Provide a brief overview of your work domain.
Besides LLB, what are the additionalaccomplishments?
Portray the chronoscope of your progressive journey.Who are your major clients?
My firstclient was TATA Johnson Control Automotives Ltd. Thenceforth; I got contractsfrom diverse consultancies related to legal and statutory compliances forindustry-specific projects. Our major clients include TATA AutoComp SystemsLtd, TATA TOYO Radiator Ltd, RCCL, MM Forgings Ltd, Escorts, TM AutomotiveSeating System Ltd, IMRB International etc.
What challenges did you face at the initial stage ofyour career? And, how did you overcome from them?
When Istarted my practice, people did not rely upon because I am a newcomer and havenot much experience. Many people discouraged me for adopting this profession,but, I was adamant to adopt it and to win at all conditions.
What led you to incorporate this consultancy firm?
Iexperienced that the knowledge of the bureaucratic system is integral and inU.P. and Uttarakhand, there is a vacuum of Law firms having the expertise forgiving entire legal cover for industry-specific projects. Because of that,companies hired different consultants for numerous tasks. With a vision topresent all solutions through a single system, we come up with thiscorporation, we are providing unified cover for industry-specific projects asall legal and statutory compliances and the clients.
Does the law vary from sector to sector? Do thelegal questions facing various industries differ and how do you take them on?
Yes. Everyindustry has its specific zone as white, green, orange and red as per theirstatus. It depends on their production process, HR slabs, project costs etc. Wekeep all the aspects in mind and provide the legal cover by giving theconsultancy to the company/project.
What unique approach do you bring with your firm?
I believe inoutcome-based strategies and bring the same to my organization.There is nohierarchy and work from any place.We work by setting up the timelines and flyto meet them.
What is your point of view about the Indian legalsystem and its difficulties? And, what is your take on its legal education?
India legalsystem is performing in its best strength. But, there is lacuna of late justice. It happens, due to limited numbersof judges and lacs of cases. Insufficient appointment of judges is a seriousconcern and because of that decisions take time, and people have to suffer. Ithink Legal Education must be incorporated in course from highersecondary.
What have been the key that opened the door of yoursuccess?
My faithfulnature, using all knowledge and effort without thinking about small or big andgiving my best in every moment is the primary factors of my progress.
Define law in one line.
Rule toregulate the behaviour

I wake up at 6:00 am and do exercise,thereafter take tea with family members. At 9:00, I move for office and gothrough the files, reach court at 10: 30 and after appearing in cases, I comeback to the office and discuss with the team about the work progression ofvarious consultancy projects and also meet with clients. Before going home Ilike to take an hour with some shots of squash. The day full of challenges and learning encourage me to move forward.
