The story of Sundaraswamy & Ramdas, Advocates (“S&R”) is one of imagination, determination and hard work. S&R is a law Firm having its roots in the oldest law practice in the City of Bengaluru, with a legacy dating back to 1926. The practice of the Firm had its origins in the vision of Mr. S.D. Ganesha Rao, who was a leading lawyer of his times. Under his aegis, the practice established itself and developed as one of the pre-eminent and respected law offices in Karnataka.
In 1947, Mr. S. D. Ganesha Rao was joined by his son, Mr. S.G. Sundaraswamy. The firm was then called Ganesha Rao & Sundaraswamy. Within a short span of time, S.G.
