  • Dr.Sudhir Borgonha CEO & Director TMI

    We have had the pleasure of working with Lex Valorem over the last two years. As we have grown from an early stage company into a more full fledged entity, we have sought significant counsel on a number of key issues from Lex Valorem. Corporate compliance rules in India are complex and ensuring that a fast evolving company is complying with the regulations is a challenge. We are thankful that Lex Valorem has provided us with the right guidance and ensured that as a growing company,

  • we constantly have kept abreast of the requirements and the mandates. Further, the industry we work in has little to no precedence in India. As a result, the demands that we placed on Lex Valorem on unraveling various responsibilities and actions have been complex and at each point, they have responded with the highest level of professional integrity. It has been a pleasure to work with the various individuals at Lex Valorem and I strongly recommend that their services be sought at every stage of a company’s evolution.
