  • I'm so excited to be launching something amazing today!

    Today is yet another TDL x ILA episode and I am so honoured and grateful that I have an opportunity today, to introduce an absolutely fantastic initiative, powered by ILA, called Manage My Crisis.

    Manage my Crisis is pioneered by four incredible people, who are all on today’s episode with me and will be speaking more about the initiative, how & why they got here.

    Crisis. That’s a word that hits our lives every now and then. Some we can manage to handle on our own. But more often than not, there are more that we just don’t know what to do about. Nor do know whom to turn to for help and advice. That’s when we start to panic and we take the wrong decisions which further cause more stress and anxiety.

    And it’s exactly to help us navigate such a situation, we have with us today probably India’s first organisation that is focussing on professionally managing your crisis.

    Please welcome on the show today the amazing team of ManageMyCrisis.

    We have with us:

    Jamshed Mistry, advocate at the Supreme Court and Bombay High Court.

    Unnati Jhaveri, a therapeutic counsellor and life coach with international experience.

    Tapan Parekh, an Internet solutions expert and founder of Dot Solutions.

    Tejas Mehta, a communications specialist, journalist and content creator.

  • While all of us 'want' plenty from our business, I encourage you to stop & think of your absolute 'no-no's when it comes to your business/ What would you absolutely not tolerate from your business?

    Is it a loss of control? Losing your work-life balance? No cutting corners/ having anti-bribery initiatives? Having your legalities in place? Paying your dues - taxes, salaries, expenses, vendor payments - on time? Building an inclusive work culture? Encouraging pro bono work? Making your organization family first? Having open-door policies? Taking mental health seriously? A strict adherence to quality over everything else?

    Whatever it is, having your non-negotiables in place is the FIRST step to set up any business.

    Your non-negotiables will dictate -

    - What kind of corporate structure you can go for

    - What kind of policies you should have/ get drafted in your business

    - What questions you should be asking, and seeking clarity on

    - What kind of professionals would you need to help you through the business set up/ running of

    - How and when you should hire/ fire - and how to provide for those in your employment contracts

    - What you should provide for in your third-party contracts

    In short, your non-negotiables create a boundary within which your creativity and your business can flourish, be nourished and protected. In business, the pressures, opinions and opportunities can be distracting, but these non-negotiables would help keep you focussed on your mission; help you make decisions that would be optimal for you, and help you provide clear and unambiguous instructions to your partners/vendors/other professionals whom you'd engage within the course of your journey;

  • Today is yet another episode in our ILA dialogues series. As the Daily Lawyer is part of the amazing International Legal Alliance (ILA) network, I am happy to take this opportunity to feature one ILA member, every month, under the ‘ILA Dialogues series”.

    Our guest today is Ms. Rashna Jehani, a corporate lawyer and Associate Partner at ZMC Law - a full service law firm in Mumbai.

    Along with getting her basic law degree (BLS LLB) from GLC Mumbai, she earned an LLM degree from Columbia Law School, New York City, in 2017. Rashna honed her expertise across various corporate law fields from banking and property documentation to private equity and debt transactions, through her stints at various large law firms.

    What I love about her story is that after spending a significant time honing her practical legal experience, Rashna realised that an MBA degree would better help her understand the position of her clients and she then set out to pursue a global MBA program from the S P Jain Institute of Management, in 2020.

    Rashna advises companies of all sizes, from start-ups to large conglomerates, on structuring, investments, private equity and various other documentation that ensure protection of their rights and interests. She also regularly posts regulatory and legislative updates on the ZMC law page on LinkedIn, to inform the general public about the changes in the law and what it would mean for businesses.

    Rashna, through the firm, ZMC Law, is a member of the International Legal Alliance.

  • We’re kicking off a new series on the The Daily Lawyer Podcast - #thedailystories

    I started the Daily Lawyer podcast to make the law more relatable, and give a realistic understanding of both the profession and the professionals. Towards this end, and to give a more holistic understanding of the practical applications of law or, the pitfalls of not having your risk assessed by professionals, I started the #thedailystories series - where I invite business owners, across industries, to speak about how focussing on documentation/seeking legal advice helped them make better and safer business decisions - which directly spoke to their business bottom lines.

    Kicking off this series is Mr. Aditya Iyer, co-founder of NeoTrader, a pioneering software that offers ready-made trades with multiple exit points, enabling anyone to comfortably trade in the (Indian) stock markets. Aditya, an MBA and a CMT, was into equity research with a large financial services company, before he made the switch to entrepreneurship, and co-founded NeoTrader, along with his amazing co-founder, Mr. Raja Venkatraman, under the aegis of the ‘Father of technical analysis in India’ - Dr. C. K Narayan.

