Today, businesses face a myriad challenges when striving to reach strategic goals while protecting stakeholder interests. That’s why we promises to deliver responsive and practical solutions to complex situations in the modern M&A marketplace.

As a sought-after law firm for mergers and acquisitions, we have represented both buyers and sellers in multiple transactions. Our team of lawyers possess expertise across diverse industries, such as energy, infrastructure, construction and pharmaceuticals. We have successfully handled private equity and public mergers and acquisitions and played a crucial role in some of the largest M&A transactions in Sri Lanka.

Since these transactions can be complicated, thorough attention to detail is imperative.

We provide start-to-finish assistance in the M&A process including evaluation, negotiation, structuring, documentation and closing the deal. Through our subsidiary company CAS we also offer creative tax solutions to our clients.

With a wealth of experience in advising major Chinese and Indian clients on structured inbound investment, we possess an in-depth understanding of the legal and regulatory frameworks governing cross-border transactions. At our core, we are committed to providing our clients with efficient, cost-effective and results-driven legal services. Our approach is to work closely with our clients to gain a thorough understanding of their business objectives so we could tailor our legal solutions to meet their unique needs and goals.
