MEET THE TEAM

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

We have worked with Agama Law for over 18 months now, and received a very high quality of legal support from Archana and her excellent team. Their quality of drafting and speed of response is uniformly very good, but the two things that I believe set them apart from other law firms of their size are 1) the ability to quickly get to the practical heart of an issue while cutting out legal "noise" and hence being a true business partner, and 2) always being available to opine quickly on a diverse range of ad-hoc legal matters faced by small and fast-growing companies such as ours. I would highly recommend Agama Law to any company seeking practical yet thorough legal advice.

CFO – Rewards Program Management Company

It's always a pleasure to work with Nitin and the Agama Law team! As always, they are just a call away and ready to support in all kinds of legal issues. Among other things, I appreciate: timely response/ updates from the team on the assignments, and your unbiased listening for others' views. It is important in any profession to consider the viewpoints of others with due respect and take them into account while making the decisions and you very well exhibit this quality. During the Covid lockdown, Agama’s regular updates on legal matters, have been worthy and useful.

Partner, A Company Secretaries Firm

Firstly I would like to thank Agama Law firm and its staff for guiding us at each and every stage when we require legal guidance. Its Partners and staffs are very polite, knowledgeable, experienced, professional and always responsive to all our questions and concerns. At all times they strive to provide the services at their best and at no times deny their help even for small legal query. They give right advice on time and are very quick in closing the matter.

Pharmaceutical Company

Nitin Jain and the entire team of Agama are a “Delight” to be associated with! While the above statement pretty much sums up the great work that they do, it is pertinent to share a few key points on why they make a very formidable team. Extremely professional in their outlook and approach. The Team is backed by individual professionals who have the desired requisite qualification in their own streams and years of experience combined with it. Their advice is sound and thoroughly researched. Always available and a very structured approach of working.

National Manager – Human Resources, Leading Australian Logistics Company

I would like to convey on behalf of the Company that, we as a Company are very much satisfied with your services. We really appreciate your prompt responses for our queries. Your legal resolution and suggestions to any situations really proves to be helpful to us. We do appreciate for recommending us the strategies and resolving any critical legal affairs. Also, we as a Company greatly rely on your opinions, which are to the point and clear. No suggestions on improvement as you and your team are always up to the mark!! Nitin and I, individually have a very good rapport with each other and I look forward for strengthening the same. Further, we sincerely thank you for your services and we wish that, our association with you becomes more longer and stronger.

Company Secretary & Manager - Accounts, Legal, Leading Australian Logistics Company

Over the past few years, Agama Law Associates has provided us excellent counsel on an ongoing basis. They have assisted us in closing several real estate transactions including drafting/ reviewing transactional documents and conducting risk assessment on properties. Agama has always been able to provide quality work product while respecting short timelines. We find their approach to be detail-oriented, while being pragmatic and in tune with commercial reality.

Assistant Manager–Legal - International Apparels Company

Agama Law Associated has been a valued and a trusted partner for us. Having been associated with us since the initial stage of our company formation, Archana and her team were very proactive and co-operative in supporting us to close numerous vendor relationships within a reasonable time. The team is well equipped to engage on various legal matters, have offered sound and effective legal advice and guidance and have ably assisted us to resolve contractual issues with vendors without compromising our interest Their level of engagement and commitment reflects their intent of building a “long term“ relationship with clients which we have appreciated and reciprocated.

CEO - Logistics and Supply Chain Company

It has truly been a pleasure working with Archana, you and the team at Agama. In my experience of working with Agama over the last year, it is commendable to note that while Archana, of course, has in-depth knowledge of her area of expertise i.e. corporate commercial transactions, amongst others, the team working under her guidance is equally equipped to ably deal with a transaction at hand.

A quality that sets Agama apart from other law firms is the adherence to time commitments - I have never had to send reminders for a deadline. Most matters were delivered on schedule and if an extension was needed due to the complexity of a matter, it was sought well in advance and not last minute. Further, Archana making herself available for client calls at short notices and also keeping the clients informed in advance of her travel schedule/ days off (if any), reflected, at all times, the professionalism with which Agama is run.

Founder – Sports Law and Management Firm

Having worked with legal counsels in Billion Dollar Conglomerates and now with Agama, we found the same level of competence. Team Agama has also been very agile and quick to respond to our needs. We hope they strive and excel further in their endeavours.

 

Director, Exclusive representative of a Poland company engaged in the advanced medical equipment and technology industry

Agama Law has been our legal partner now for than 3 years now. Archana & her team have always been a call away for all our legal drafts, agreements and legal issues that have come our way. It is commendable on how the team works on every assignment with precision and delivers the best. They cover most of our legal concerns and come up with points that we ignore while doing commercial negotiations. This makes our paper-work strong and covers us for all future contingencies. We can always focus on our business and commercials while we have a partner who takes care of all our legal hassles. Archana has always answered our questions, no matter how trivial. She and the team have also worked for us during her medical emergency and have taken our calls in wee hours for an opinion. I always remember telling Archana that I need this reverted in a day and use words like ASAP every-time. She has always accommodated my super urgent requests and have completed all our assignments within our expected TAT. I can easily say-working with Agama has been one of my best experience.

Founder and CEO - Logistics Company

We found Agama Law Associates and right from the beginning, Agama exceeded all our expectations. First, we wanted a legal firm that understands the business end of the practice of law. Second, we wanted an innovative, can - do, dynamic legal advisor in our business endeavours. Agama has consistently blown us away with their ideas and the implementation of those ideas with a fantastic turn-around time. Third, we wanted responsive, professional service-minded people to work with. Agama certainly is all of this. Besides experience, Agama Law Associates brings a reputation for unparalleled commitment and integrity. To us, that reputation is priceless. Often times, we pick up the phone and can immediately reach Archana, the Partner of Agama, to kick around some ideas and ask for advice. We whole-heartedly recommend Agama. This Firm is constantly aware of what a client needs. Their response is instantaneous.

Sr. Manager-Legal - Financial Service Providers

In all my interactions with the ALA team, I have found them to be well-informed and attentive to the needs of my organization. They are very thorough in their research and often come back and present insightful suggestions to approach the issue at hand. I have come to rely on them as our trusted advisor.

 

HR Head - Leading Diagnostic Centre

I had the opportunity to work with Agama Law headed by Ms. Archana Balasubramanian when their services were engaged for an International transaction by us. We place on record our appreciation for the assistance rendered by the Agama team led by Ms. Archana. The professionalism, attention to detail and responsiveness in being available any time be it through skype or phone call was commendable. We always had the comfort that of being in safe hands thanks to her proactive and cooperative approach in supporting us through her deft handling of negotiations, leading to speedy resolution of intricate legal as well as commercial issues.

Chief Financial Officer – International Entity providing EPC solutions and services

We were searching for a Legal Consultant for our firm, we stumbled upon Agama in some of our research. After our first meet with Archana at their office, we were pretty sure they were going to be our legal consultants. Extremely professional, detail-oriented and to the point advise on each and every aspect. They also provide with alternate solution if some things are not working out. Their response time is fantastic. Their approach towards each new requisite and the existing process is systematic, making sure the client doesn’t miss any of the points. Would definitely recommend to my colleagues.
