Well, the Advocates Act recognises only individual advocates. A partnership firm or a company cannot be an advocate. However, rules of BCI allows partnership among advocates.
Thus advocates can make partnership and do practice under partnership arrangement. Registration is not required. However, for convenience in business transaction, the firm may get itself registered under Partnership Act and also apply to Income Tax to be assesed for tax as a partnership.

"To do something", "a right to do", and legal recognition are different things.
What is the meaning of practice. Say, a person is advicing on corporate law, no bar. Anybody can advice. Even on this forum, people do advice. There is no bar in advicing anybody on any issue. If that practice, any body can practice anything.
However, there should not be any misrepresentation. One may be practicing a corporate affairs advisory, but if he is not a CA- he should not represent himself as CA. Further, certain documents are required to be certified by certain professionals like CA or CS or Chartered Engineer. Everybody, including practicing professionals do avail their services for such certification, even that person can avail.
