Gopal Verma is a quintessential lawyer, loud, irascible and never afraid of a fight. Gopal Verma’s USP is that he instinctively knows the one point that will appeal to the Judges and he will home in on that. When you go to him for a conference, he will poke through the papers, asking you seemingly random questions in a seemingly interested manner. All the while, he is looking for that one “magic” point that will catch the Judges attention. When he gets hold of that “magic” point, he will start his argument with with that knowing that if that strong point does not convince the judges, nothing else will. He puts the point across with such force and conviction, that it usually sways the judges. He believes that the Indian legal system is highly complex, yet there are extremely simple solutions.
