Inventus Law: The Global Technology Law Firm Supporting Emerging Startups

During the launch of his book “I do what I do” in September 2017, Raghuram Rajan, the former RBI governor, said, “The Indian economy has tremendous potential, and there is no reason why it shouldn’t be growing at 9 to 10 percent.” Owing to the rapid proliferation of the Indian economy in the last decade, India’s tier II and III cities have become hubs for startups lately. Albeit the Indian government has been encouraging these emerging startups to build and develop innovative solutions, the savvy personnel and entrepreneurs in this part of the world often face several market and regulatory hurdles when they wish to diversify their presence in the Silicon Valley or any other territory. Anil Advani, the Managing Partner of Inventus Law, whose customers include many leading technology companies in Silicon Valley and India, points out to the different working environments in the U.S. and India; startups frequently have to go through the regulatory challenges of RBI, SEBI, and FEMA to start and fund their businesses in the U.S.

Inventus Law has played a quintessential helping hand for 100’s of companies coming from India to grow their business in the U.S.

The Palo Alto-based firm advises founders of, and investors in, high-growth technology startup companies in seed financings, venture financings, mergers and acquisitions and commercial and intellectual property arrangements. The firm has a growing practice representing startup ventures in raising money through innovative sources like crowdfunding and Initial Coin Offerings.

Over the years, the firm has played a quintessential helping hand for 100’s of such technology startup companies coming from India to develop and grow their business in the U.S.

He mentions, “As the head of the firm, I maintain healthy relationships with all of my clients and advise them in building investment strategies and how to thrive continuously in the U.S. market that is subjected to constant change.”

Going further, the firm intends to diversify its network with new office locations in Dallas and Los Angeles.
