Analysts say free-counsel firms are growing in number and are seeing a shift in clientele.
A number of the firms are starting to cater to larger, larger clients, which they say helps with revenue.
The firms say they’re offering a free consultation to clients who have a problem with a lawyer, as well as to customers who are looking for a quick resolution.
The firm’s goal is to offer the best advice and provide them with the best possible resolution, said Sridhar Sreenivasan, chief executive of the India Free Counsel Association.
While the free-legal counsel industry has grown, analysts say there are still plenty of small and medium-sized firms out there who offer their services.
The Indian Supreme Court has made it clear that a lawyer who has been convicted of a crime can not be free of the obligation to represent clients in legal proceedings.
It has also set up a special committee to study the issue and report to the government.
The Free Counsel Advocacy Network says there are more than 5,000 such free-law firms in the country.
While there is no official tally of how many such firms exist, there are a number of analysts who have estimated that as many as 40 to 60 of them exist in the private sector.
They say this is because they offer a free service, and not because they are legal.
For some, a free lawyer is not necessarily a bad thing.
They see it as a good investment in their future.
For others, however, the practice of providing free legal counsel is becoming increasingly popular.
The practice has been around for years, but it’s now gaining popularity.
Experts say that it’s the practice that allows a lawyer to make a good profit, as the firm’s clients are less likely to turn to legal services in the future.
The number of free legal counselors is growing.
The industry has expanded rapidly in the last few years, said M. Venkatesh Kulkarni, a partner at the law firm Bisht.
“There are more people now seeking free legal representation and it’s becoming popular, especially among lawyers.”
In the meantime, many people are turning to legal firms, hoping that they will offer a quick and easy solution to a problem.
