I work with a diverse client base providing pragmatic yet insightful commercial and strategic guidance that provides a tangible competitive advantage; with a particular passion for working with talented entrepreneurs and start-ups on a variety of legal and compliance business needs. With extensive experience working in-house as legal counsel for major FSTE 100 companies, I have practical legal and commercial knowledge that influences business decision making to manage risk and drive growth.

As a business leader and former majority shareholder of a leading branding agency, I have worked with numerous entrepreneurs whom have built highly successful businesses, this experience is invaluable in understanding the challenges faced by start-ups and the needs of a business from a client perspective. Crucially, I believe that my role as a legal adviser is to assess client risk and opportunities to find solutions to mitigate the business impact associated with legal risks.

“Rekha has worked with Gift Creation Limited as a commercial legal advisor on numerous occasions; helping to negotiate retail contracts with a focus on strategy. Rekha takes a highly pragmatic approach with a focus on the end results the business requires. Moreover, her analysis in identifying risk and her due diligence has ensured that the company has every confidence in her professional legal guidance. Rekha has the patience and ability to simplify complex issues and is extremely personable. I highly recommend her.”

“At a time of need and at the early start up stages of the business, we turned to Rekha who applied her commercial legal expertise to ensure that our business was compliant. She has been professional and concise in her approach and left no stone unturned. We are an on-line business and Rekha quickly got to grips with understanding the business and pre-empting the requirements of the business in the future. She drafted contractual documentation, provided guidance on policy, assisted with IP issues and her support at management level was invaluable. Without her input, we’d have faced numerous challenges. I have no hesitation in recommending her.”
