The Gujarat Bar is to have another senior counsel, with Anshin Desai the sole lawyer to be designated thus far.
Desai has over twenty years’ experience at the Bar, having enrolled in August 1994. He completed a BA in Economics from Mithibai College of Arts in Mumbai, after which he obtained an LL.B. degree from Nav Gujarat Law College in Ahmedabad.
He was on the Central Government Standing Counsel Panel from 2007 to 2014 and on the Senior Panel of the Central Government from 2009 to 2014.
The Gujarat High Court has had a tradition of designating young lawyers as Senior Advocate. To cite a couple of examples, Shalin Mehta, and Yatin Oza, who was initially offered the designation at the age of 35, but ultimately accepted it when he was 39.
