Chief Legal Officer
Sistema Shyam TeleServices Ltd.
Known for her ability to be strategic, anticipate issues and estimate risks including safety, security, reputational, regulatory and legal, Neera Sharma has the ability “to see around corners” and deliver what’s best for the business. Her qualification extends beyond legal expertise to broader business and industry knowledge and financial acumen. She has been acting increasingly as legal and business advisors to shareholders, CEO and senior leadership team and has drawn upon broader business knowledge and a wider skill set, having the legal pedigree - deep knowledge of the law and regulations, negotiating skills and specializations such as securities law. In her case, differentiation comes from being, in the words of one general counsel, “more than just a lawyer.” She is known for her good & tested judgment quality, which involves sophistication to properly evaluate and weigh multiple inputs and impacts of any particular decision or course of action. She has experience both in dealing hands-on with complicated, messy matters that require consideration of compliance, litigation, business processes, etc., and in leading complex, cross-functional teams and assignments.
