Norton Rose hunts for Indian trainees
Matthew has clearly never worked with an Indian law firm! Stop insulting UK lawyers.Uk law firms and UK lawyers are world beaters, that is why the Indian graduates are keen to work for them.They would not be world beating firms if their lawyers were all the useless lazy idiots.
Matthew seems to think they are, trained on courses which are easy and if they were not willing to "adapt to new environments"(so how did they become global then Matt,hey?).
Most Indian lawyers I have interviewed say they want to work for a good UK firm precisely because they want to do the "offshore structuring" you mention.
There are plenty of lawyers with different cultural and ethnic backgrounds working in law firms, quite rightly so. But it is wrong to say that you "want more Indian lawyers", the ethnic background is irrelevant, what matters is how good the lawyer isand how suited he or she is to the role available. So I agree with Paul, the guy from Norton Rose has put his foot in his mouth.
