Ms. Minal Madan
Achiever's Success Story
Ms. Minal Madan’s splendid entrepreneurial journey
Ms. Minal Madan, the founding and managing partner of the firm ‘Startup Lawyers & Partners’ (SLP Law Firm), at the age of 30, has been a key member in setting up a boutique law firm, acting as a one-stop destination for all legal matters for start-ups, founders, incubators, angel investors, venture capitalists and equity funds.
She has been an executor and led by example, setting up the law firm that she had envisioned, building a high-level trusted and supporting legal team. Ms. Minal grew her firm from a 2-member team to a 5-member team during the 2 years of the pandemic. With her quick understanding of the dynamics of the legal industry during these testing times, she established the law firm, managing a remote team and meeting client requirements. SLP Law Firm was recognised by Asian Legal Business in the list of Law Firms to watch out – 2022, within 2 years of its inception.
It was during this time that Ms. Minal was able to increase the location footprint for the firm and from the first location in Delhi NCR, was able to grow to a second office in Bengaluru. The firm also expanded its reach beyond India and has been regularly working with clients from the US, EU and Australia market. With the era of super-specialization and the entire world adopting to the virtual form of doing business, she was quick to understand that to work on leading matters/deal/clients and stay relevant in todays and tomorrow’s market, there was a requirement for a law firm. (a) flexible in terms of location and availability; (b) provides a faster turnaround rate of 1-2 days, which is highly appreciated by SLP’s clients in the current market; (c) quickly adapts to the client’s way of working/doing business; (d) flexible in terms of engagement for projects/retainership and its pricing model; and (e) familiar with new age, legal-tech tools.
