About Us

A mission to make law accessible

iPleaders consists of a team of lawyers hell-bent on figuring out ways to make law more accessible. While the lack of access to affordable and timely legal support cuts across all sectors, classes and people in India, where it is missed most, surprisingly, are business situations. The concept of business lawyers is still nascent in this country, and while there are world class law firms catering to top-of-the-market clients like investment banks, PE or VC funds, financial powerhouses and multi-national corporations – there are very few, if at all workable, options for the common businessman, the SME manager or the startup founder. iPleaders began in 2010 to address this market with the help of technology and education.

iPleaders advocates that businessmen, including technology entrepreneurs can manage the majority of legal issues by themselves efficiently if they are equipped with basic knowledge and resources. A major focus area of iPleaders has been researching and developing resources through blogging, educational resources, workshops, and interactive software that entrepreneurs can use themselves as aid during decision making.
