Establishing a Business Entity in the U.S.

The U.S. has long been a stable and inviting market for foreign investors. The U.S. is a country known for "doing business", however, there are many challenges, both on international and U.S.-specific levels, which must be addressed to ensure effective and efficient operations in the U.S.
 
The U.S. has extensive and, for foreigners, unfamiliar tax reporting requirements and frequent tax law changes. The tax requirements alone mandate close cooperation with professionals experienced in these matters.  As our client, you ultimately decide the level of assistance that you need, but if you have asked us to analyze and keep you abreast of Federal, state, and local requirements we have the knowledge and expertise to meet your needs.
 
Your venture into the U.S. market must be thoroughly planned in advance to avoid obstacles to your company's economic success. Selecting the optimal entity and capital structures for the U.S. business is an early and critical process, one in which we will work closely with you. We then usher you through the start-up phase, smoothing as much as possible the significant bookkeeping, financial reporting, payroll, and tax reporting requirements. Even seemingly minor technical language barriers or imprecise communications with federal, state, or local tax authorities can quickly lead to difficulties, which may put your successful start-up at risk. As a client, we hope that you will take advantage of our expertise and ask us to analyze your situation and requirements.
 

Acquisitions - Transaction Services

Very often our foreign investor clients enter into or expand their U.S. market presence via acquisition of an existing U.S. business. The purpose of such acquisitions may be to expand vertically or horizontally in the client's industry, or to invest passively for personal return. Because of the varying sizes of our clients and the variety of industries they represent, the internal resources that they bring to bear on their acquisition activities range from strong in-house teams to single dominant executives. Whatever the resources, we complement them as required.
 
Some clients turn to us only for due diligence of an acquisition target. Others rely on us for everything from acquisition strategy through analysis, including assistance with negotiations. 
 

Joint Ventures and Distribution Agreements

We are frequently consulted by clients considering entry into the U.S. market or expansion of U.S. activities via a Joint Venture with either a U.S. business partner or a foreign entity. Sometimes the initial U.S. market entry strategy is via a distribution agreement with an independent U.S. based third party. Our experience with these market entry strategies will assist you to avoid the oft-observed pitfalls within Joint Ventures and Distribution Arrangements.
  

Site Selection Assistance

If you decide to venture into the U.S. market with a "green field" entry, we stand ready to assist you in making informed, comparative decisions about where to locate your new business. We will assist you, at your request, in dealing with state and local authorities to ensure that you benefit from available economic development incentive programs. Our experience in this will area will enable us to make introductions to other service providers that you may require in settling into a new facility or occupying an existing facility.
