Law firm management and consulting company Legal League Consulting (LLC) has completed ten years of its existence this month.
Founded by Bithika Anand, LLC is India’s first management consultancy for the legal profession. It has served almost 500 clients, including domestic and international law firms and corporate legal departments.
Summing up LLC's journey thus far, Anand said,
"I sum-up LLC’s ten years journey as Transformational, Energetic and Noteworthy. It is time to build plans afresh, rework strategies and embrace necessary changes in alignment with changing technological trends. As global businesses come-up with their own contingency plans, I feel it is much more important to ensure that Indian legal profession walks shoulder to shoulder with its foreign counterparts. I’ll continue to steer LLC’s efforts in that direction.”
The initiatives undertaken by LLC in the past include creating platforms for convergence of business and law through sector-specific confluences, hybrid and bespoke equity structuring, succession planning, facilitating synergies between firms and hand-holding young and upcoming law firms to establish knowledge-driven brands.
Congratulating LLC on achieving the 10-year milestone, President of the Society of Indian Law Firms (SILF) Lalit Bhasin said,
“Lawyers also need consultation and guidance. Bithika’s Legal League Consulting has rendered distinguished service towards healthy growth of the legal profession. Along with the big ones, the young, emerging and mid-sized law firms have considerably benefitted under LLC’s guidance. Congratulations to LLC on successfully completing glorious TEN years.”
Managing Partner of Karanjawala & Co, Raian Karanjawala, said,
"In the eight years Legal League Consulting (LLC) has been associated with Karanjawala & Co., I’ve used Bithika’s services to modernise and streamline the functioning of the firm. She has brought fresh insights and valuable suggestions which have been useful and beneficial in the long term interest of the firm."
LLC has also promoted Nipun Bhatia as President – Strategic Legal Management. Nipun, a qualified Chartered Accountant and a lawyer, had joined the company in 2012 as a Senior Consultant.
