Luthra & Luthra has elevated Pranjal Bora, Vikrant Kumar and Moushami Joshi to its partnership and made up two managing associates and 19 senior associates in a slew of internal promotions last weekend.

Delhi construction and infrastructure specialist Bora, Delhi international trade lawyer Joshi and M&A Bangalore lawyer Kumar were promoted to the partnership, while Manmeet Singh and Nayana Jhawar were promoted to managing associate level.

The firm has been looking to expand its presence in Bangalore.

Rajiv Luthra said: "This time last year we had 26 partners and with Manan Lahoty’s promotion during the year and the induction of three new promotions we're now 30 partners in total."

Joshi explained: "International trade law practice is quite new to the firm in the sense that was started about 4-5 years back and we have seen it grow exponentially since then.

"I would like to consolidate both the important areas of our practice i.e. anti-dumping and subsidies and government advisories. We want to maintain that balance going forward because I think that is very important for any international trade practice."

Joshi said that her team now consisted of one managing associate, two senior associates and three associates.

The firm has also promoted 19 associates to senior associate level and recognised three special awards.

Senior associate Shishir Jose Vayttaden received the new "managing partners solitaire" award for writing a book on takeover regulations while working. For fee-earning and client-service related achievements senior associate Jitesh Shahni received the new 'achiever of the year' award and senior associate Aparna Mittal was awarded the 'beyond the call of duty' prize.

The announcements were made during an annual off-site visit to Beijing, China (pictured).

"We took over the Hardrock cafe in Beijing, including the stage and danced and sang all night," said Rajiv Luthra.

The firm is also currently in the process of finalising its conversion to a new system of partnership remuneration, which it announced in June of last year.

"We have been exploring the lockstep model for a while and have received mixed reactions from people in the past. We're also consulting an international expert to advise us," said Rajiv Luthra.

"The conversion to this model is fairly easy but rather than reinventing the wheel we would like to examine the concept in detail and discuss the pros and cons with all concerned before taking the decision," he noted. "We want to have a more holistic and modified lockstep so that it’s a win-win for all."
