Happy Diwali / Issue 20

The Indian festival season is now in full swing and almost everyone seems to be celebrating already. We will therefore keep this one brief and joyous.

Clifford Chance and AZB have entered a new stage in their friendship as CC has opened up its training academy for a potentially limitless number of AZB associates. Expect queuing.

Read our interview with Clifford Chance's senior partner Stuart Popham to learn more about his vision for the firms' best friendship and the Indian legal market.

In the continuing fallout of the Hemant Sahai-Paras Kuhad merger a handful of partners and associates from the latter have now started their own Mumbai law firm called Vidhii Partners.

The in-house sector has begun its law school recruitment run this year, with ICICI Bank gearing up its hiring and law students feeling optimistic about job prospects.

We have also conducted exclusive research on the top IPO dealmakers this financial year to date. Surprising few, Amarchand is out on top. But Khaitan & Co and Luthra & Luthra too are performing well and the chasing pack and international firms are picking up more than just scraps.

Luthra & Luthra is also building on its previous league table lead in the projects space, closing two more large project financings this week.

Finally, two law students will be going to Oxford on the Indian Rhodes scholarship, an award where Indian lawyers have traditionally always done very well, despite the harrowing interview process.

And with all of the good legal news over for this week, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support in reading Legally India.

And, of course, we would like to wish you all a very happy Diwali!

The final, final piece of good news: we are migrating to a faster, stronger and better web server this weekend as our old server buckled several times this week under the increasing traffic. Apologies for any potential inconvenience.
