Ramesh K. Vaidyanathan is a Partner with Advaya Legal, a broad based commercial law firm based out of Mumbai, India.

Ramesh has had the opportunity to be on both sides of the table, i.e., inhouse as well as private practice. He began his career in private practice and went on to be the Managing Partner of the Mumbai office of one of the large law firms in India. He advised on a host of commercial transactions on behalf of international corporations doing business in India, including structuring of investments into India.

When India’s busiest airports in Delhi and Mumbai were privatised in 2006, GVK Group was selected to manage the prestigious Mumbai Airport development and modernisation project, rated by many as one of the most challenging infrastructure projects in the world. This presented Ramesh an exciting opportunity to move in-house as the Director (Legal) of Mumbai International Airport Limited and set up the entire legal function of the company from scratch.  In his additional role as the GVK Group Counsel, Ramesh was also involved in power, oil & gas, mining, port, road and other infrastructure projects.

Ramesh has had the opportunity to be involved in several litigations in various courts in India, including High Courts and the Supreme Court of India. He has also been part of domestic and international arbitrations.

Ramesh has spoken at various international fora on diverse topics and is active in the International Bar Association (IBA), Inter Pacific Bar Association (IPBA) and the International Young Lawyers Association (AIJA).
