Childhood / Young Days:
I was born in Dombivli, Maharashtra (at heart, still a proud Dombivlikar). I studied in Marathi medium schools from Dombivli and graduated with B.Com from the University of Mumbai. Coming from a family of lawyers (with my father, brother, and sister-in law being Company Secretaries and Lawyers), I also followed in their footsteps and completed my professional degrees of Company Secretary and LL.B. After passing the Bar Exam, I worked as a M&A Lawyer with one of the top corporate law firms of India.
Simultaneously while pursuing my legal career, I was also an active member/volunteer of “Chaturang Pratishthan”, an organization working in social, cultural and educational field in Maharashtra. I have compeered many events for Chaturang and few other cultural organizations.
Beginning of Career:
After marriage, I moved to the US, in 2016, along with my husband, Dr. Mahesh Vishe (who is a Ph.D in Organic Chemistry and currently, pursuing post doctoral research at Harvard University).
In US, I had to start my legal career from scratch and hence, decided to pursue a US law degree. In 2017, I graduated from Vanderbilt Law School with ‘Master of Laws (LL.M.)’ and ‘Law & Business Certificate’. I am now a New York licensed Attorney.
Family: It goes without saying that I would not have been able to make it this far without the continued support of my loving family.
I would be happy to talk to anyone desiring to pursue a corporate legal career.
