Mumbai: In yet another international accolade for the Tata group, Mr. Bharat Vasani, Chief, Legal & Group General Counsel, Tata Sons has been conferred with the Harvard Law School’s Center on the Legal Profession’s (CLP) Award for Professional Excellence. Mr. Vasani has been heading the legal function at the Tata group for more than a decade. He has been recognized by the CLP as one of the many distinguished lawyers who are making important contributions around the world.
CLP is the world’s leading academic institution for conducting research and teaching about the rapidly evolving global legal services market. The awards were given out at a special dinner organised around a theme related to CLP’s research, The Changing Role of the Global General Counsel, held on May 10, 2016 at the Lincoln Center Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse Suite, in New York City. An elite group of General Counsels who have helped to set high standards both within their organizations, and for the profession as a whole were honoured at the dinner. CLP also presented their research on General Counsels in India, Brazil, and China.
Commenting on the award, Mr. Bharat Vasani said, “My sincere thanks to CLP for conferring me with this prestigious award. It is indeed a delight to be recognised by an elite institution. I have always believed that convergence in the areas of corporate laws, commercial laws, competition laws and investment laws is feasible and achievable. This is the reason which peaked my interest with regard to the General Counsel Survey, and I wish the entire team the very best with their research.”
This award is designed to recognize lawyers who have made a significant contribution to advancing the ideals of the profession in their chosen field. Given Mr. Vasani’s years of experience, he has the unique benefit of having seen the sector evolve into the important position it commands today. His experience exemplifies everything that the award duly celebrates.
The dinner was attended by leading lawyers, academics, and policy makers. Prof. David B. Wilkins, Lester Kissel Professor of Law, Vice Dean for Global Initiatives on the Legal Profession, and Faculty Director of the Center on The Legal Profession, Harvard Law School, presented the award to Mr. Vasani.
