We Understand Business
Our founder, Alykhan Sunderji is a former senior Amazon attorney and technology executive with over a decade of experience providing legal advice to businesses. Sunder Legal was founded on the idea of providing businesses with actionable, straightforward legal advice. We believe that legal risk is business risk and that lawyers should provide their clients with recommendations grounded in actual dollars and cents.
