In the annals of legal history, the inception of The Precept-Law Offices traces back to a serendipitous meeting between three zealous Advocates and Partners- Manish Singh, Ritesh Singh & Manish Kumar. Driven by a shared vision of delivering exceptional legal services, they commenced their journey in a small office space, armed with nothing but ambition, resilience and a profound commitment to justice. Established in 2009, The Precept has today grown into a mid-size full-service law firm with offices located in Delhi and Bengaluru. With a wide-ranging presence across India and the UAE, the firm caters to a diverse clientele, including corporates, MSMEs, startups, family business houses and high-net-worth individuals from diverse sectors.
The Inception Tale
The firm’s inception by three brilliant minds was not a tough row to hoe. In the early days, it faced several challenges and setbacks but these obstacles only fueled the trio’s determination to achieve success. As the firm continued to offer best-in-class legal services, it gradually gained recognition within legal circles.
As the legal landscape evolved, so did the firm. Embracing technological advancements and adapting to the changing needs of the clients, the trio focused on team expansion; slowly and steadily the firm got equipped with exceptional legal minds. With each new addition, the firm’s expertise expanded across various practice areas, encompassing Corporate & Commercial Law, Power, Infrastructure, Aviation, Banking, Project Financing, Civil Litigation, Corporate Tax, Cross-Border Transactions, Corporate Due Diligence, Dispute Resolution, Intellectual Property, Family Law, Land Due Diligence, Private Equity, Real Estate, White Collar Crime, Environmental Law and more.
“Our countless courtroom triumphs, alongside impactful pro bono work and dedicated community outreach initiatives, extended our influence far beyond the legal profession,” mentions Manish Singh.
“Our dedication to social justice and environmental sustainability further elevated our standing in both the legal community and society at large,” adds Ritesh.
“I firmly believe in harnessing automation and data-driven choices, all while maintaining a profound focus on the value of our human resources,” states Manish Kumar.
