How did you get the idea to start this?
After graduating as a computer engineer in 2012, Amandeep Kakkar started pursuing L.L.B from Panjab University. During his internship in 2013 at High court, Chandigarh the engineer within couldn’t ignore the roof-touching piles of paperwork. In the coming days he realized that the only medium the client had to reach the lawyer was through references viz., lawyers, friends or relatives in court. A vital need of a digital platform to make the lawyer directly accessible to the client was felt .There had to be an ecosystem where hassle- free legal solutions could be accessed.
The internship was over but the idea stuck. He discussed this thought with, Paras Vij, a full time techie, during a weekend visit to Chandigarh. Initial brainstorming sessions led to the completion of the founding team. Abhay Panwar, who is a techie and an old pal from engineering college, was roped into the team. Further discussions led to the refinement of the platform which widened the scope of idea.
Let us know about the people who are behind this venture?
Our team comprises of two techies and an advocate. We have great interest in solving the problems that need attention. We have mixed our legal expertise and technical brilliance to create Lawsolva.
Have you got any kind of funding, if not do you have any such plans?
Currently we are bootstrapping, we would be looking to raise funds in the coming months.
How big is your team size and from which location do you operate?
We are team of three people and are dedicated towards the development of the legal -tech ecosystem. We operate from Chandigarh and Mohali.
What are your future plans?
Our mission is that nobody suffers a bad litigation ever again. We plan to bring over 3000 verified expert lawyers on our platform by the end of financial year 2016-17. We aim to provide users with hassle-free legal guidance, support and solutions.
We are coming up with app soon. So your lawyer is going to be right in your pocket.
Which is one thing which motivates you to be in this field?
I love the quote “The best way to predict the future is to make it”.
I think the biggest motivation is to be able to reach out to people and fulfill their requirements through use of technology. Gradually every service is going online. To make that transition and to be able to set new conventions in the legal domain is a great kick in itself.
