She is busy mentoring junior partners at the country's biggest law firm. In February 2014, Pallavi Shroff's team managed to get a stay on the Competition Commission of India (CCI) order that levied a Rs 1,773 crore penalty on Coal India for allegedly abusing its dominant position. This was CCI's first order against a PSU and the largest fine imposed on a single entity.

Last year, her team had also got a stay on the CCI order imposing a Rs 6,300 crore penalty on 10 cement companies for alleged cartelisation in pricing. Shroff also got a stay on the CCI's probe into alleged cartelisation by Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum in fixing petrol prices.

She now wants to see more women in her law firm. "The beauty of being a woman is that you get to play different roles. It is fun to be a wife, mother, grandmother, professional and leader."
