“forefront of our corporate practice and has worked on some of our most challenging transactions“ & still you (or firm) don’t make partner. How is counsel different from partner? Any insights, please?

Low bargaining power hence, lower designation and pay.
Too good to be an Associate anymore.

Being a partner is not for everybody. Being a counsel allows you to focus on legal work and execution, without worrying about firm administration, business development, new clients and so on. It is well suited for people who do not want to be on a partnership track, and there are several very happy and satisfied counsels.

To be honest, TTA does not have a corporate practice. It is an out and out banking & finance practice. The attrition has been very very high lately. TTA does not remain a great place to work anymore. Internal politics, favouritism, prefential treatment to a select few is now the new norm in TTA. If I am not wrong, almost 10-15 people have left TTA in the last few months. That speak volumes about their ability to retain good people anymore. Sonali and Rahul should buck up.
