Our International Business Formation Services
There are several advantages to hiring an international business formation lawyer. Business formation attorneys can mitigate start-up risks and provide sound financial advice. Additionally, having a legal representative from the beginning can prevent future disputes. At Harris Sliwoski, our attorneys offer essential global business formation services, including:
Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprises
Doing business in China offers several advantages, from attractive tax incentives to profitable investment opportunities. With our extensive knowledge of China’s business formation laws, we can assist our clients in investing in wholly foreign-owned enterprises (WFOE). We can support you with legal advice, contract drafting and international dispute resolution.
Joint ventures can yield sizable profits and grow your business. However, international joint venture agreements can be complex and may put your intellectual property and liabilities at risk should one of the joint venture parties violate the agreement. That’s why having an international lawyer on call is beneficial if these problems arise.
Instead of opening a business in a foreign country, you may choose to establish a representative office to manage your investments. Harris Sliwoski can help you open a representative office by assisting with the necessary permits and licenses. We will also keep you informed on the laws and regulations that representative offices must adhere to in their respective countries.
Other International Entity Formation Services
Our attorneys can also assist with other pivotal international business formation services, such as:
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Intellectual property protection
- International contracts and agreements
- Inbound and outbound international transactions
