India in grip of talent war as FoxMandal forges ahead with recruitment drive
Dear Annonymous Applauder, I don't follow your logic. Please could you explain the (non-existent) correlation between international firms hiring top graduates from India's best law school versus Indian firms hiring "international lawyers" (who, if you look carefully, all seem to have names that suspiciously resemble Indian names - Indians having had enought of living abroad and wanting to come back to India perhaps?)
In what way is this a "fight back" by Indian firms? And what is there to "fight back" in the first place? It's a free market, international firms compete with Indian firms - perhaps the fact that Indian lawyers choose to move to international firms (and usually earn not very much more than what they would make at Amarchand or Luthra - when you factor in living costs and higher tax rates, that is true, at least for those who move to UK firms) says something about the lower levels of professionalism and working practices at Indian firms?
Before making cliched statements about fighting back and plundering, it might be good idea for you to think about what you write - after all, as a lawyer, words are what we are expected to understand and use. This is not Lagaan and no one is being exploited.
Regards, one of the plundered
