The team has developed strong and nuanced expertise, advising domestic and international clients across traditional as well new-age digital / information technology sectors.

Merger control

The team has an enviable track record in obtaining merger control clearances for numerous marquee transactions and being at the forefront of India’s pivotal ‘Phase II’ investigations. The team routinely provides strategic advice on designing remedy package, divestments, integration planning, clean teams, competitor collaborations, joint venture set-ups, third-party objections to reportable mergers and strategic preparation for complex reportable transactions.

Behavioural / Enforcement

We have market leading enforcement / antitrust litigation practice, well known for raising novel substantive and procedural issues before the antitrust regulator and courts. The team has represented clients in several precedent-setting contentious matters, including the landmark judgment from the Supreme Court of India governing the imposition of CCI penalties, based on ‘relevant turnover’ and not the total turnover of the contravening enterprise.

We regularly advise domestic and international clients on the nuances of the leniency programme in India as well as on follow-on damage claims.

The team provides strategic advice on market entry, launch of new products/services, general business conduct, go-to-market strategy and risk mitigation. We have designed and implemented compliance programmes for our clients across sectors by offering a number of options ranging from targeted training sessions, interactive case studies and mock dawn raids to business-friendly online e-learning programmes.
