Know Your Lawyer
Hello, I am Chetana (Chetana Radha Gandhi Kaasam). I have been practicing law for over 10 years the first few years of which were in India and the rest in the US. I am licensed to practice law in India (AP) and US (New York and DC). I currently live in India but practice US corporate law exclusively. I moved back to India in 2019 after having lived in the US for over 13 years. I am a strong proponent of ‘work from anywhere’ concept even before it gained popularity because of COVID-19. I believe my work speaks for itself. Most of my clients are startups in various stages who are either looking to set up their operations in the US or are looking to expand and raise funds for their startups. I believe I’m strategically placed to the clients’ advantage as I’m reachable both on IST and EST/PST and I understand where they come from and what they need and how to go about it.
I worked with one of India’s biggest law firms in their capital markets and private equity practice group at the beginning of my career. I worked on several notable IPOs, QIPs and private placements during that time. Subsequently I worked with a US law firm as their corp-lit team lead for their Virginia office and expanded my practice areas. I set up my solo law practice in August 2020 and have also been acting as an of-counsel to several other law and accounting firms.
I studied law from NALSAR University of Law (2004) and then earned a Masters in International Business laws from the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK (2005) and then another Masters in Securities and Financial Regulation from Georgetown Law, USA (2009).
I am also a full-time mom to my two children and my fur baby and a strong advocate for work-life balance.
