India has a complicated and detailed exchange control regime. We have extensive experience working with foreign investors on their India strategy and also guiding them through the regulatory framework for foreign investment – whether this relates to acquisitions or setting up of greenfield or joint ventures.
We advise corporations through all stages of the business life cycle, including:
• Choosing and establishing the appropriate business entity
• Securing venture capital/ private equity funding
• Exploring opportunities for inorganic growth
• Advising on business and operational restructuring
• Ensuring ongoing legal and regulatory compliance
• Working through dissolution and other exit strategies.
Our partners appreciate the differing economic characteristics across various sectors, and have developed deep domain knowledge of heavily regulated sectors such as banking, mutual funds, insurance, stock and commodities exchanges.
In private equity, our lawyers regularly act as external counsel to some of the biggest and most prestigious private equity firms in the world, India-focused multilateral financial institutions and sovereign wealth funds, and domestic private equity and venture capital firms. Complementing our private equity practice group is our investment funds practice group, which advises private equity firms on setting up their India-focused funds, both onshore as well as offshore.
