International Services Team
Entering a foreign jurisdiction without the right legal back-up can be dangerous for a company establishing their presence. There are different requirements to stay in good standing, delays in entering a country can impact your entity’s objectives, language barriers multiply time and effort, and staying compliant is challenging without local legal knowledge.
The international team here at Agile Legal will be able to maintain your legal endeavors whether it’s international subsidiary management, directorships and management, or anti-money laundering services, etc. Our international team is comprised of legal professionals who have worked in the likes of Washington D.C. for international conglomerates in anti-fraud, compliance, and market research for over some 20+ years each.
Our team has a grasp on the legal red tape that can be expected when establishing your entity in another country, whether the U.S. or somewhere else, the Agile Legal International team can lead the way for your foreign endeavors. The process is easy; You get in touch with a legal project coordinator who becomes your single point of contact for your legal projects and acts as a liaison between your entity and the legal professionals working on your international legal projects. This simplifies communication so that you have a responsive and resourceful representative to rely on.
We see the confusion that can occur without the legal resources and experience to establish a foreign entity. Attempting to mitigate your foreign entity without the knowledge of international compliance and governance opens room for risk of financial consequences. Have confidence knowing Agile Legal will guide your foreign business endeavors.
