CORE FOCUS

Private Funds and
Asset Management

Our core practice is centred around funds and asset management, and we have extensive expertise in advising on the various aspects in the lifecycle of an investment fund.

Private Equity/
M&A

Our private equity practise is driven by a practical understanding of the vulnerabilities of offshore financial sponsors, LP-GP relationships, and importantly, governance standards required by fund managers.

Infrastructure and
InvITs

Infrastructure Investment Trusts (“InvITs“) and infrastructure is a core specialism of the firm. In 2019 alone, members of the team have advised some of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds, pension funds, and leading global financial sponsors on some of the largest and pioneering transactions in the space with overall deal values exceeding USD 5 billion.

Tax Structuring & Litigation

A specialism that we take pride in is our understanding of cross-border tax issues. The role of a tax advisor has generally been undertaken by accounting firms, but each tax position taken needs to be validated under law. In our prior dealings, we have seen lack of tax-enabled advisory as a huge handicap in managing and executing high-stakes transactions.

Public
Equity

Public M&A is arguably the most nuanced field of deal-making in India, considering the myriad legislations and constantly evolving corporate governance practices.

Private Credit/
Structured Finance

Our private credit / structured finance team specializes in high yield private debt transactions (primarily foreign debt), mezzanine debt infusions and securitization of different asset classes.

Stakeholder Governance and
Stewardship

Stakeholder governance has occupied centre-stage in the context of complex corporate transactions in the public M&A sphere.
