Shreya Mukherjee is a Partner in the Corporate and Commercial, Mergers and Acquisitions and Private Equity practice group in the Mumbai office. She is dual-qualified and admitted to practice in India and in New York (United States).
Shreya has advised clients across the board – promoters/founders, private equity investors, sovereign wealth funds, corporate strategic investors (both domestic and foreign) – in a wide range of general corporate and M&A mandates across sectors, including complex structuring, strategic investments and exits, private equity investments, business transfers / asset transfers and corporate restructurings.
Shreya’s special focus is on mandates in the financial services space (including, mutual funds (MF), banks, NBFCs, insurance) and she has extensive experience in this area – both on transactional and regulatory aspects. She also collaborates with financial sector regulators to support policy development. Recently, Shreya played an active role in advocating for the private equity and venture capital (PE and VC) community (through the Indian Venture Capital Association (IVCA)) by engaging with the IRDAI (Indian insurance regulator) and made several submissions and presentations to the IRDAI in this regard. This resulted in the overhaul of the insurance sector investment framework via the introduction of IRDAI (Registration of Indian Insurance Companies) Regulations, 2022. She has also made similar submissions to SEBI (Indian securities regulator) which culminated into investor-friendly amendments being introduced in the MF investment regime in 2023 (including PE funds being permitted to become ‘sponsors’ of an MF).
