Ravi has been involved in reported cases in a wide range of jurisdictions, including England, the Caribbean, the United States, India and North Africa, and undertaken internships in Dubai and Egypt. He was previously the judicial assistant to the President of the QBD in the Court of Appeal, where he assisted The Rt Hon Sir Anthony May.
