HSA Advocates Restructures and Hires Kunal Rajpal as First Principal Associate
As part of the Firm’s Vision 2021 strategy, HSA Advocates (HSA) has undergone several changes over the last year, and has significantly expanded its geographical presence and capacity. HSA has also undertaken significant institutional restructuring to further strengthen the existing robust framework that had been assiduously built over the last 13 years. The restructuring is aimed at facilitating and enabling the transformational growth that HSA is undergoing consistent with its vision 2021.
The ongoing restructuring eschews mere cosmetic changes and creates opportunities for internal growth and competition. After careful deliberation, one such measure is the re-calibration of the hierarchy of our fee earners so that there is real as well as perceptible growth in individual careers and creates aspirational opportunities amongst them. The re-calibration includes, inter alia, creation of the Principal Associate (PA) designation, which is intended to elevate our performers and groom them for a future partnership role.
In this direction, Kunal Rajpal, former Additional Vice President – Group Legal at Reliance ADA Group, has joined the Firm as the first PA. Kunal joined the firm’s Mumbai office in January 2017, as part of the firm’s Corporate Commercial practice.
The firm is a strong proponent of nurturing leadership and we are looking forward to a robust and diverse partnership collegium, consistent with the firm’s 2021 vision.
The firm strives to create an enabling environment and be the workplace of choice. One facet of this vision is the firm’s CSR policy that has been institutionalised and structured. The CSR policy not only recognises, but rewards the commitment to and participation by the members in such structured CSR initiatives. We would like to be recognised as responsible citizens that give back to society in our own modest ways.
