His vision can be found in a recent interview conducted by Dinis Guarda. 

“I come from a very humble background. My parents have always pushed me to become better and gave me everything they could, including the best education in one of the best schools in India. When I finished school I moved to Cardiff (UK) to study law and this gave me an incredible opportunity to understand and learn how law works in different countries and cultures, including visiting trips in Washington DC and Brussels. 

After that I moved back to India and I was a bit confused, I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I went to my father for advice and after a meaningful chat, I decided to start my own business focusing on providing legal services”. 

“Digital transformation in law: There has been a digital revolution in India. India was one of the first countries that started promoting digital currencies. If we talk about the legal industry and boosted by the COVID-19 pandemic, court processes are being changed to adapt to this new reality without losing performance. The government is promoting digital documentation and online court hearings”. 

“Overall, the legal industry is not a digitized sector. There are many potentials there, like smart contracts and blockchain, but it is a very traditional, highly restricted industry. However, technology can help, especially the business side of law. In my law firm, for example, we are now doing meetings with clients and partners online and that is a trend we think we are going to keep doing after the pandemic. One of the suggestions I would give to any person, company that wants to come to India and do business here is to partner or collaborate with someone that is already settled in India because it will provide a more accurate market research and insights about how things work there”.
