Should I work at a law firm or should I be the white-shirt-black-robe donning litigator? And hey, doesn’t a litigation law firm give me both of that?
Should you as a law student/young lawyer choose core litigation or work at a corporate law firm? What are you best suited for?
What are the pros and cons of both careers? What does the ‘day-in-a-life’ of both the career options look like? How does one shift from a law firm to practice and vice versa?
Join us on April 25 (Saturday), 5 PM-6.15 PM as two professionals with experience both in litigation and working at law firms debate this out.
Vijay Purohit is an Associate Partner with P&A Law Offices, Mumbai and heads the Mumbai Dispute Resolution Practice of the Firm. He graduated from the first batch of GNLU in 2009.
After working with two law firms for around a couple of years, he moved to his home town Jodhpur in Rajasthan and was associated with Dr. Sachin Acharya as a Chamber Junior and also worked as an independent counsel.
After working for nearly 3.5 years, his creative calling brought him back to the law firm ecosystem and he was able to fit-in after some efforts and because of working with some great people. All throughout, he has worked in the Dispute Resolution/Litigation domain.
Rajvendra Sarswat completed his law from NLU Jodhpur in 2006. He has worked at Kanga & Company, Mumbai (3 years), as a Legal Head of Temptation Foods Limited (1.5 years), and as a Senior Associate at Majmudar & Company, Mumbai.
