Joining us today is Nalini Mahadevan, Founder of MLO Law, LLC. As a distinguished attorney, Nalini is helping St. Louis Corporations attract and retain top international talent for the region’s growing industries.
In this episode:
Nalini starts the conversation by explaining that she grew up on three different continents – born in England, grew up in India, and came to the United States, specifically St.Louis, to attend Washington University. Nalini says that entrepreneurial thinking, to her means figuring things out and offering solutions not only for yourself but for the people you serve.
Nalini explains how she sowed the seeds to birthing her very own law firm, MLO Law. From starting her business out of her home to a much larger location in Clayton, Nalini says she worked hard to service the clients that walked through the door. Starting with Estate Planning Law, Nalini explains that she quickly found her calling in Immigration Law.
Nalini talks about how through her practices in Immigration Law, she is able to attract top talent from all around the world to the region’s growing industries.
Nalini tells us about her book titled “How to Start A Law Practice and Succeed”. She says that 17 years ago when she decided to follow her dreams to open a practice of her own, that there were few tools available to help her get her start, so she took it upon herself to help future law practice owners succeed by writing her book and sharing her learned knowledge.
Nalini speaks about the ongoing and never-ending learning process of entrepreneurship and says she recently found herself admitting that she doesn’t know everything that there is to know and that’s okay! Nalini also says that a podcast may be in her future and that she really is looking forward to empowering other female attorneys in the future.
