Felicitation from the who’s who of legal fraternity
Recently, he was profiled as one of the top Law Firm management professionals in India by Forbes India and featured in their Legal Powerlist 2021. He was felicitated by Hon’ble Mr. Justice Sanjiv Khanna, Supreme Court of India in an august gathering consisting of who’s who from the legal fraternity including Hon’ble Union Law Minister Sh. Kiren Rijiju Ji, several honourable Supreme Court and High Court Judges, General Counsels & Managing Partners of top Companies and Law Firms along with other high profile dignitaries.
For the last 15 years, he has worked with various legal practices assisting them in professionalizing their set-ups – putting processes, devising, and finalizing a strategy for branding, visibility, practice development, hiring and growth, and further working towards their successful implementation. As a pioneer in the law firm management domain, he has so far worked for more than four-hundred law firms in India. He has collaborated with NDTV, ET Now, WION (Zee) for media partnerships for law-based series with curated content and contributed to organizing some of the marquees thought leadership events in India.
Coming so far was not a cakewalk for Dr. Das as the firm’s journey began with one of the toughest phases of world history – COVID-19 pandemic. Everything had to be organized very remotely. Setting up a befitting IT Infrastructure, approaching clients and convincing them for more e-interactions were a learning experience. It surely helped them think out-of-the-box and evolve their products to suit the requirements of their clients. During the lockdowns, they were working from home, and all their work-related data had to be made accessible through secured cloud servers, and the clients’ and team interactions were held on virtual modes. The ease with which the firm adapted to the changing needs made it carve a niche for itself in the industry.
Certain successful habits or healthy habits, as Dr. Das likes to call it, have been behind the adaptation. He is a voracious reader. Also, he listens to different kinds of music for relaxation and developing concentrate. He loves travelling to newer places and interacting with all kinds of people for learning from their experiences in life and try to be wiser.
Sharing his words of wisdom, Dr. Das advises budding entrepreneurs to be sure of their decision and be prepared to invest a few years dedicatedly. Education, professional affiliations, and working relationships in the industry are key differentiators. Therefore, one needs to have a thought-through strategy as well as the investment of time before yearning to become a successful consultant. “Things may not go your way initially, given that in the consulting domain, experience, reputation, and perseverance counts a lot. Having a plan B is essential, but not giving enough time to any career option may not help either”, he concludes.
