There have been drastic changes since I joined the profession, she says.  In the initial days way back in 1900 this profession was considered to be a rich man’s profession but later on it started losing its colour.

When Ms. Roy joined it wasn’t a very lucrative profession. There were not many good colleges. But since last few years this profession has gradually attained the same dynamism and the best paid profession. There are law firms who pay fortune to its Associates. The various law colleges all over India are remarkable and the juniors get good job opportunities not only in India but other countries as well.

She is frequently invited by the media to provide her expert opinion on various complex legal issues & current topics.

All the cases Ms. Roy has handled, she has come out as a winner in almost all of them. But, the field of law is such that there ought to be challenges on the way. One of the most challenging cases she has fought was of Mr SUHAIB ILYASI who was the Director producer of INDIA MOST WANTED. Looking back at it, Ms. Roy was just 7 years in the profession. The cases involved his criminal cases, his daughter custody cases his disputes pertaining to arbitration and corporate laws. All the matters were complicated and had extensive media coverage almost on everyday basis. But these cases are very close to her heart. It was a stepping stone of her career.

I was so glad when the anchor of ZEE TV told me Madam you the first youngest lawyer we have interviewed today. Success and fame within 7 years of profession, was remarkable which neither me nor my colleagues forget.

Her recent case which gave her an enriching experience was Ramjanambhoomi case. The case was a thorough learning process. And not to forget all the 5 honourable judges who gave 40 days to bring this matter to the conclusion.

When it comes to law, most people only know of litigation. But now that technology is involved in law sector too, and people are easily prone to information, the other sectors of law have come to light, which are just as important. Like the corporate law. Corporate law is equally important as litigation. Incorporation of a company or joint ventures or advices to the company on various corporate issues are the basic factors which are required for the smooth functioning of the business.

Laws are equally important either for an individual or the company. Therefore it’s imperative for business houses to work within the framework of legal system. A foreign firm which want to incorporate its business in India is not to be excluded from the above rule. Adroit has the corporate wing too.

Since 2003 Adroit law offices has spread its wings in International Law and practice. Ms. Roy is a solicitor in New South Wales with a Corporate Office in Sydney. Her partner Mr. Peter James is heading the Australian wing. The AUSTRALIAN HIGH COMMISSION is their major client and they are their senior Attorneys.

The experiences with the foreign clients have been very fulfilling and rewarding. They are professional and seek perfection. They appreciate your true value and there has never been any ambiguity pertaining to the professional charges.  The foreign clients who come to India for an incorporation of a company, legal advice or immigration issues to be sorted by courts or a client who meets them in Sydney for a matrimonial dispute or an international commercial Arbitration is equally satisfied with the outcome.

Future of Law and Her Message to the New Entrants-

I believe it to be the best profession one can be into where sky is the limit. If you are dynamic and hardworking nothing can stop you from achieving the heights of the profession. I counsel that the next generation should focus on quality and not quantity. They shouldn’t forget the very fabric of this profession which is noble. They should be fearlessly fighting for the justice without making discrimination of caste creed or social status.
