Education is a lifelong journey. This is particularly true in current times and none of us regardless of age, circumstance or position can meet our potential if we stop learning. We established the Fortune Law Academy in 2017 to enable us as a firm to share our legal knowledge, skills and experience with our founder community. This led to our partnership with Imperial College Business School where Shainul now teaches “Law for Entrepreneurs” on their Executive MBA course.
