Harish Salve, former Solicitor General of India, gets married for the third time

New Delhi: Distinguished former Solicitor General of India, Harish Salve, recently embarked on his matrimonial journey once again, exchanging vows with Trina in an opulent wedding ceremony. Remarkably, this marks Salve’s third foray into matrimony, as reported by India Today. His previous unions were with Meenakshi, his first wife, and Caroline Brossard in 2020.

Salve’s marriage to Meenakshi, his former spouse, came to an end after an enduring 38-year union, concluding in June 2020. This enduring partnership yielded two daughters, Sakshi and Saaniya.

The nuptial festivities witnessed the presence of an intimate gathering of close friends and family, graced by luminaries such as Nita Ambani, Lalit Modi, and Ujjwala Raut.

Harish Salve, the distinguished 68-year-old legal luminary who practices his craft at the hallowed halls of the Supreme Court, boasts a formidable track record, including his involvement in the landmark case of Kulbhushan Jadhav. Jadhav faced the gravest charges, sentenced to death by a Pakistani military tribunal on espionage allegations. Salve’s legal acumen was on full display as he valiantly represented Jadhav, a gesture that earned him widespread acclaim.

Among his esteemed clientele, one finds titans of industry, including the Tata Group, Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries, and ITC Group. Salve’s legal prowess was also evident in his role in the Krishna Godavari Basin gas dispute, where he contested against Anil Ambani’s Reliance Natural Resources Ltd.

Harish Salve first ascended to national prominence when he ardently argued the inaugural anti-dumping case to grace the chambers of the Supreme Court of India.

In a watershed moment in 2015, Salve took up the legal mantle in the high-profile Salman Khan hit-and-run case, stemming from an incident in 2002 that had resulted in a five-year prison sentence for the actor. Ultimately, Khan was absolved of all charges related to the 2002 hit-and-run and drunk-driving incident, following a momentous ruling by the Bombay High Court on December 10, 2015.

Further solidifying his legal eminence, Salve was honored with the prestigious appointment as the Queen’s Counsel for the courts of Wales and England in January.

Harish Salve, one of the nation’s most prolific legal practitioners, embarked on his illustrious journey in law by pursuing an LL.B. degree from Nagpur University. He ascended to the rank of senior advocate at the esteemed Delhi High Court in 1992, prior to his distinguished tenure as the Solicitor General of India from November 1999 to November 2002.
