Kingfisher with Agarwal Law, Manu Singhvi loses in SC appeal to UBI, advised by Verus, Rohatgi

Kingfisher Airlines, advised by Agarwal Law Associates, lost in the Supreme Court yesterday after its special leave petition against last week’s Calcutta high court order, as reported by Legally India, was dismissed in the beleaguered operator’s wilful default battle with the United Bank of India (UBI). UBI was advised by Verus Advocates.

Kingfisher, represented in court by senior advocates Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Parag Tripathi instructed by Agarwal partner Mahesh Agarwal, had sought urgent relief against the Calcutta HC order, which had disallowed its request to use legal representation in UBI’s wilful default proceedings against it.

But since UBI yesterday also held a committee meeting, which Kingfisher did not attend and which declared Kingfisher and its directors as wilful defaulters, the Supreme Court ruled that Kingfisher’s petition was infructuous in light of the committee’s decision, as reported by the Indian Express and others.

Verus partners Krishnayan Sen and Rishad Chowdhury and associate Namrata Apte had instructed attorney general of India Mukul Rohatgi and senior advocate Dhruv Mehta for UBI.
