Success for 3VB’s Gopal Subramanium in Ground Breaking Appearance before the Singapore High Court

The Singapore High Court has upheld the USD $720 Million ICC Arbitral Award in favour of the Japanese pharmaceutical major Daiichi Sankyo Company Limited, who were represented by 3VB associate, Gopal Subramanium. The ground breaking appearance of Mr Subramanium was the first instance (along with the counter party in the same action) of an Indian Senior Advocate being granted rights of audience by the High Court of Singapore to appear before them and argue key aspects of Indian Law, which were essential for the adjudication of the case.

Appearing for Daiichi Sankyo, Gopal Subramanium was briefed by Pavan Bhushan and Jayavardhan Singh of GS Chambers, P&A Law Offices; Anand S Pathak, Amit K Mishra, Abhijeet Sinha, and Samridhi Hota along with Singapore-based law firm, Oon & Bazul LLP.
