Course Overview

The course aims to enable students to handle cross-border aspects of Mergers and Acquisition (M&A) transactions, FDI and inbound investments. It also addresses tax, employment and regulatory issues for a comprehensive view of M&A deals.
A similar approach is followed with respect to institutional finance transactions (loans, syndicated loans and other credit facilities), which are critical to raising debt to run and expand business operations. The course has a significant focus on security documentation (share pledges, guarantees, mortgage deed, hypothecation and non-disposal undertaking) since high-value loans are often given only upon obtaining adequate security. The course also provides step-by-step training in conducting a due-diligence exercise and writing a due-diligence report.

M&A, investment law and perhaps even banking law constitutes large areas of practice for all major law firms. If you wish to work with well-established law firms, these are the subjects to learn well. M&A and investment lawyers mostly work at law firms, and law firms often have large banking practices too, catering to lenders as well as borrowers. Banks, NBFCs and financial institutions hire a lot of lawyers with skills in banking transactions. Knowledge of Investment law, M&A and due diligence will be an additional advantage.

Apart from tier 1 and tier 2 law firms, there are plenty of boutique law firms and many lawyers catering to startups and SMEs who also need these same skills to earn well.

India is attracting over 50 billion USD in Foreign Direct Investment every year, which has been steadily growing over the years, irrespective of economic cycles. All these deals require an increasing number of deal lawyers. External Commercial Borrowing, i.e. raising money from other countries that have lower interest rates compared to India has been increasing as RBI has been continuously relaxing norms over the years. Between 2004 and 2014, it grew seven-fold. It has also emerged as the preferred option for big companies to raise debt.

We are yet just scratching the surface. There is a lot to be done in the next three years. As a result, lawyers who can handle cross border financing transactions are in very high demand. If you want to pick up some expertise and knowledge on M&A, investment and banking laws, this is a great time if your ambition is to work as a corporate lawyer.
