My main task was to help all lawyers in their research. I was summoned when needed and given loads of research work on various topics like Indian Stamp act, Income Tax act, Indian Contract act, Companies act etc. I was asked to find Judgments using Manupatra, SCC etc.
I used to hate corporate governance and company law and firmly maintained that it isn't my cup of tea- mainly because I had never tried learning the practical aspects of it. But, I would ever, ever be grateful to PXV for flipping my interest in it around by 180 degree. By Aanchal Arora; Campus
First impression as already said the office was really difficult to locate. No such formalities were there. The partner came to know that a new intern has joined and assigned work straightaway. There is no need to know the name, college, year ( useless formalities eh)
For instance, if a couple's heading for divorce but one of them WANTS to make it work, would you or would you not recommend that they go in for Mediation? I was stunned by how important simple things affect your judgement of a party, especially matrimonial ones.
The work environment was very chilled out. Everyone in the office had lunch together. Partners had a separate room for that. The lunch time conversation would range from complex corporate case law discussions to even review of a newly released movie. All the Associates were young and very friendly. They really do pay attention to

All the co-interns had to bug associates for work. There was no proper channel for assignment of work. Some days the interns had to sit idle because even after bugging they were not given work. Moreover, there were too many interns.

Phoenix Legal is primarily a corporate law firm dealing extensively with M&A, JV's, Procedural Law Framework, Arbitration etc etc. I got work mostly in the above areas mentioned along with small research based on licensing requirements in various other procedural laws.

I hadn't even studied company law in detail when I started interning but Ms Anuradha was patient and gave me daily assignments to make me aware of the law. She would test how much I want to do and would give me work accordingly. Other associates are kind of snooty specially the younger ones),
