Sudipta Ghosh has taken over as general counsel of CLP India, one of the largest foreign investors in India’s power sector. She succeeds Nabeel Saleem, who moved to Monsanto to be head of legal for India.
“As the GC of this organization my motto is to be the solution provider … to find strategic solutions for the organization and transactions,” Ghosh told India Business Law Journal. She heads a team of four in-house lawyers, which she describes as “a small law firm within the organization”. Ghosh, who joined the company in 2009, said that the company is currently looking to expand its legal team.
CLP India is a subsidiary of Hong Kong-listed CLP Holdings. It has a diversified portfolio producing close to 3,000 megawatts (MW) in India. With operational and committed capacity of around 1,024 MW across wind and solar, CLP is one of the country’s largest renewable energy producers. In June 2016, the company entered into a joint venture agreement with Suzlon Energy for a 100 MW solar project in Veltoor in Telangana. This will be CLP’s first solar power generation project in India.
