After weeks of uncertainty, Luthra to welcome postponed 2020 batch by November (rather than 2021)

After having postponed the 2020 new recruits’ joining dates to 2021, L&L Partners has now promised to welcome all freshers by 12 November 2020 after the continuing and unresolved management turmoil at the firm had left hires on tenterhooks for weeks now.

In a Zoom call held last evening between managing partner Rajiv Luthra and nearly 50 joinees, Luthra assured the recruits that their hiring would be moved forward, after the firm had announced in September that their start date would not happen before 2021 (although a few had been ‘onboarded’ earlier).

Luthra confirmed the November 2020 date in a later email to the freshers, stating: “As mentioned, owing to the continuing pandemic, you will work from home, until you are informed of your physical reporting day at the office.

“I look forward to welcoming you in person soon, as well as, to us working together towards further enriching our institution.”

We have reached out to Luthra for comment earlier this evening but have had no response.

Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas’ incoming batch of around 78 freshers recruited to start in 2020 remains scheduled to only begin in 2021, though some online onboarding programmes are in the works.
