This government is only focussed on 'taking' when will the 'giving' happen?

He does not need to. That's for his underpaid minions to do.

Having closely shadowed Mr. Luthra over the last year, I feel given his larger-than-life personality, people often ignore how balanced and well thought-out his inputs are on regulatory issues. And of course, being a Managing Partner, he wouldn't be expected to draft out or dictate legal opinions, would he?

I have not understood this argument which I have heard many times. Why shouldn't the managing partner give opinions on tricky issues or situations? Isn't he or she likely to be the best placed to give advice on such issues? Why should they become just become the 'mareketing head' of the firm?

If you read my comment carefully, you will find that I have expressed he does do so. Beng the senior most, he OKs the opinion. Unless you meant that he should also churn out the first draft.

It is good know that law graduate from Chaudhary Charan Singh University heads a big law firm (Haward was a one week course) and that National Law school graduates from Bangalore and Jodhpur are working for him and are expected to draft and dictate opinions for him.

Now at least we will have some new stories with bragging rights. Old ones had turned stale.

Kian, law firm partners are routinely appointed to committees. Just wondering if i'm missing its relevance. Does the firm try harder to get these gigs? Is there something out of the ordinary about such appointments?
