Check-in guides

In today’s ever increasing global market place, organisations often look to enter new markets by setting up operations in new jurisdictions - whether that’s through organic growth or through strategic M&A activity.

When expanding into new territories, it is important to realise the importance of getting the right legal advice to not only make you more effective from the outset, but to ensure that you don’t run into problems at a later stage. There are many things to consider, but if you do nothing else, you should:

  • seek local legal expertise
  • start preparing early
  • decide on your immigration strategy
  • protect your intellectual property, decide on the most appropriate method of trading (and seek appropriate commercial and tax advice)
  • check compliance and regulatory requirements
  • review your compliance programme, and if considering an acquisition, take the appropriate due diligence measures.
