  • If UK firms can hire trainees from India then that's good for business. Many come with good contacts and will return to be good ambassadors for the firm. It won't be long before the legal services market in India properly opens up to UK law firms.

  • Why on earth are these firms looking overseas when there is a surplus of talent over here?

  • Imagine for a moment if jurisdictions like Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai decided to implement protectionist rules. What if the several British lawyers working in these places had to return and start competing for jobs in London. Wonder if Michael Burbidge and his likes have ever given much thought to this.

  • Globalisation is loved as long as it pertains to huge multinationals making exorbitant profits in the markets of developing countries. But, when it comes to what the developing countries have to offer - a highly skilled workforce, developed countries cry fowl. I suggest all the people who are against recruitment of non- EU people go on a strike agains globalisation.

  • To the people saying Oxford and Cambridge are not what it once was.I assure you they still are and firms are much more likely to employ Oxbridge graduates than others.
    There are two types of people in the UK.
    The Oxbridge material and the rest.

  • Arbitrary caps are absurd!! Why this country would cap highly skilled migration is beyond me.

  • The Indian market presents real growth opportunity, not only for law firms, but for UK business as a whole. Recruits (British born or Indian) that truly understand, or at least show a propensity to learn about Indian business culture, will be an asset to UK law firms. In return, these recruits will be rewarded with opportunities to get involved in some of the most significant deals that lie ahead as India becomes a global economic powerhouse. The reason why firms will want to recruit, in a small number, from India, is because there is obviously a lack of skills needed to make these opportunities a reality in the domestic market.

    British Indians make up around 1.5% of UK's population but contribute >4% of GDP. In addition to large corporations, it is the Indian business community that will be developing the export led growth that David Cameron is advocating. Recruits with Indian and UK market awareness will help this process. Finally, Indian companies are increasingly buying up UK plc - again, those that intrinsically understand Indian business culture will simply be in demand.

    If you were a client involved in Indian inbound or outbound investment, then who better to offer advice? Michael Burbridge types? I think not!
