Managing Partners Message

A busy summer of more or less continuous travel for me has ended with a tremendous learning experience in Madrid as I spend three days with an interesting network of mid sized law firms that provide a viable and economic alternative to large juggernaut law firms of the west. These mid sized law firms have the skill, experience, professionalism and personalized service to match the offerings of the large firms but they have neither the muscle nor the market spend. They represent an excellent alternative to those seeking cost economies without sacrificing quality. For more details about an excellent lawyers network, you may wish to check out the website www.E-Iure.com.  

 In this issue of Ensouth, we deviate from our usual mix of corporate legal and topical matters as we reflect on three headline hitters in early summer, two of them cases of crimes in high places:

 

1. Ms. Jessica Lal died a senseless death at the hands of a political super brat because she declined to serve him a drink. We ask if it is realistic to expect a conviction in this, or any other celebrity, murder case.

2. Indian ruling party president Mrs. Sonia Gandhi's resignation from Parliament in the wake of the allegation that she was in breach of a ban on parliamentarians holding offices of profit set off a tsunami the effects of which are still being felt at the time of publication of this issue of Ensouth. Last month, the President of India returned a bill granting immunity to legislators from holding certain offices of profit. The government has now resent the bill back to the President without change. As this confrontation between the President of India and the ruling government develops, we examine the whole issue of political spoils of office.

3. Last summer, his own brother killed eminent politican Mr. Pramod Mahajan because he did not adequately receive largess that is the natural bonanza of every political uncle, brother and nephew. We examine if Killer Praveen Mahajan can claim legal insanity and escape punishment.

4. We continue an off road journey that started with an exploration of Lhasa followed by a drive to the beautiful Zamdrok lake, through Gyandse and Shigatse to Mount Everest's north face base camp and down to Nepal. Part Two of this journey continues the discovery of Lhasa.

5. Finally, in continuance of the successful interactions we have had with the business community so far, we share with you our immediate workshop schedule.
