We can help you to strategize the best way in which to expand your current company if you are considering opening a daughter / sister company in the U.S.

Question: What needs to be done in order to establish a profitable company in the U.S.? It is important to be familiar with the market opportunities that are available in the U.S. In essence, you need to establish a business plan that specifically targets the market in the U.S.

When establishing a company in the U.S. or in Great Britain it is important to consider all parts of the equation, including, legal matters, economic factors and strategic planning.

Despite the intensive information, as well as the amount of information available, it is unrealistic to think that you can do all of the preparation work by yourself without outside help.

A key element in effectively establishing a business requires you to consult someone who is both experienced and trustworthy. As an international law firm we are both helpful and competent when it comes to establishing new companies in the U.S.
