In this episode of The Corner Office Conversations, we take forward the discussion with the legal icon Shardul S. Shroff. With COVID-19 having disrupted the functioning of law firms, Shroff shares valuable insights for industry newcomers to face the crisis head on.
He believes that embracing change is the foremost ingredient for both newcomers and veterans to sail through any kind of turbulence. With technology taking over almost all industries in the post-pandemic world, it is important for law firms to embrace those aspects of technology relevant to the law. A crucial point that Shroff emphasizes is the need for professionals to demonstrate that they are worth investing in.
On the amendments made to the IBC in the face of the pandemic earlier this year, Shroff believes that rather than suspending proceedings, it is important for the government to invest in creating capacities and infrastructure to manage the case load of insolvency and that halting it would create a massive backlog.
