Sarthak Advocates has become the first Indian law firm to sign the Mindful Business Charter (MBC), a collaboration between leading banks and law firms to promote mental health and well-being at workplaces.
Other signatories include Barclays, Goldman Sachs, Clifford Chance, DLA Piper, Allen and Overy. MBC aims to create an ecosystem that facilitates reduction of avoidable stress at the workplace.
“In present times, law firms cannot avoid long transactions and hectic work hours,” said partner Mani Gupta.
“An initiative to resonate with these circumstances was the need of the hour. Commitment towards mental health and well-being of lawyers working with the firm has always been our priority. We hope that other stakeholders of the industry show the power of collaboration to foster change.”
