Research by Bar and Bench shows that 58% of those joining law firms were recruited by these firms. Listed in order of numbers of graduates taken on in 2014, these law firms are: Amarchand, Luthra & Luthra, Khaitan & Co, Trilegal and (tying) AZB and Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan. The Bar and Bench research is a large sample, rather than being a comprehensive review - so the actual figures could be somewhat different. 

Outsourcers

The law firms are taking 36% of graduates. About 20% are joining the civil service. In-house accounts for 12% and outsourcers are taking about 7%. Pangea 3 is the biggest recruiter among the outsourcers, followed by Quis Lex. Source: Bar and Bench
