Work environment and the people
The work environment at the firm is very positive as all the associates, paralegals and even the partners at firm are very welcoming and you can reach out to them if you are facing any kind of problem with the work assigned to you.
One of the highlights of my internship was that I got to closely work with the Managing Partner of the firm Mr. Vikrant Rana. He is a very humble and knowledgeable person.
I was in the Trademarks Department and every person in my department was so sweet and fun to work with. I always got a lot work and every time anyone assigned me any work they sat down with me and explained me what was to be done in details.
Another amazing thing was that I didn’t monotonous work all the time, every now and then my HOD Ms. Pooja Thakur kept inquiring if I was getting different type of work or not and what kind of work would I like to do.
