Victus, a Latin expression, refers to something that nourishes and sustains life. It is Bains Legal’s practice group that focuses on PE/VC funds as well as start-ups. Bains Legal’s advises financial investors on structuring their investments in India through trusts, limited liability partnerships, companies or other suitable entity structures, including advice on the Indian regulatory and tax (onshore and offshore) regime. We also assist investors in conducting due diligence of their portfolio companies and possess the requisite expertise to understand and evaluate business and legal risks across a range of sectors. With respect to start-ups, our role is not just limited to giving advice on legal aspects of the business but to counsel on their business as well as valuation and approach strategies for potential investors. Our continuous goal is to handhold start-ups from inception onwards.
