Cushman and Wakefield, the commercial real estate services firm, has acquired the entire team of @Lemongrass, a real estate consultancy firm in Kolkata and eastern India, in a bid to augment its Kolkata operations, BL states.

With this acquisition, Abhijit Das- Founder and MD of Lemongrass Advisors, will lead the Kolkata operations as the new Office Director for the East.

The acquisition is unique in the sense that a corporate takeover was avoided in this instance to avert regulatory hassles and other necessary processes such as due diligence. Being a service company, talent is the real asset of a company, so C&W opted for talent acquisition.

Lemongrass will die natural death after three years when all receiveables of the company is obtained as per existing contracts.

C&W was planning to enter Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. While it will set up office in Dhaka by 2014, Sri Lanka may follow a year later.
