Reena Asthana Khair

Reena Asthana Khair has joined Kochhar & Co’s New Delhi office as a senior partner and head of the firm’s international trade and indirect tax practices, bringing with her a team of two associates.

Khair has argued and successfully procured favourable orders in high-profile matters in India relating to World Trade Organization trade remedies such as anti-dumping, safeguard and anti-subsidy proceedings, and indirect taxation.

“Several cases argued by Reena have resulted in landmark judgments on interpretation of terms, classification of goods and evolution of laws in the areas of customs and anti-dumping,” said Rohit Kochhar, the founder of Kochhar & Co.

Khair has represented more than 200 clients including MNCs and public sector enterprises before the Customs, Excise and Service Tax Appellate Tribunal and other appellate forums, as well as the Supreme Court and various high courts.
