International Growth Strategy
When a domestic company decides to develop its international business, it pays to decide at the outset the legal and business framework the global operation should adopt.
There are a number of important issues to address, such as the tax implications of how and where to recognise income, whether to pursue a vertical retail, franchising, distribution or licensing strategy and how best to identify the right local partners.
The company also needs to decide if the foreign markets are to be developed by wholly-owned subsidiaries, joint ventures, independent local partners or a combination of these approaches.
These issues have been at the core of our practice since its foundation. With over thirty years of international experience, we have built up a wealth of expertise in guiding clients through this process.
We have also developed a global network of contacts that enables us, in many cases, to introduce our clients to suitable local partners. This is a factor that significantly differentiates us from other lawyers in this field.
