Meet the team
Founder and Chief Strategy Officer
Neil founded Bagchi Law in 2008 after recognizing that the way big law firms do business is inefficient. He wanted to shift the focus from the bottom line to customer service. Neil was inspired to offer sophisticated, global, and legal expertise as it relates to commercial transactions. He wanted to ensure these services were available to entrepreneurs, early-stage, and mid-sized companies alike.
However, Neil didn’t always want to practice law. He’d hoped to join law enforcement after university, but he became fascinated with how businesses work in the process. For nearly five years, Neil served as an attorney for notable firms. He realized there was a better way to serve clients without the excessive overhead of a large law firm. Neil knew that clients could get the same value in a boutique law firm, and provide a higher touch. It wasn’t long before he founded Bagchi Law, a firm that delivers value through client-centric care and solutions. Also, the firm’s ethos includes giving back to the community by doing pro bono work for entrepreneurs and nonprofits.
Two years ago, Neil noticed that clients need more than legal advice. They required a 360° solution. A solution that includes business strategy, financial matters, and other functions that legal counsel may not address. Neil set out to bring on new team members with these skills and build an all-in-one solution-provider. Within two years, he formed the Bagchi Group. As the founder of Bagchi Law and Bagchi Group, Neil has a reputation for delivering responsive, collaborative, and innovative solutions that challenge the default.

Neil enjoys being active. He even had the opportunity to play semi-pro rugby for two years immediately after completing his bachelor’s degree. But with his rugby days now behind him, Neil loves to pair outdoor activities with quality family time with his wife and daughter.
Tyler began his professional journey in Maryland as a chemist but it wasn’t long before his interests turned to study law. While earning his Juris Doctor at the UNC School of Law, Tyler served as an intern in-house with two large tech companies. It was during these summer internships where his roots in the triangle began to take hold and Tyler’s focus on corporate law grew.
Most recently, before joining Bagchi Law, Tyler was an Attorney with a North Carolina firm where he assisted clients with full-service mergers and acquisitions. Tyler is also skilled at drafting and filing organizational documents with various states and has an acute awareness of building client relationships.

Tyler was impressed by the progressive and dynamic energy at Bagchi Law and how they were partnering with clients, giving back to the community, and providing a more personal consult. In particular, Tyler was excited about the opportunities Bagchi Law offered with a strong reach outside of the region including international clients.
When he is not working to help clients at Bagchi Law, Tyler enjoys long drives including meandering through the North Carolina mountains. Tyler also finds rest and relaxation through painting and drawing which he’s been doing for well over 25 years.
