Exclusive: Lexygen advised India-focused private equity (PE) fund Zephyr Peacock India and Singapore-based PE fund Credence Partners in their Rs 90 crore ($17m) joint investment in Singapore-based logistics company 20Cube. 20Cube was advised by Singapore law firm Alliance LLC. 

Lexygen partner Prashant Kataria with associates Amit Vyas, Vishnu Chandran and Aayushi Sharma acted for Zephyr and Credence on Indian law, as well as on leading the global due diligence assisted by Singapore law firm LawAsia senior associate Vincent Bu and Australian law firm Holding Redlich partner Darren Pereira.
