‘Great marker’: IndusLaw promotes all-women quartet to partner + 13 associates (also mostly women!)

The promotion boosts Indus’ partner gender ratio up to 22% (plus adds a strong pipeline of female talent)

IndusLaw has promoted four of its lawyers to partnership, as well as four to principal associates and nine to senior associate, according to its press release.

Senior partner Suneeth Katarki commented in the release: “One of the joys of building an institution is seeing people grow and evolve personally and professionally. This year it’s particularly satisfying to see so many women climbing the ladder of professional growth and excellence.”

Senior partner Avimukt Dar added: “We are delighted to note that all the Partners, 75% of the Principal Associates and nearly 90% of the Senior Associates promoted this year across India are women. This is a great marker for the firm and the legal services industry overall.”

This all-women partnership round will do wonders for what had until now been a bit of a skewed gender ratio in Indus’ partnership of 31 partners, of whom only 4 were women. This latest promotion now grows IndusLaw to 36 partners (with 8 women - or 22%) and 156 fee-earners, including partners, across four offices.
