I sent my CV and Cover Letter on their official email Id mumbai[at]ksandk.com.
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
On my first day, I was greeted by the Firm’s Admin Mrs. Saher Ansari who briefed me about all the dos and don’ts of the firm.
Next, I was seated in the interns’ room/chamber. It isn’t a very big office but is pretty cosy and since it is located on the 6th floor, you can always enjoy the view of the conference room.
As soon as I was introduced to the Associates I started getting work. The best thing is they take your work very seriously and wouldn’t get annoyed even if you bug them with your silly doubts every now and then.
In the course of my internship, I mostly got work from Kulin Sir, who is a very cool associate there. He asked me about my areas of interest and gave me work accordingly. I mostly worked on Corporate Law, IPR and Tax Law and also got a few documents to draft.
During internship, you’ll also be asked to write a research paper or article on any subject of your interest which, if approved, would be published on the firm’s website.
Overall, the quality of work that you get here is good and comprehensive. The associates give you work from different areas which do not let you get bored with the work.
At the same time, they understand that Interns are Humans. So, they do not overburden you with the quantity of work. They sure will give you deadlines but not impossible ones.
Very chilled out work culture. People here are very friendly and very professional.
You can have Coffee as many times as you want.
The quality of work is nice.
All your travel expenses for Firm’s work are reimbursed.
I didn’t find anything bad per se. But if at all I’d have to point out a bad thing that would be getting no stipend.
Accommodation, commuting to the office
I was staying in Marine Lines which is very close to the Office at Nariman Point. I first used to take a black and yellow taxi but the taxi drivers would be very reluctant to go to such a close spot. So I soon switched to Best Buses which would drop me to the nearest bus stand that is Mantralaya.
Anything else, what you did to chill out, lessons learnt etc
If you want to chill out there are a lot of eating places nearby. There is a row of food stalls right in front of the office building. You can also go to a few restaurants around that serve food at reasonable rates.
The overall vibe of the place is quite nice. Be it at the office or around the place. Marine Drive is at a stone throw distance from the office. You can always take a break to stroll around that area. My experience of working in King Stubb and Kasiva was very pleasant. I got to learn a lot of things and had a great time.
I am an army girl! In a barbie world! Keeper of 5 dogs. On a diet for now. Sometimes I might make punctuation mistakes, but I make up for it by bringing in a crore or two extra. What's more important, a misplaced comma, or a well-placed crore?
