This leading online platform offers comprehensive professional services to startups, corporates, and professionals. He is committed to bridging the gap between legal services and businesses, striving to make legal, tax and compliance processes more accessible and efficient for entrepreneurs & all types of businesses.

Hrishikesh’s journey began with a solid legal foundation as an alumnus of the prestigious National Law School, Bangalore. This education laid the groundwork for his future endeavours in the legal sector. Subsequently, he served as an apprentice in the chambers of Mr. Arun Jaitley, the former Law Minister of India, giving him valuable real-life insights and practical knowledge in the legal field. Early in his career, he understood the challenges businesses face in India.

The platform aimed to streamline legal processes and make services more accessible to startups and small businesses.

“My inspiration to venture into the service sector came from witnessing the challenges startups and businesses face in obtaining reliable legal support. Recognizing the need to bridge the gap between legal services and companies, I saw an opportunity to introduce technology to streamline legal processes and make them accessible at an affordable cost. In a survey carried out in March 2020, 84 percent of law firm practitioners said that the use of legal technology had increased efficiency in their organization, whilst 77 percent claimed that legal tech was in the process of being increased at the company. With a mission to support businesses in their growth journey, I founded Vakilsearch.”
