Success Stories

Imagine how it would be if you could navigate the usual legal and regulatory mess with ease, and make better decisions as you scale your business or career growth. Regulatory and legal difficulties is a huge hurdle to doing business in India, and very few people have mastery over it. We are inviting you to find out more about how we can add a touch of magic to your growth. Here are some amazing success stories of our students who have taken up our courses.

My purpose of joining the course is certainly fulfilled; it has given me the much needed practical knowledge of law. All modules in the course are designed with emphases on practical knowledge. The concepts are not explained theoretically but in a practical manner. I personally found the module on business structuring, institutional finance, and raising investment to be most beneficial for me. I am able to utilize this knowledge in my current job also.

Shivam Dubey

Associate, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas

All that I learned from the course is very relevant to me and helps me every single day. I still refer the course notes. Once, we were working on a transaction which involved export-import compliance. It was something I had never done before and none of my team members had an experience with it. I had only the basic idea about it and that is when I realized that I have studied it in my diploma course. I referred the course material and handled the transaction totally based on the knowledge gained through the diploma course, it gave me the basic idea of what to check and how to check.

Ananya Banerjee

Managing Partner, Unico Legale

I can definitely say that this course has added value to my profile and facilitated my growth. The knowledge gained through this course has boosted my confidence and helped me get through many interviews. I found the modules on Arbitration, FDI, and Corporate Governance to be extremely informative. The module on drafting provided various templates that gave you a framework to build on. The webinars by various industry experts was an added advantage of this course. These were exceptionally outstanding, interactive and provided the much needed insights from a commercial point of view.

Mehak Gupta

Associate, Economic Laws Practice

I am a computer science engineer by education, but an entrepreneur by profession. Having had no formal education in running a business I was always led to a lot of "learning the hard way". When iPleaders launched the course for Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws, in an e-learning mode I took up the course with the objective to understand all legal nuances related to running a business. The course covered things like; understanding of ESOP, Sweat Equity, Company Policy, License agreements, IP related law, EULA and lots of other content which made sense for our business.

Atul Gupta

Managing Director of InSync Tech-Fin Solutions Ltd

I am a practicing Cyber lawyer in Mumbai for the past 3 years and have founded Cyberjure Legal Consulting. The course was a very good learning experience, and I am glad I did it. It helped me understand the nuances of many laws which we studied in college, but never went into practical applicability of the same. The stuff I learnt in the course helped me in my matters too, and in structuring e-commerce start-ups.
