A K Mylsamy

Founding Partner

AKM 55
The Rise and Beyond

Born and raised in an agricultural family, I was (and continue to remain) passionate about farming. My family and friends re-oriented my thinking towards taking up law as a profession. Once I got into law, there was no looking back. It was my true calling.

Tête-à-tête
with A K Mylsamy

On the occasion of the Law Tree completing its 50th edition, the team wanted an insight into the life of our founder Mr. A K Mylsamy. We tossed a few phrases and he was at his candid best.
Childhood

Being born and raised in an agricultural family in Coimbatore, I did my schooling in Coimbatore. I always stood first in class and also managed a double promotion! Though I was not inclined to towards civil services, I was very keen on learning textile technology and take it from there.

Law(yer)

After schooling, I went on to study in Loyola College, Chennai. On the advice and suggestions from family and friends I decided to make a career out of law. Though Im a lawyer by chance, I became passionate about law and have been practicing law since.

First Experience in Court

Timid and nervous in my very first case, I slowly overcame my consciousness through practice. The faith my seniors had in me along with my “never give up” attitude help me transform into a self-confident and well-read lawyer.

The Court Room Scenario - Then and Now

In all my 55 years of practice (and counting), I have been witnessing sea of change in the legal profession. While there are quality lawyers who practice with a high standard of professional ethics and sound legal knowledge, it is concerning that the latest entrants seem to be out to make a quick buck and focus less on learning or ethics.

Court Craft

Patience, Perseverance, staying updated with current laws and a lot of hard work will take you a long way in life.

Success Mantra

Failure is the stepping stone to success.

Daily Routine

A firm believer of “early to bed and early to rise”. If that is in place, then there is no stopping you!
I go to bed around 8:30-9pm and wake up around 3:45am. I go to the beach for a walk with my dog and come back to get ready for work.

Staying Updated

READ. Every day, one should read. It might be easier to take your phone out and read or browse online for information. But nothing compares to the feel of holding a book and learning.

Advisory Board Speaks

Hear from our esteemed Advisory members – experts and eminent people from law and various verticals of the industry.

The Decade of Innovations
Roots to Wings

I have always believed that sharing knowledge is the only way to grow. This is because growth means continuous development. Having a specific skill set makes you proficient in a specific area.

Laws are evolving on daily basis. In order to stay abreast with current laws in practice aimed at enriching knowledge for professionals, students and managements across companies alike, we intended to create and maintain reservoir of knowledge that could be shared on regular basis.

In the Millenium
Going Places

I’ve had the privilege of giving birth – first, to my beautiful daughter Sahana and then to my brain child “The Law Tree”. Having majored in fine arts alongside being a qualified lawyer, my idea was to integrate law and creativity and create a newsletter which was totally away from the run of the mill legal newsletters. It was important to break the monotony and come up with something novel. Thinking out of the box is a common thread between art and law.

The Law tree came into existence to satisfy twin objectives of spreading knowledge of the law amongst professionals / laymen and doing so in simple, artistic, colourful and fun manner.

The Future Legacy

From the Millenial
Sahana Suman

First of all, I liked the way all the categories are separate. The page layout is excellent. The idea of having different colours for all editions is great. Im able to understand better the legal words when they have cartoon illustrations. Also, it is a very nice thought to add a quote towards the end. I feel that the newsletter is very, very, very, very, very good!

When I started reading the Law Tree, I loved it very much. I am sure if the newsletter is available for everybody, they will all love it as much as I do. The Law Tree rocks!
