The author reflects on the case taking place between Herbert Smith and its own Indian associates. He explains that the case stems from the firm's decision to put these associates into an integration course, with its intention to make associates feel more loved. To them, however, the course would lead to stigmatization. Because of the event, the author claims that British firms like Herbert Smith are vulnerable to facing constant fight against accusations but they can definitely avoid them.
