Gigio K. Ninan, Co-Founder of Shankar Ninan & Co LLP Brings More to the Table than the Average Business, Employment, and Litigation Attorney; he’s changing the practice of law by leveraging technology.

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / April 21, 2021 / Gigio Ninan, a Manhattan-based lawyer and co-founder of Shankar Ninan & Co LLP is dedicated to helping established and start-up businesses grow and maintain compliance together with helping defend them if they get sued both in New York and New Jersey. His partner, Swee Shankar is an immigration guru helping U.S. businesses hire highly-skilled foreign labor through H-1b visas and green cards, helping foreign investors obtain green cards through the EB-5 program (i.e., the investment visa or the “rich man’s” visa), and helping families bring their loved ones to America through several visa and permanent residency options.

Starting a business can be a stressful venture. Turning a business idea into a successful company is harder than it seems. Many people are blindsided by legal responsibilities before they can get their business off the ground. A common misfortune for new and established businesses is not knowing how or where to get the right legal counsel. Gigio provides many services that are critical for business growth such as complex labor and employment, outside general counseling, contract preparation and review, vendor agreements, foreign and contingent labor, and more. In 2015, Gigio realized that working under the umbrella of big law firms held him back from being the lawyer he wanted to be. He stated, “There has to be a better way to do law, this can’t be it.” Raised in the Bronx, Gigio’s father worked two full-time jobs for most of his life to support his disabled mother and elder brother who is now an active Army officer. As a result of his humble upbringing Gigio realized he needed to roll-up his sleeves and work harder to achieve his goal of making law more accessible to everyday businesses.

Ultimately, he left his big law firm and started his own practice which gave him the freedom to provide personalized services for his business clients while leveraging technology to make the practice of law more seamless. Shankar Ninan & Co LLP was born so Gigio and his firm could branch off from the norm and utilize every aspect of business law that other firms did not provide for their clients. One of his first clients was a high-tech e-commerce company that used social media marketing for product sales. Gigio helped manage their wholesale contracts, sales contracts, employment practices, and non-compete litigation. Since then, Gigio has grown his practice to working with over 200 businesses in multiple industries such as IT staffing, social media marketing, physician practice groups, pharmacies, a funeral home, doctors, restaurants, home improvement contractors, high-end furniture manufacturers, physical therapists and SaaS companies, among other individual clients.

It is critical to have an experienced legal team who takes over the legal responsibilities and gives business owners the freedom to focus more on what they love to do. Gigio makes it his mission to provide top-tier services for his clients making their legal worries disappear or at the very least mitigate them. Coming from a family that values hard work and consistency, Gigio is the lawyer that every company needs in its corner. Combined with his experience and expertise in the field of business and employment law, he guarantees high-quality work that is detail-oriented and responsive. He stated, “The only way people are going to like you is by responding to them and that’s the type of personalized service I like to provide. I don’t rely on lead generation and SEO to build my client base. I go out and build meaningful relationships and give my clients real results.”

Gigio has worked on high-profile legal matters. For example, Gigio represented a New Jersey landlord against NFL player Janoris Jenkins, the former starting cornerback for the New York Giants in an arbitration involving the homicide committed by Janoris’ brother within the home resulting in a stigma damage, among other physical damage to the home. Prior to retaining Gigio, his client terminated their relationship with Duane Morris, an Am Law 75 law firm and hired him who took the case through arbitration. The arbitrator ultimately found in favor of Gigio’s client after extensive discovery, expert testimony, and pre and post arbitration statements, and also awarded counsel fees in his favor pursuant to the Lease. Moreover, Gigio then had to file an application to the confirm the arbitration in New Jersey Superior Court under docket MID-L-64-21, which was ultimately confirmed by the Assignment Judge of Middlesex County Michael Toto for force collection on the award. In turn, Gigio after the award was confirmed, he requested the Clerk enter a statewide lien under judgment number J-0121675-21.

Gigio and his firm dedicate their time to being ten steps ahead of the game, eliminating possible barriers that keep a business or its owners from reaching their full potential.
