For corporates, M&A have increasingly been touted as the preferred means to consolidate, diversify and grow in line with rapid changes in the economic and industrial landscape across the globe. While, there are plenty of organizations which provide an insight into M&A laws and practice, we believe there is scope for a much deeper understanding of this dynamic area of law which can flow from sculpted study and research. Therein, lies the importance of pursuing 'M&A' as a discipline in itself and provides the objective for establishing the, 'GNLU-Khaitan & Co. on Mergers and Acquisitions laws, policies and practices' at Gujarat National Law University.
