Corporate, Commercial and M&A

Corporate/Commercial Advisory and M&A are one of the core areas of practice at VNC. The last two decades have seen Indian businesses emerge from traditional slow organic growth to a much faster inorganic growth on the back of a flurry of acquisitions, takeovers, mergers and amalgamations.
