Vahura was conceived with the audacious goal of professionalising the legal sector in India.
In 2011, a team of experienced lawyers and management professionals recognised the lack of meritocracy and professionalism in the sector. As a nation founded by lawyers, the limited progress in formal institutionalisation of the sector was striking.
Vahura was brought into existence with strong idealism and passion.
At Vahura, our purpose is to creatively catalyse the advancement of the legal profession.
A Change Agent for Changing Times
Over the last couple of decades, the legal sector has seen rapid growth of corporate law firms and sophistication of in-house legal teams in organisations. Vahura has played a key part in this journey and continues to innovate and lead the sector into its next phase — technology and data-led delivery of services.
A pioneer in legal recruitment, Vahura has evolved into a full-service legal, tax, governance and compliance specialist search and consulting firm — partnering with corporates, law firms, and funds for long-term strategic solutions. Along the way, we have learnt some important lessons, developed capabilities, and built an extensive network of professionals.
We boldly go today where the sector will head tomorrow.
The legal, tax, governance and compliance sector are going through exciting times. We thrive on identifying emerging challenges and transforming them into opportunities for the legal, tax, governance and compliance communities.
