About me

I am a common law qualified Corporate IP lawyer. I started working in the legal industry in 2015 and have worked in multiple jurisdictions, India, UAE, and the USA. My journey has taken me from an IP law firm to a PI law firm, Legal Tech to Health & fitness Startups and a Global corporate in the FMCG sector.

I help startups and small-medium business owners based out of Australia, Canada, India, UAE, UK & USA. I am the founder of the Dubai Legal Professionals, a LinkedIn group of lawyers and law students in UAE that I manage that gives me a broad networking group. I am currently working out of my home based office in the world’s most beautiful village.

The idea for Your Virtual Legal Counsel came while working remotely during 2020 as the Sole Legal Counsel for a VC backed Startup. Whilst working remotely for over a year many business owners and entrepreneurs would ask me to assist them with contracts and legal queries. This is where the idea of being a Virtual Legal Counsel came about to fill a gap of receiving legal services on a fractional basis and with the personalized touch for startups.

I work like in-house counsel would, I will bring you legal solutions that make sense for your business from a commercial aspect.
