Mumbai: Law Firm

On June 21, the watchman of this building at Nariman Point came to check if all the electrical mains had been switched off in this office space that was once crammed with lawyers, but is now completely empty. That day, the partners of the firm handed over the keys of the space they had been renting for three years. The pandemic has hit revenues hard and in order to sustain the salaries of their employees, the company decided to give up their office to save on rent.
