Company establishment, liquidation
Your local presence in Russia should suit your business strategy and available resources. We can help you make a choice for a Russian limited liability company, branch or other and advise how to take care of their respective management and administration requirements. Of course we can take care of the bureaucratic Russian registration procedure for you in setting up a company, or winding it up.
When your subsidiary is not wholly-owned but a joint venture with a Russian partner it is important to set out the rights and obligations of the shareholders in a shareholders’ agreement. We have been able to play a useful role in such negotiations based on our legal knowledge, our language and cultural expertise.
Mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, Anti-Monopoly
There can be different reasons for restructuring of companies or mergers and acquisitions. In all cases good communications and co-ordination between various international advisors/parties are essential. Tax experts must be involved or will be leading in designing efficient schemes. Please make sure to consider also anti-monopoly issues.
We have completed a number of large due diligence investigations on behalf of our clients to provide them a thorough basis for their decision about an intended purchase as well as the appropriate pricing and other conditions. Due diligence investigates all possible contingencies with relation to corporate compliance, labor issues, intellectual property, real estate, taxation, environment etc.
In a start-up phase, or for other reasons you may not have the right manager available to manage your Russian company. Juralink can act as a management company for your subsidiary, acting always on the basis of your instructions. We regularly take on the function of corporate secretary and provide support in corporate housekeeping. We have a network of local service partners who may provide corporate accounting (LowLands) and HR services (Juralink G-Nius). They are experienced professionals and will save you time and headaches.
