Kian, check the heading. A few zeros appear to be missing from the deal value.

1 AZB partner versus 20 Sam lawyers. How many SAM lawyers does it take to change a light bulb?

If you have some idea about M&A, you would have known why buyer requires a battery of lawyers as against just one lawyer may be enough for selling party for obvious reasons. Please be respectful towards SAM team as well as some of them are accomplished lawyers.

The transaction comprises the acquisition by TASL of 1. The defence business of Tata Power by a scheme of arrangement, 2. The defence business of Tata Motors by a separate scheme of arrangement, 3. 100 percent of the share capital of TAL, and 4. 100 percent of the share capital of TAML.

The article headline deals with only 1. above is therefore incorrect. HSA advised the seller on 1 above and AZB advised the seller on 2 above. SAM advised the buyer on all four.
