Sinjini Saha gets promotion at old-school New York firm in LondonSinjini Saha gets promotion at old-school New York firm in London

Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft special counsel Sinjini Saha, who is a 2004 graduate of NLSIU Bangalore, has been promoted to the US law firm’s partnership in London.

Saha had begun her career at Delhi-based Daulet-Singh & Associates (which later turned into Platinum Partners) and had moved to Herbert Smith in 2006. Between 2007 and 2008 she completed an LLM at Columbia Law School as a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar, and then moved to Simpson Thacher Bartlett until 2015.

She joined Cadwaladers in April 2015, focusing on financial restructuring and private equity, working on leveraged buyouts and other sale and investment transactions.

Earlier today we reported that another 2004 graduate from India - Amit Kataria (Delhi University) - had been promoted to partner at another US firm - Morrison Foerster - in Hong Kong. He too had laterally joined the firm he made partner around April 2015.

Sir, it is good you highlight such things but we would also like you to highlight alumni of NLS (and other NLUs) who are in alternative careers like teaching, activism etc. This site only gives attention to corporate careers and ignores other such careers.

Sinjini is a good lawyer
Cadwalader is not a white shoe firm

For what it's worth, Wikipedia said it is... Does anyone have an authoritative list of white shoe firms?

I think you can do better than that Kian. It's a journalistic term so you're unlikely to find an objective definition but general perception in the US tends to include:
Weil, Simpson Thacher, Sul Crom, Cleary, Davis Polk, Cravath, Skadden and possibly Paul Weiss and Latham. Definitely not Cadders or Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler (as per Wiki)!

What about the American Bar Association Journal that calls it a "white-shoe megafirm". Is that better?

Or Forbes?

With female partners being only 14% of the total and the firm's average PEP being USD 2.7 million, it is a huge achievement not many have been able to achieve. Congratulations.

Also proud to note that Sinjini is one of only 5 female equity partners in Cadwalader.
