LEGAL ERA 8TH ANNUAL 40 UNDER 40 RISING STAR AWARDS 2023
Recognizing Young Lawyers’ for Leveraging New Opportunities and Providing Strategic & Fresh Legal Solutions in the Global Landscape
“When I was coming here, I looked at this 40 under 40 and I felt a little jealous! It’s such a wonderful occasion that you’re being recognized by your peers! And I also felt a bit of an imposter syndrome – every day I get biodatas and CVs of people. I look at them and I see myself 20 years ago – and I wonder if I had even got an interview at my Chamber. Everybody seems to be so bright and so motivated!”
- An extract from Gourab Banerji, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India’s address at Legal Era’s 7th Annual 40 Under 40 Rising Star Awards 2022.
