Company establishment and corporate structuring

The structure of a new business is very crucial and should be taken into consideration already at the very initial stage. Decisions made at this stage will significantly impact the business going forward. Building the right corporate structure and restructuring obsolete or incomplete structures is therefore key for organizations to remain agile and competitive in the market. We advise organizations on their corporate (re-) structuring requirements in line with local jurisdictional and regulatory frameworks and best practice to suit optimally their particular business structures, growth ambitions and protect against organizational and external risks.

We support organisations in establishing highly efficient, dynamic, responsible and compliant boards and committees by assisting as non-executive board members and external corporate advisors. We can add value by providing highly relevant advisory services to critical corporate legal and governance matters and thereby create awareness and mitigate legal risk enabling to improve significantly decision-making processes.
