Managing and maintaining entities across borders can be an endless source of disruption, uncertainty and risk, especially if you are looking to expand into unfamiliar jurisdictions.

Global entity management (GEM) involves anything related to the creation and ongoing management of corporate structures. The challenge for businesses is to be able to manage this local complexity while maintaining a strategic global view of entity management.