    In this episode, Aditya speaks about the challenges he faced while running and growing an organization through Covid, the steps he took to protect his risk and why he believes that seeking professional help from lawyers is imperative at every stage of the business.

  • Today, we’re starting a new series on the podcast - #TDLxILADialogues

    This series is in collaboration with the International Legal Alliance (ILA) - a network of independent legal practitioners, across more than 150 countries, working together on a best friend basis to provide effective solutions to clients and advocate on important issues with the judiciary.

    I am so proud to announce that The Daily Lawyer is now part of the ILA Network :)

    In this series, we will be having conversations on various aspects of the law, from law professionals within the ILA who practice in those areas. It was only right that we started this series with Mr, Jamshed Mistry, the founder of ILA and a counsel at the Bombay High Court. Most of you by now may have heard that the Supreme Court of India, is allowing live streaming of constitutional law cases. This is a big win and a positive step forward for the future. Jamshed along with Senior Advocate Indira Jaising ably argued this matter, and I was thrilled when he agreed to come on the podcast to share how this journey started, and what the implications of this would be.

    Tune in to listen to this mini-episode and do tell us what you think.

  • Today’s #careersinlaw series podcast is our longest podcast ever. I debated between releasing it in two parts, but after I heard the podcast again (And again!) I decided that I'm going to stick with its full length - there is so much great information in there, that it will benefit anyone who listens to it patiently.

    Trust me, once you start listening, you won’t stop, because the content is that interesting and that different!

    I present Mr. Prashant Ajmera, immigration lawyer, speaker, advisor, author and so much more -

    Mr Prashant Ajmera, is an Indian immigration lawyer, NRI, and Canadian citizen with more than twenty–five years of experience in the field of corporate and migration law and international trade. He assists HNIs and UHNIs in making investments outside of India in real estate stock markets, businesses, and a second passport.

He is also an author of two books respectively on business immigration by investing in residency and higher education of a child abroad.

  • There are people who leave you in awe with just how MUCH they have accomplish, and continue to accomplish, in one lifetime. Kabir is one such person for me.

    The first time I met Kabir, was when I was a student at the investment arbitration class at Columbia Law School and Kabir was assisting my then professor, and he rattled off, without looking at any reference material statistics of ANY investment arbitration case that had ever been decided. My 'awe' began there, and hasn't stopped yet. Through this conversation, you'd probably see why.

    Kabir has not one, but four international law degrees, he has walked the halls of some of the greatest law schools in the world, he is associated in an academic capacity with some of the greatest law schools in America, he is an Attorney with the large, full-service law firm, and amid all this, he finds the time to dedicate himself to campaigning for and making an impact in bringing in greater diversity in the international arbitration space... AND... doing yoga!! Phew! I'm exhausted just writing his bio!

    Listen to this brilliant conversation, make notes and take away something meaningful from this.

  • I run a #AskJenna question box periodically up on the Daily Lawyer Instagram (@thedailylawyerig), and this time, I was asked to speak about 'wills'.

    I have a lot to say about wills and since #lawsimplified is a bite-sized legal information segment, I decided to break this up into sections. So this is the first episode in that mini-series.

    In this episode, I speak about What are wills and Why one must make a will.

    If you enjoyed this episode, it would mean the world to me if you could take some time off and write a review for the podcast up on Apple reviews (https://podcasts.apple.com/in/podcast/the-daily-lawyer-podcast/id1621919832)

  • In today’s #careersinlaw episode, we have Adv. Siddharth Ranka, a dual-qualified lawyer (qualified both in India and England), currently working in Dubai (!), to speak about maritime or shipping law.

    Siddharth has a wonderfully focussed and rounded experience within the maritime law space - not just in India but also other major shipping hubs like Singapore and Dubai. He has worked both in a law firm set up and as an in-house counsel, thereby seeing both sides of the proverbial coin, when it comes to general legal practice.

    Siddharth also speaks about getting qualified as a Solicitor (England& Wales), the process to do so and the utility of this degree. This completely honest conversation is packed with useful tips and tricks and I cannot be more thankful to Siddharth for being so generous with his time and sharing his learnings so selflessly on this platform.

  • In this age of everyday unicorns and occasional decacorns, being an entrepreneur is becoming an attractive dream. And I am all for this burgeoning trend.

    We see a lot of literature on the latest business trends or start-up innovations, but we rarely see or hear practical tips that are needed in order to start your business.

    I've put together 5 points that I think a potential entrepreneur needs to think about BEFORE he starts a business. I believe going through each of these points and having a clear understanding of where you stand relative to each, will be hugely beneficial in giving you a clear direction of the next steps you need to take in the business

    I hope you enjoy this episode. IF you did, please share and subscribe to the podcast. It would mean a lot to me if you could leave me a review. Or leave a comment on our social media handles -
