He was a pioneer and expert in the country on Maritime and Admiralty Law, and conducted the first Admiralty Case at The Orissa High Court and drafted the rules of the Court on Maritime Jurisdiction, before arguing on several matters relating to The Admiralty Law in The Supreme Court of India. Due to his vast experience and expertise on the subject, he was a regular speaker at various Conferences on Maritime Security and Anti-Piracy Conventions not just across various National Law Universities in India but also abroad – at the USA, England, France, Germany and Australia. He was also instrumental in the establishment of the Centre for Maritime Law and conceptualising the International Maritime Arbitration Moot ? both at National Law University, Odisha.
