Mergers and Acquisitions

Our M&A team comprises lawyers who have worked on some of the largest M&A transactions in India. Our M&A expertise covers mergers, public and private acquisitions, change of control events, private equity transactions, joint ventures, share purchases, business / asset sales and capital reduction. Apart from drafting transaction documents, we assist clients with legal due diligence, deal structuring from legal and regulatory perspectives and provide legal support for transition and integration issues.

Within the broad M&A practice, competition (anti-trust), foreign exchange and employee migration issues are our special focus areas. Outbound M&As is one other area of focus and our membership of CICERO helps Indian clients with immediate access and support in outbound M&A transactions.
