part of the law panel at the India Conference to be organised at Harvard, USA. The conference will be held from February 11- February 12.

The Harvard India Conference is a student-run conference at the Harvard Business School & Harvard Kennedy School.

The conference this year is themed around “India: The Global Growth Engine”. The law panel will focus on international arbitration regime in India owing to the increasing need for faster and alternate methods of dispute resolution mechanisms.

Apart from Salve and Khambata, the law panel will also include Dipen Sabharwal, partner at law firm White & Case, Jan Paulsson, founding partner of Three Crowns LLP and Kabir Duggal, senior associate at Baker & McKenzie and Davinder Singh, Senior Counsel and CEO, Drew & Napier LLC.

Salve and Khambata are not the only Indian lawyers attending the conference. Rajiv Luthra, managing partner at Luthra and Luthra, is on a panel on entrepreneurship while Pallavi Shroff, managing partner at Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co. is expected to speak on women in leadership positions.

LL.M candidate at Harvard Law School, Ashutosh Ray, is organising the law panel. He had this to say:

“The idea is to have lawyers from different countries of the world with interest in India on one platform. It is a step to keep the ball rolling set by the Niti Ayog conference in Delhi last year. 

The momentum to make India as the arbitration hub is gaining steam. A discussion on this theme by some of the finest lawyers at a large scale Harvard event is a reflection of the mood. 

Mr. Luthra and Mrs. Shroff are part of exciting panels. Law is intertwined with every issue and it is essential that different panels benefit from the views of the leading lawyers.”

The two-day conference will also witness well known faces across fields like Shashi Tharoor, Omar Abdullah, Vinod Rai, R Madhavan, and Deepa Mehta.
