Samvad: Partners (“the Firm”) is committed to promoting a workplace that is free of all forms of discrimination and promotes an inclusive work environment that values and accepts the diverse cultural and social backgrounds of its employees and lawyers. All recruitment and advancement related decisions of the Firm are based on merit, qualification, abilities and performance. The Firm makes reasonable accommodations to employees and lawyers with known disabilities.
The ability to be gender-diverse is hard coded in the DNA of Samvād: Partners. Our gender diversity ratio is probably the best in the country, presently. While not intentional, we are proud that nearly 83% of our partners and 58% of our lawyers are women! This makes us unique not just among Indian, but also global law firms. Legally India in their ‘Annual review report 2019’ has recognised our Firm as one among the largest law firms to stand out in their women to men ratios. The detailed ‘Women in Indian law firms: In a growing minority’ study can be found at: https://www.legallyindia.com/print-edition/2019-inlegal-50.
The Firm has curated and conducted several customised ‘Diversity and Cultural Sensitisation Programmes’ for its clients taking into account client specifications so as to tailor the needs of the workshop to adapt to the larger cultural requirements of the specific workplace.
