International company formation

When international businesses need to tackle foreign company formation and create local companies beyond their home jurisdiction, they face a daunting mosaic of languages, business cultures, legal responsibilities and bureaucratic demands.

No matter where you need to trade or invest, we are your local incorporation experts, structuring new entities in strict compliance with local laws, regulations and official timelines (which for things like tax registrations are frequently very tight).

Because we live the local culture and speak the language, no local custom or way of working phases us. Even in jurisdictions that still require in-person submission of handwritten paperwork, we can make sure that our client’s every step is a confident one.

For private equity clients we provide dedicated fund administration and securitisation services. For real estate structures we help manage holding companies. And for international property portfolios we offer a fully-integrated, multi-jurisdictional SPV management service

The local legal frameworks governing corporate liquidation and dissolution are also many and varied, as are company formation charges and guidelines around the general formation and incorporation of a company. We help clients take the approach that is appropriate to the local jurisdiction, either by providing our own expertise and services or, if required by local law, by introducing specialist providers.
