Mint profiles Khaitan & Co Kolkata partner Pradeep Kumar (Pintu) Khaitan and his son Haigreve – one of the rainmakers in the firm’s Mumbai office:

From his 13th floor office in Mumbai’s One Indiabulls Centre, the practice that 42-year-old Khaitan leads for Khaitan and Co. is very different from, but also similar to, the one that his father Pradeep Kumar Khaitan is celebrated for. Pradeep Khaitan, based in Kolkata, is also a senior partner in the 101-year-old firm.

Many of India’s hoary business groups trace their origin back to Kolkata, and the city’s blue-blooded Marwaris are extremely particular about whom they deal with. If Mumbai’s business groups placed their trust through the 1990s and 2000s (and continue to do so, in some cases) in the famed 3Ks (Hemandra Kothari, Nimesh Kampani and Uday Kotak), then Kolkata’s business houses placed theirs in another K, “Pintu”, or Pradeep Kumar Khaitan.

Plus article delves into a few more of the Khaitan’s dealmaking connections and abilities. [Mint]

Economic Times looks at law firm equities and reports: Khaitan & Co, the firm of 58 partners, 300 lawyers and 101 years, retains 15 to 25 per cent of equity with the family, while at Amarchand Mangaldas (20 equity partners, 50 salaried partners, 555 lawyers, 95 years old) around 75 per cent equity is with the Shroff family, with mother Bharti Shroff holding lifetime equity, and the veto vote resting with the family.

Jyoti Sagar at JSA and Rajiv Luthra at Luthra & Luthra are the only Sagar and Luthra, respectively, at their firms. Sagar with Mumbai senior partner Berjis Desai holds under 13 per cent of equity in the 20-strong equity partnership of the 21-year-old firm. And while family is barred from joining JSA, strict observance of the rule resulting in retainers quitting if wanting to marry each other, at Luthra the bar to family is only in terms of automatic entry.

Speculation for AZB apparently goes that founding partner Zia Mody, amongst the 17 equity partners at the firm, holds 90 per cent of the firm’s equity, but she denies the rumours [ET]
