With the privatization of majority of sectors and the opening of many of such sectors for foreign investment, Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) transactions are increasingly gaining popularity as an effective growth strategy. In the context of Nepal, while M&A are most common in the financial sector, in the last few years, hydropower, telecommunication, insurance, hospitality and manufacturing sectors too have seen a steady rise in these transactions.
Pioneer Law has a very wide range of M&A practice and owing to the experience Pioneer Law has gained over the years both in local and cross-border M&A transactions, Pioneer Law is familiar with the issues and complexities relating to such transactions and are able to provide effective solutions.
Pioneer Law has assisted clients in a variety of local and cross-border M&A transactions, including demergers, business / asset transfer, stock transfer, joint ventures and divestments. Our services in this area of practice include- (a) negotiating and drafting of the scheme of arrangement and transactions documentation, (b) tax-efficient implementation of M&A transactions, (c) carrying out legal due diligence with industry specific focus, (d) advising on legal, compliance issues and regulatory requirements, including issues relating to competition laws, and (e) procuring the governmental approvals.
Pioneer Law has also advised the Multilateral Development Agency on the review of the local M&A regime applicable to the bank and financial institutions in Nepal.
