As a business grows, its legal needs will change over time. This is so not least when a business is about to expand into a new geographic market, whether westward or eastward. We work with ambitious young companies, as well as with more mature firms. Typically, we stay close to the business activities of our clients. We believe this allows us to work efficiently, and to craft legal solutions that cater to the specific situation at hand. By having an in-depth understanding of the needs of our client, we are able to adjust our offering as the client executes on its business plan.
When we speak of the legal needs of entrepreneurs, what we have in mind are legal areas at the core of running a business, such as for example negotiating and drafting joint venture and other types of long term cooperation agreements, general terms and conditions for the supply of goods or services, and employment contracts. Often, intellectual property protection matters need to be taken care of as well. We also consider, in advance, what the best dispute resolution method and venue might be in the event that disagreements arise later on with different partners. If things do not go according to plan, especially in a foreign country, having effective access to neutral dispute resolution is critical for the protection of the value of the business.
We are mindful of an entrepreneur’s need to preserve bandwidth for business development, and therefore aim to deliver solutions that have been tested over time with a minimum of “legal fuss”.
