How did you apply?
I applied through my College Placement Division however the firm also accepts applications directly on their email address: info[at]aasreginalegal.com.
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
Currently, the firm works in a co-working space situated in Hauz Khas Village. On my first day, I was introduced to all the members of the firm and was briefly informed about the firm’s background and how it came to be established. I was instructed to arrive by 10 am every morning excluding the weekends, however every alternate Saturday was working.
The office environment is quite pleasant as it exists within a creative space encouraging a determined work ethic. Everyone in the team works on their own laptops and so I was also asked to bring my laptop to work daily.
The firm mainly works with companies in the startup ecosystem, specialising in private equity and venture capital. This offers interns a huge opportunity to learn about legal assistance required by young businesses at the grass-root level.
My main tasks included assisting in due diligence for companies, research work and formulating of client opinions, as well as drafting of SHAs and SSAs. At the end of my internship, I was made to do a presentation before the whole team on a relevant topic of choice.
Since the firm’s team comprises of only four members, including two associates, one company secretary and the founding partner, the workforce is rather small and provides a great opportunity for interns to take up more tasks. The team is extremely kind and patient with interns and made sure to clarify any doubts that I had regarding work I was assigned.
No bad things
The firm pays performance-based.
Accommodation, commuting to the office
I stay in Gurgaon so commuting was a bit troublesome, however easy access to the IIT and Haus Khas metro stations made my commute easier.
Anything else, what you did to chill out, lessons learned etc
Since the office is located in Hauz Khas village there are a lot of restaurants and cafes to visit nearby.
