Krishnan heads the firm’s Corporate & Commercial practice in Bangalore. With extensive experience in Mergers & Acquisitions and Private Equity, coupled with a proven record in architecting investor as well as promoter-controlled deals, he is highly sought-after by leading private equity funds and new-age entrepreneurs alike, for advice on complex transactions. 


Krishnan has represented renowned foreign investors, both strategic and financial, in their staggering investments into Indian companies and has represented several domestic clients in their key outbound investments. He regularly advises clients on a wide range of general corporate and commercial matters. 

Prior to joining Fox Mandal, Krishnan headed his own law firm, iCounsel, where he walked-the-deal with founders of the likes of Bundl Technologies (Swiggy – Series A), NIFE (acquired by TÜV Rheinland), LogFire (acquired by Oracle), KnowledgeHut (majority stake transferred to UpGrad), Hug Innovations (acqui-hired by Titan Industries) and Ojus-ATM (a strategic collaboration in the healthcare space). 

He counts on his leanings for deep research and nuanced drafting the most. His predisposition towards maintaining a low personal profile makes him a highly approachable legal professional. His clients appreciate him for his ability to efficiently guide them through the complexities of the law and for handholding them through the entire lifecycle of the deal.
