Pranav is the CEO and Founder of ELF Partners Pte Ltd, a company that provides consultancy services to litigants who require litigation funding. Apart from connecting litigants to the funders, ELF helps with the initial due diligence of a matter by evaluating the legal merits of the case, a quantum analysis of the claim amount, and an investigation into the assets of the other side, thus helping make a consolidated pitch to the funder.
