India's Fox Mandal and Little & Co. have merged to create the country's largest law firm. Fox Mandal Little boasts 250 attorneys, 38 of which are partners. The merged firm circumvented a restriction that normally limits Indian firms to just 20 partners by adopting a plan to create multiple partnerships depending on location. Fox Mandal was attracted to the 50-attorney Little & Co. because of its capital markets practice and strong Mumbai presence.
