Rakesh Chatterjee

Rakesh Chatterjee is a Partner in the Delhi office of the Firm. He is a key member of the Firmís mergers, acquisitions and transactions advisory practice group.

Rakesh mainly remains focused on advising and assisting clients in the area of mergers/ acquisitions and restructuring. While his practice is largely sector agnostic, Rakesh, however, has had the opportunity to remain associated with core sector industries such as power (conventional/renewable), mines/minerals (ferrous/non-ferrous), oil & gas, cement, textiles, etc. He continues with his hands-on approach, to work closely with clients - preferably through the entire life cycle of transactions/projects. And an inherent sense of adding value, wherever possible, enables him to comprehensively advise clients in a holistic manner Ė from overseeing due diligence, advising on deal structuring, followed by closing and post closing activities through to exit, if contemplated (or becomes necessary). As part of the mergers and acquisitions practice group, Rakesh not only has advised clients on inbound foreign direct investments into India, but also has had the opportunity to coordinate with and advise Indian clients on several outbound investments across varied industries/sectors.

In addition to the above, Rakesh continues to remain engaged in providing general corporate/commercial advisory services. Over the years this practice has seen him advising clients on matters as diverse as export controls laws on dual use technologies, foreign corrupt practices laws, foreign exchange laws to handling complex defense offset provisions/defense procurement procedures.

Coupled with the foregoing, his experience in handling and providing strategic advice on shareholders' dispute/deadlock situations including management control takeovers completes his repertoire.
