What People Say

Strategy comes easily to Nahendran.  He grasps technical concepts very quickly coupled with an uncanny ability to provide strategic solutions on all manner of issues.  Where the situation requires, Nahendran will also suggest solutions which are complementary to proceedings in Court but his winning point must be that he is extremely clear, articulate, logical and persuasive in putting forward any argument.
