He heads the dispute resolution practice at ALMT Legal’s Bangalore office.

AS Ponnanna is an Additional Advocate General at the Karnataka HC. Ponnanna climbed through the ranks of state government’s legal team in a relatively short span of time.

The names of Gurudas Kannur, Arvind Kamath and KN Phanindra recently came up for elevation as HC judges but were eventually remitted to the Chief Justice of Karnataka High Court by the SC Collegium.

These designations are the first to take place ever since the Supreme Court’s judgment in Indira Jaising v. Union of India, by which the system of designating Senior Advocates saw a change.
