The Vakilsearch Story
Vakilsearch is an online provider of legal and professional services, both for individuals and businesses. It helps people prepare basic legal documents, fix appointments with lawyers and get reliable guidance on taxation, property/real estate, company law, intellectual property law, etc. The idea for Vakilsearch was born when founder Hrishikesh Datar was presenting an idea for LawWeb, a portal to provide quality content to lawyers, and someone in the audience at IIM Bangalore asked: “Why not help people find lawyers online, instead?”

Recipe for success
It would be a frame of mind where no work is too big or too small, where you take the ups with the downs but never lose hope, where you think exponential, not incremental, and where you make each person feel like the master of his/her destiny.
Your unique idea
We make it easy to find professional services online. What used to be painful, difficult, time-consuming and expensive is being made progressively easier. That is our secret sauce.
Partnership with Kalaari
The journey so far has been great. Sumit and Kumar have always been of help and are always ready to pitch in, no matter how pressing their schedule.
Your first meeting
Sumit and Kumar dropped in at our office. After that, I was invited to pitch to the entire Kalaari team. While it wasn’t a walk in the park, I had a great time and felt completely at ease. My advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is to be brutally honest about your business because nothing remains hidden in due diligence, and keeping trust intact is crucial in a long-term relationship.
