RSG India says
"Shardul and Cyril Shroff are equally the best known lawyers in India and their firm continues to be a powerhouse of cutting edge Indian law.
"But while it remains the premier firm in India in terms of profile and capability, clients gave competitor AZB & Partners better reviews for the breadth of quality across the firm.
"However, Cyril Shroff is determined to make his firm a great, independent player, capable of competing with international firms when the market opens. In a great leap towards modernity, the Mumbai office adopted a modified lockstep in 2009 and also hired a chief operating officer.
"The Delhi and Mumbai offices are run as separate partnerships, although both remain dominated by the Shroff family."<ref>http://rsg-india.com/indian-law-firms/profiles/amarchand-mangaldas-suresh-a-shroff-co RSG India profile 2010</ref>
