IndusLaw keeps growing from strength to strength. With selective and wonderful partner hires over the last few years, the firm seems to be on a consistent growth path. I keep hearing about the good work culture and about the mature and supportive management from my peers at the firm.

Wishing the very best !

Not surprising.. with the culture at WG deteriorating and Mr. Dhawal Mehta functioning as if he is the owner of the firm.. this move is not at all surprising...
