Nani Palkhivala stormed across the Indian legal scene like a behemoth. Following a stellar academic career, he soon rose to prominence as one of India's most sought-after lawyers, where he remained for the next five decades. He was a phenomenally accomplished lawyer known for his extraordinary strength of focus and convincing advocacy. He wrote one of the best commentary on the law and practise of income taxation early in his career.

His reputation as a constitutional attorney is well-deserved. Between 1965 and 1995, he appeared before the Supreme Court of India in practically every significant constitutional law issue, including Golak Nath, Bank Nationalisation, Privy Purses, Kesavananda Bharati, St. Xavier's, Mandal Commission, and the Election Commission case. Palkhivala also acted as India's representative in three important international conflicts. He presented critical talks on the annual budget to audiences of over 100,000 people. He was a guy of many parts and strong opinions.

Surprisingly, he never mentioned a single note. He was a remarkable individual who gave liberally yet quietly to charity causes. Palkhivala's path as a lawyer is chronicled in Nani Palkhivala: The Courtroom Genius, which also analyses the key instances in which he appeared and which impacted the country's fate. The book offers a unique glimpse into his working techniques and lobbying style. No law student, lawyer, chartered accountant, member of the court, or well-informed citizen can afford to pass up this opportunity to read this book.
