Akil Hirani, Managing Partner and Head of Transactions Practice, was quoted by The Economic Times on the topic of M&A transactions and the state of strategic deals of foreign entities foraying into India.

“Although liquidity is tightening, there is still a significant amount of dry powder available with private equity funds and corporates. Deals will continue to happen but at more sensible valuations and where they make strategic sense.
