Merger and Acquisition
Merger and acquisition (M&A) refers to the process of combining two or more companies, or the acquisition of one company by another. M&A can take various forms, including merger, acquisition, joint venture, and strategic alliance.
In India, M&A is governed by the Companies Act, 2013 and the Competition Act, 2002, as well as other relevant laws and regulations. The Companies Act, 2013 sets out the legal framework for the merger and acquisition of companies in India, including the procedures and requirements for merger and acquisition transactions. The Competition Act, 2002, on the other hand, regulates anti-competitive practices in India, including mergers and acquisitions that may result in a substantial lessening of competition.
If you are considering a merger or acquisition in India, it is important to seek the advice of a lawyer who has experience in this area of law and is familiar with the relevant laws and regulations. A lawyer can help you navigate the M&A process and ensure that the transaction is completed in compliance with all legal requirements.
