Ikigai Law is a specialist law firm with a focus on technology and innovation-led businesses. The firm’s key tech-focussed practices are regulatory, public policy, general corporate, data, venture capital and IP. It prides itself for its cutting-edge work from setting up a fact-checking platform for WhatsApp, advising a satellite manufacturer on its launch on board Soyuz and SpaceX launch vehicles, to setting up India’s first cryptocurrency exchanges and representing them before the Supreme Court in a judgment reversing the Indian government’s ban on cryptocurrencies and advising on the launch of India’s first numberless payments card.
The firm was named a “pioneer” by India’s leading financial daily, The Economic Times for its contribution to India’s drones policy. Its well-regarded public policy team has been a leading voice in the policy conversations around India’s new data law.
