Thirteen out of the sixteen lawyers are from Madras while three of them, S Subbiah, S Meenakshi Sundaram and N Krishnaveni practise in the Madurai Bench of the High Court.

STS Murthi, V Ayyadurai and C Manishankar are the three Additional Advocate Generals in the list.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court of India had put its Senior Designations on hold after Senior Advocate Indira Jaising filed a petition challenging the current process which is followed by the apex court for giving the gown. This petition is likely to come up for hearing this month.
