Trilegal guides sale through during lockdown


In General Electric’s (GE) sale of its biopharmaceutical business to Danaher for US$21 billion, the Trilegal team supporting the multinational worked on the closing process while the COVID-19 lockdown in India was in place.

“This led to various challenges in logistics, co-ordination and execution,” Trilegal senior associate Aditi Jain told India Business Law Journal.
