About Adv. Rama Sarode X Close
Rama is a pleasant person who is very logical in her thinking and realistic. She is empathetic and knows the importance of being a good listener. She is very patient and does not react to situations. She responds after giving a lot of thought and understanding the pros and cons. She is an accommodator and over the years has learnt the art of behavioural flexibility that allows her to achieve her outcomes even in challenging circumstances. She is an introvert and enjoys her ‘me’ time to introspect because she believes that there are no failures only feedback.
She is not rigid and is open to ideas. While working as a lawyer she has the ability to understand the interface between various laws and hence she has a 360-degree approach to resolving a case. She considers all possibilities, keeping in mind the outcomes of the client.
She has an easy way of connecting with people. Her trainings are well appreciated because she makes it easy for the trainees to understand the subject through lots of examples from real life cases. She avoids using legal jargons and simplifies the subject.
