The Office: Luthra & Luthra Law Offices has its office in Bharakhamba Road, New Delhi. It is a good place for work. There are many places nearby to see like India Gate, Indian Parliament and many more. The office is well connected with other parts of Delhi via Metro Train.
The Office Environment: The associates at Luthra and Luthra are very friendly, helpful and co-operative as well and are ready to hear you if you have any problem.
The entire atmosphere at the office is cool and friendly. All the teams at Luthra are very chilled out towards the interns. Even the partner I worked under was very friendly and approachable.
Experience: My experience at Luthra and Luthra law offices was pretty cool. As I was working with Competition Team I was given mainly research work over competition law and the work they had was good too.
Most of my work was assigned to me by the partner and hardly any associate assigned me any work. I was working under the team over the matter of switching cost and related topics and I had also researched over the dispute between two steel companies which is related to competition law only. I was given only research and not any drafting work.
Whenever you are free you are allotted work from other teams as the associates are always in search of an intern for loosening their workload. However, the associates always ask if you have any pending work before offloading.
My overall experience at L uthra and Luthra was good and I would love to intern there again.
Accommodation: I have no clue about accommodation as I was staying with relatives. But some interns there were staying at nearby areas and told that PG’s were easily available.
Good Things: The best part was that the Luthra and Luthra’ office is situated in Connaught Place area and there are many places nearby to hang out and many food joints where you can have your lunch or can order and have in the office. The office cafeteria serves very good lavazza coffee (free of cost) and delicious food and snacks!
If you are staying back in the office after the office hours than you can order dinner from anywhere and the firm is going to pay for that and you’ll also be provided cab to your home.
The law firm is accommodated with good library which gives scope of good legal research.
