Total fraud (basis my limited knowledge). A true eq. partner would get close to 4-6% equity. A namesake eq. partner gets 0-0.9% eq.,as is the case of (e.g.) Ms. [...].

The fun part is that they may not even get the eq. in the main partnership. It could be one of the many sub/parallel partnerships.

In places like SAM and Khaitan, equity is all a nomenclature. Partners might not even know their equity unit number or value. Just something nice sounding to put in their VCs. Bah.

What’s the unit value at SAM? INR 500 or lesser after demonetisation. Also do these poor equity in name, ever get an equity upside??

Quite funny that someone who has been made equity by SAM is not known enough for legally India to figure out his practice area. What kind of equity partners are these.

Who are these people and what is their claim to fame. Have never even read anything about them till this news article. There is a difference between shadow equity and equity. Just a carrot to ensure that people don't leave. Just because they are now equity does it mean that their billing rates will go up? So basically as a client I was paying 10 rupees and tomorrow onwayrds I'll pay 20 for the same guy?

Senior level exits sets bad precedent & not a good message for juniors. Also clients may or can question leadership, hence overall negative news. Not good for business so some damage control.
