Please share with us the inception and basic motive behind establishing Juris Prime Law Services.
During 2005 (re-launched in 2015), there were not much law firms in Hyderabad to cater the Banking, real estate and Corporate needs of local clients. So I felt it was a good time to establish a law firm which would provide best legal solutions with a practical approach to cater the needs of the clients in and around Hyderabad.
What challenges did you face in the initial days of establishment and how did you overcome that?
Main challenge that we faced during the initial years was getting right kind of clients and recruiting right kind of human resources. In fact, these are the challenges which are faced by all the companies at all time.
I sort of tried a trial method and recruited fresher’s and trained them so that they can provide legal services according to the standard and quality promised by our firm to our clients.
What are the services provided by the firm and how it caters the need of clients in Hyderabad and elsewhere?
Juris Prime Law Services is a full service law firm. We provide legal services in following fields:
- Arbitration & Dispute Resolution
- Banking & Finance
- Company Incorporation
- Corporate & Commercial Law
- Employment & Labour Law
- Foreign Investment
- Intellectual Property Rights
- Mergers & Acquisition
- Private Equity & Venture Capital
- Project & Corporate Finance
- Real Estate
- Technology, Media & Telecom
Being a full service law firm, we are capable of providing solution to all kinds of legal complexities faced by the clients under one umbrella. We structurize client’s transaction and provide practical solutions in a legal way.
Please share with us the uniqueness of services provided by your law firm.
We give problem oriented solutions. We believe in specialized rather than generalized solution which makes us different from our competitors.
What milestones have you achieved till now?
Our growth rate has been good and satisfactory. Since our inceptions there is no time for looking back as day by day we are progressing. Over the years we have been associated and empanelled with lot of Banks and large Corporates.
Where do you see the firm in the long run?
There is no road map as such because I believe in working hard which is a key to success. In coming 2 years we are hoping to see our revenue increasing by manifolds with a significant increase in no. of client and we from a firm of 11 headcount hope to become a team of 20 by March 2017.
