It was the year 2002 when we first decided to try our hands on entrepreneurship. At that time startup, legal tech and tech law business concepts were not in existence in India. But we were very clear in mind that we would establish ourselves as a a global leader in Techno Legal field. And from there the Perry4Law Law Firm was originated in August 2002. As we further progressed we realised that there are many Techno Legal issues that need a specialised and focused approach and handling. So We created Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) as the umbrella organisation that would manage all our Techno Legal projects and services. Also Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB) was established so that Techno Legal Projects can be dedicatedly managed by it.
It took us 17 years to reach at the stage where we are today. In the year 2019 we created PTLB Projects LLP and TeleLaw Private Limited (TPL) and both were recognised as a Legal Tech and Tech Law Startups by Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) and MeitY Startup Hub. This is the penultimate stage and after this stage we would be working hard to make India a global leader in Techno Legal fields.
The launch of website of TeleLaw Project is and indication that we are very serious in our endeavour to make India a global hub for Techno Legal services. As can be seen from the numerous Techno Legal services that TeleLaw Project is catering to, our aim is to bridge the gap between technology and law. No matter whatever automation and technologies we use, the gap created by lack of skilled lawyers is significant. Automation cannot help unless we have skilled workforce and cyber security lawyers across the world. PTLB is providing online Techno Legal skills development and training for legal and non legal professionals world wide. We intend to expand this project further at the end of this year.
Law firms and lawyers are not very comfortable with use of technology or dealing in technology related issues. Various survey and reports have also confirmed this fact. We at Perry4Law are already dealing in fields like Cyber Law, Cyber Security, Cyber Forensics, E-Discovery, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, etc for long. So managing legal issues of cyber security was no problem for us. But our reach was somewhat limited to Asian region and we felt a need to make it global. That is why our TeleLaw Project is covering the entire globe and any person residing in any part of the world can seek our Techno Legal services.
It is one thing to manage local or national legal issues and it is altogether a different game to manage global cyber security issues. We were aware that Conflict of Laws would create serious challenges before lawyers and law firms. That is why we have been doing research and analysis of laws of foreign countries like US, UK, Europe, Asia, etc in this regard for more than a decade. In fact, we have launched dedicated portal titled “Conflict Of Laws In Cyberspace, Internet And Computer Era” to make national and international stakeholders aware of international cyber security issues. Another dedicated portal titled “International Legal Issues Of Cyber Attacks, Cyber Terrorism, Cyber Espionage, Cyber Warfare And Cyber Crimes” has been launched by P4LO to make our cyber security related efforts more comprehensive and effective.
In the year 2016, P4LO ad PTLB launched the exclusive Techno Legal Centre Of Excellence For International Cyber Security Law Of India (CEICSLI). It aims to be a single place resource for international cyber security law and international cyber security treaties. Besides Cyber Security, the CEICSLI is also working in the fields like Cyber Law, Cyber Forensics, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, etc that have international and trans border implications.
We kept on improving our projects and services and we realised that there must be a single place where all Techno Legal issues of national and international importance can be managed. After much deliberation, our team decided to launch the website of TeleLaw Project so that international cyber law and cyber security issues can be handled by us from a single place. We are also aware of the significance of international cooperation and collaboration in the cyber security and cyber law fields and that is why national and international organisations, governments, etc can make a reference for our services. We would give due consideration to such references and even if any person or organisation fails to get such reference, P4LO, PTLB, TeleLaw, etc can give that reference.
So we have put our 17 years of Techno Legal Expertise and Projects behind TeleLaw Project with multiple purposes. We wish to bridge the gap between technology and law/lawyers, we wish to ensure Access to Justice (A2J) and Justice for All, we wish to help in harmonisation of international laws on cyber law, cyber security, etc, we wish to make India a global hub for Techno Legal Services, etc. The potential of TeleLaw Project is tremendous and with appropriate funding and right team, we can do wonders.
