what is the basis for LI to chose or decline to publish deal updates? Just curious. Does it depends on the stature of the firms involved?

No, it's a bit random but here are a number of parameters that make it into the mix:

- how many firms involved? Do we know all partners?
- how big is the deal?
- how interesting is the sector / deal / cross-border?
- is it an exclusive deal?
- how recent is it?
- do we have any other deals currently sitting there awaiting publication?
- has it been reported in the business papers?
- is it a deal by a start-up or other firm we haven't reported on very often before?

So supposedly AZB and Trilegal ditched the billion dollar Lanco deal and gave it to HSA so that they could do this one?

Correct. Deal value is not always directly proportionate to legal fees earned. Actually, deal value is not always a direct reflection of deal complexity either. But you already know this but still want to stir up the pot anyway... because you can!

But the deal value certainly impacts the legal fee. Nobody would want to spend high just to buy peanuts.

1.5 million is approx 10 crores... Young lawyers will realize this only when the legal bubble bursts.. Let foreign law firms enter india who would only hire 5+ years experienced and freshers fir research and others would cry...
