With the privatization of majority of sectors and the opening of many of such sectors for foreign investment, Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) transactions are increasingly gaining popularity as an effective growth strategy. Firm has advised and acted for several clients in relation to mergers and acquisitions in general and also acquisition of assets and employees of another company over the past years. On account of our strong client base amongst IT companies where employees are the biggest asset, we have considerable experience in handling transfer of employees from one company to the other along with asset purchase, novation and transfer of other rights such as leasehold rights and service provider contracts.

The key to negotiating successfully in relation to mergers and acquisition is knowledge superiority and facts obtained on the target company through conducting appropriate due diligence. Our advice to our clients has been to know as much as one can about the target company.
