In London, UK associates used to mourn a lot on their work but in India the Indian Associates do not mourn nor go for cup of tea and biscuits ! Reply Link badger bait 2 October 2009 at 10:06 12,000 hours divided by 7 lawyers = 1715 hours per year p.a. since when was that ‘full utilisation’? Reply Link mary 2 October 2009 at 10:32 badger – the billable hour target is 1700…. Reply Link Anonymous 2 October 2009 at 13:46 Rajiv – they are not ‘indian associates’, they are the equivalent of paralegals and do paralegal work (despite being qualified Indian lawyers). The link to associates billables etc is incorrect. Reply Link Big Dave 2 October 2009 at 14:28 Rajiv S: big claps, tea and biscuits are for wimps. Reply Link Pravin Anand 3 October 2009 at 05:46 As per our discussions Reply Link Vinod Surana 3 October 2009 at 05:48 Vinod would you now like to discuss setting up an outsourcing centre in all that spare space in Chennai? We could target all the medium range firms in the UK and US who are ‘bleeding’ cost. Let me know.

Am i the only one who considers such practices in developing countries by reputable international law firms borderline exploitation. Lets face it, India despite its PR mush is teeming with poverty (last count, more than 40% of its population lived below the poverty line).
