30th, May 2017 - HR Tech
Lawyered.in platform has over 70+ business lawyers, which include premium lawyer who have worked at top law firms like Luthra & Luthra, AZB, Amarchand Mangaldas, Khaitan & co and well-known companies & startups such as Tata, Google, Zoomcar, Redbus, Swiggy, FashionTV, Pepperfry, bank4u, Cardekho, Tripoto, Edukart, to name a few.
Currently operational in Delhi NCR, Mumbai & Bengaluru, the platform has resolved over 1000+ queries and helped more than 300+ businesses find their lawyer. After successfully helping start-ups across these major hubs, lawyered is now expanding its target to SME’s and industry specific businesses. For the same reason, a new feature of on-call legal advice has been introduced through which businesses can now take help of an industry expert lawyer at a flat fee of Rs.1500/- for 30 minutes. The new feature is expected to come very handy for HR, CIO, CXO, and decision makers working with young startups & early stage venture which cannot afford an in-house lawyer.
Like education, medical services, police enforcement, legal is a building block of the society and it is surprising to see that till date, legal remains an expensive and inaccessible service.
Lawyered.in is a platform where people can find lawyers based on their requirements and budget constraints. We are on a mission to help people feel legally empowered. With Lawyered, you can ask free legal questions, consult lawyers on call and book appointments with your preferred lawyer.

Unlike our competitor like lawrato & VakilSearch, lawyered.in is solving the niche problem faced by start-ups & SME’s. Moreover, the criteria for lawyers to be on the network have made sure that the platform is highly curated as per the needs of their target segment. To be on the lawyered network, a lawyer must hold an active bar license, minimum 3 years of practice experience, and a deep understanding of corporate/business law. The major revenue for the platform is the lawyer subscription that comes in a quarterly, half yearly and yearly plan.
Challenges and makeovers:
Entrepreneurship comes with a lot challenges. But these challenges are rewarding in nature. right from trying to establish a brand, looking for a product market fit and making people believe in your product. To top all these, there is a risk involved when you don’t know the future, and there is always something or somebody who holds you back. The only way to overcome this is persistence and perseverance. It is definitely not easy, but it is definitely worth all the effort.
Future plans and vision:
The legal sector in India is roughly estimated to be 10 billion dollars’ industry. According to a recent survey by Bar council of India, there are over 2 million lawyers in India, out of which more than 60% are self-employed.
By the end of 2017, we expect to on board 1000 lawyers and expand our reach to 20 major cities. Moving forward we want to add more automation for lawyer discovery and build tech-enabled solutions for lawyers to practice smart.
