Foreign Direct Investment

Without a proper review of FDI guidelines at the start of a transaction, a transaction can be exposed to multiple legal challenges which can lead to increased costs.

 

The growth and enhancement of FDI systems globally coupled with an expansion of industries accentuate the need for effective FDI advisory support from a transaction’s inception through its completion. Advance preparation of an investment strategy is invaluable to obtaining timely approval for transactions consistent with deal objectives.

 

Investments, with the advice of legal experts equipped with optimal legal FDI knowledge, can be structured in multiple ways and simplify many tedious details involved in entering a new jurisdiction. A&A is known as one of the leading FDI consultants in India and legal advisors for the India Entry Strategy. Over a period of time, the firm has carved out a niche in the area of structuring foreign investment and assisting investors, companies, businesses and venture capital funds in entering India in a legally compliant and cost-effective manner.

Our experience in cross-border transactions and India Entry Strategy has given us an in-depth understanding of the various issues that arise when a foreign entity makes an investment in India. A&A’s team of lawyers enable investors and businesses to navigate through the ever-evolving and increasingly challenging regulatory landscapes while assisting them every step of the way to be fully integrated and compliant with the laws and regulations of the land.


A&A’s experienced teams develop and implement comprehensive structures to ensure investment transactions are successful, completed in a timely manner and meet the deal objectives and agenda. At the same time, the firm recognises the crucial need to ensure that companies can access their legal expertise at any time in moving investments forward, if and when legal issues arise. A&A arms its advice with the latest information on related FDI regulations, laws and rulings and seeks to attain the best possible outcome for investors and companies.    

  

A&A regularly supports businesses, investors, private equity funds and venture capital funds to form or invest in business entities for international mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, teaming agreements, tender documents, development and marketing partnerships, foreign distribution, and other investment agreements. Businesses from every industry are continuously looking for new ways to raise capital and are seeking out new opportunities, A&A assists in isolating the best opportunities for their clients based on their goals.
