Roma and Team Burgeon are a critical part of our startup, right from company incorporation to fund raising to introducing us in the ecosystem. Deliverables from Burgeon are immaculate and done in a diligent manner keeping our interest central. Extended engagements that we have in the ecosystem, facilitated by Burgeon, has made them our End to End partner for Legal / Regulatory / Professional Services already. Glad that Roma is around. It is very reassuring for a start up that someone has our back.

Roma and the team are some of the best legal folks I have come across. “Super specialists” in the startup space, they definitely know their law, but what truly differentiates them is their empathy, a deep understanding of what a founder goes through during a startup cycle. This is seeped in their DNA, in everything they do - truly exceptional!

Priya Mohan

As a VC, our mantra is to never be the bottleneck in a transaction process and to make that happen we need partners, who help us deliver on it. Burgeon is definitely one of them! From a mid night call on terms discussion to turning around documentation in a fairly dynamic multi-investor environment, they keep pace, without compromising the rigour needed for different situations. In my view, in every transaction, all the stakeholders (VC, Founders, Legal & Fin advisors) have to understand the trade off between optimising for themselves/their clients and also the larger, consolidated interest of the deal - I think Roma has a good sense of this trade-off and she knows how no to sweat the small stuff and prioritising the relevant metrics. In all, its been a great experience working with her and Burgeon”

We have worked with Burgeon at a very crucial stage where we saw interest from two important investors, financial and strategic looking to investing in our business. Roma @ Burgeon was instrumental in closing the round with her sound knowledge and experience in working with start-ups. She is also well versed with commercial negotiations and can offer practical solutions to any issues. Burgeon team is equally strong to handle the complexity of legal matters and they burned mid night oil to close our deal in time. I have found them extremely professional.
