Legal consultant firms should embrace a forward thinking approach that goes beyond conventional legal services and adopts a comprehensive one stop shop model, catering to clients' legal, financial, and business needs. By providing integrated solutions, these firms can effectively meet the diverse requirements of their clients. This approach ensures a seamless fusion of legal expertise with financial and business insights, allowing clients to receive comprehensive guidance and streamlined solutions. Recognizing the significance of this approach, Sushila Ram Varma co-founded The Indian Lawyer & Allied Services, an all-in-one destination for exceptional legal consulting services.
With over 30 years of experience in the legal field, Sushila Ram Varma is an esteemed legal professional renowned for her expertise in handling diverse legal matters. Her vast knowledge and skills encompass advisory and transactional work, domestic and international arbitrations, as well as cross-border dispute resolutions, including litigations. Specializing in business, corporate, and commercial laws, Sushila possesses a deep understanding of the intricacies of the legal landscape.
Furthermore, in the early days of Sushila Ram Varma's entry into the legal profession, it was evident that the industry was predominantly male-dominated. Prevalent among male professionals was the notion that women in the field were merely biding their time until they got married and focused solely on their households. However, despite facing such discouraging mindsets, numerous women professionals, including Sushila Ram Varma, persevered and demonstrated their dedication to excelling in their chosen careers. One of the most gratifying aspects is that many clients find it easier to establish a connection with a female professional who possesses a multifaceted understanding of situations, often surpassing that of their male counterparts. This innate characteristic of women contributes to their appeal in various domains, ranging from the corporate world to the courtroom. Sushila Ram Varma also credits the encouragement and support received from senior lawyers and judges of her generation, who played a pivotal role in nurturing her professional growth and motivating her to strive for excellence.

Describing more about the Law Firm, the Chief Legal Consultant of The Indian Lawyer & Allied Services Sushila Ram Varma says, “We initially launched The Indian Lawyer & Allied Services as an online platform to serve as a comprehensive service provider, bridging the gap between our clients' needs and our offerings. We recognized the challenges faced by foreign businesses in establishing themselves in India and navigating the country's complex legal landscape. While significant progress has been made with a forward-thinking government, we acknowledge the need to further enhance the speed and efficiency of our laws and regulations to match those of developed nations.

As a woman, Sushila Ram Varma confidently affirms that collaborating with other women is a seamless experience due to shared understanding. She observes the eagerness of most women to learn and their strong sense of loyalty and goodwill. However, she also acknowledges a disparity in commitment levels among the new generation, possibly stemming from excessive exposure and unrealistic expectations.
Furthermore, Sushila believes that achieving success in any profession requires strong dedication and giving one's utmost effort. “I believe that women possess versatile skills and the potential to prosper in various domains. Their ability to maintain a balance between personal and professional life distinguishes them. To all women, I encourage you to envision your goals, dare to dream, and with diligent efforts, you can attain success”, concludes Sushila Ram Varma.
