Dipankar and Krishnayan have had a long association. They are both alumni of NUJS Kolkata, met on campus in early 2000 and thereafter went on to setup a law firm called Verus in 2011.

Verus was founded in a small room in Mumbai, but in a very short time went on to scale its operations to four cities and was also awarded ‘The Best New Law Firm’ in 2012 by the Indian Law Journal. Verus aimed to be a new-age law firm, which would blend expertise and energy to build long term partnerships with clients.

After many successes in their law firm practice, Dipankar and Krishnayan decided to foray into using data science and information technology to provide an even better customer experience and more importantly to make justice more accessible to the common man. This was the beginning of Riverus!
