Khaitan establishes Fellowship in Mergers & Acquisitions at GNLU

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&As) have been
playing crucial role in the transformation of the industrial sector of India,
even before the independence of India. As the Indian Inc, weathering through
the tough times, look forward to generate cost efficiency through economies of
scale, to enhance revenue through gain in market share and generate tax gains,
robust research in legal and regulatory frameworks of India and abroad is
essential. With an aim to serve the corporate houses, governmental departments,
PSUs, law firms, Khaitan & Co has initiated a dedicated fellowship program
in M&As at the GNLU.

As M&As are beneficial when a firm wants (a) to
enter a new market, (b)  to introduce new
products through research and development, (c) to achieve administrative
benefits, (d) to increased market share, (e) to lower cost of operation and/or
production, (f) to gain higher competitiveness, (g) for industry know how and
positioning, (h) for Financial leveraging, (i) to improve profitability and
EPS, sustained legal research, training and policy discussions are critically

Under the program, the GNLU-Khaitan M&As Fellow
will provide sound and sustained legal research, drafting, training and
educational assistance to M&A stakeholders. Further, GNLU will provide a
forum for discussion, research and study of global and national M&A legal
and regulatory frameworks; will organize workshops, training seminars for the
stakeholders, etc.; publish policy-papers, reports on status and carry out
surveys on cutting-edge issues and provide high quality legal research and
study materials, including policy papers on a pro bono or sponsorship basis.

The fellowship will enable GNLU to acquire and
augment latest literature resources, books, journals, magazines. In other
words, it will become a hub for M&A knowledge base. GNLU will be able to
organize issue-specific strategic discussions and training programs for India

Khaitan & Co is one of the premier law firms of
India and has been known for its excellence legal services for more than a
