Why do lawyers need to know company law? As a litigation lawyer and then as an in-house lawyer, it did not make sense to me, at least in the beginning.
Then I realised all roads lead to company laws if you are dealing with any company or other entities covered under the companies laws! It is the very basis of all activities, actions, decisions, dispute resolution, etc.
For instance, what is the extent of interference or involvement of NCLT in IBC proceedings? Do they intervene at every stage of the IBC proceedings, while the resolutions are in the works, or only when they are finalised?
The Supreme Court posed this question to the NCLT and stated NCLT shall stall proceedings before finalisation of a resolution plan must stop and the tribunal should not be allowed to intervene till the committee of creditors took a final view.
Corporate law experts are in high demand with all kinds of businesses, law firms, MNCs, etc. With the changing laws and regulations, they need experts to comply with them and find creative strategies in order to accommodate the business requirements.
In the famous acquisition deal of Flipkart by Walmart, there were teams of lawyers from both sides, trying to figure out the optimal way for approval of the merger. There were strategies planned in order to structure the transaction such that, the deal was approved by CCI.
