Competition / Antitrust


The Competition practice of the Firm is spread across its seven (7) offices in India and handles a wide variety of matters including merger control, abuse of dominance and cartelization for domestic, multinational and public sector undertakings.

The Firm advises its clientele across diverse sectors on critical competition law issues including:

• cartel enforcement and abuse of dominance from a practical and business perspective arising out of mergers, acquisitions, and corporate restructuring across borders.

• compliance audits and online advocacy to marketing, finance employees, Board members, trade associations.

• conducting mock drills and compliances on dawn raids, etc.

• review of responses to the routine industry specific questionnaires of regulators

As the Indian regulator is constantly evolving ways and means to inculcate a healthy culture of competition amongst industries, companies face the two-fold challenge of navigating the regulations and the attendant risks (including reputational risks) while trying to close transactions within limited timeframe. The Firm has, over the years, developed expertise in advising clients in anticipating and dealing with risks thereby reducing transaction timelines.
