Serving in Richmond Indira Sharma concentrates her practice on commercial litigation in state and federal courts with an emphasis on real estate litigation and contract disputes. She also represents clients in a broad range of other litigation disputes involving class actions, commercial leases, estates, environmental issues and non-compete agreements. Some of her notable representations include: Defending one the Mid-Atlantic region's largest real estate brokerage companies in over 35 real-estate related lawsuits and administrative proceedings involving allegations of professional malpractice, fraud, negligence and/or breach of contract against the company and its real estate brokers/agents. Representing a multinational real estate services firm in connection with filing lawsuits for breach of management agreements. Representing an estate valued in excess of $3 million and the personal representatives of the estate in a caveat proceeding. Defending a national finance company in multiple consumer class actions each seeking multimillion dollar awards.In addition to her law practice, Indira is passionate about finding solutions that encourage women and underrepresented minority attorneys to stay at their firms and in the practice of law. She puts this passion into action as vice chair of Saul Ewing’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee and her past work on the steering committee that formed the firm’s Women’s Development Initiative. Outside of work, Indira values giving back to the community and, to that end, mentors high school students through the Community Law in Action program in Baltimore City. As a testament to her outstanding work for CLIA, she was appointed to its Board of Directors in 2013 and chosen as chair less than two years later. She also serves as mentoring chair for the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Maryland and on multiple committees for the Maryland State Bar Association and the Bar Association of Baltimore City.
