The Khaitan & Co Family
At Khaitan & Co, we cherish the relationships we have fostered over the years with our members, both past and present. We attribute our growth and success to the contributions of all the stakeholders of the Khaitan & Co family. Although they may no longer be part of the Khaitan family, our bond remains the same.
KConnect – Our Global Alumni Network
We would love to stay connected with our alumni across various parts of the world. To strengthen this relationship further, we have formed an alumni initiative – KConnect. KConnect is designed to serve as a platform for our alumni to reconnect with us, stay updated about our developments, benefit from our learnings, share best practices, register for events (including city wise alumni meets) and to celebrate our professional achievements.
"Khaitan & Co was my first workplace as I was taken on board fresh out of M.Sc. My colleagues and seniors took the time to teach me almost everything I know about patents. Also, the camaraderie among co-workers ensured that there was never a dull day at work. My 7 years at Khaitan & Co have helped shape me into the professional I am today and for this I will always be grateful."
"My journey as a lawyer began at Khaitan & Co, and it would not be an exaggeration to say that I wouldn't be the person that I am today, in terms of knowing both my capabilities and limitations, were it not for the experiences I gained over the foundational years of my career with the firm's direct tax and private client practice. The diversity of work at the firm afforded me the confidence to be a truly global professional, and served as the perfect springboard to help me transition to another geography. While I hope to be able to cross paths with the firm professionally going forward, I know that the firm will always be family."
