Idea of the Rest The Case

Wanting to always start a business of her own, Shreya decided to start Rest The Case.

When the Pandemic hit, Shreya realized that the need for a platform like Rest The Case connecting lawyers and clients online was more than ever. People not being able to see each other face to face and to top that the lockdown brought on many legal issues with people being fired, having to abruptly move cities, etc the need for lawyers increased. Therefore, Rest The Case was born during the Covid 19 Pandemic in 2020.

Main Issues in the Journey of Rest the Case

Just like every new enterprise, Rest The Case faced certain hurdles. To begin with, the concept of a legal aggregator is fairly new and one of the biggest challenges is to make people aware of such a platform. Moreover, when it comes to legal issues, people are cautious while sharing their details as there are sensitive matters involved. Building trust and credibility in the platform can be tricky but also essential.
