Corporate & Commercial

As former corporate counsels, our lawyers 'smelled the powder' of corporate life and had the chance to deal with probably all kind of legal issues a large corporation faces.

Foreign and multi-national corporations choose us to get advice on the legal environment of doing business in Moldova, including licensing, competition control, minimum equity or qualification requirements, import-export regime and repatriation, employment and expats regime, employee share allotment programs. We aim at providing a comprehensive approach, to include councelling on best legal way to enter the market (distributorship, joint venture, setting up a Moldovan entity, branch or representative office, etc.), establishment and registration of local outfits, obtainment of the required business authorizations and permits and assistance in the day-to-day business. Some of our clients elected to outsource to us the legal function entirely, in other cases we work in close contact with in-house counsels, sharing our expertise and learning from theirs.

We pledge our experience in helping businesses to achieve commercial synergy, by crafting partnerships, joint-ventures, fiduciary administration arrangements, co-financing and structured finance schemes, and protect our client's interest during the business relation and upon profit sharing. Clients sought our advice in corporate restructures, including merger and spin-off, divesture and transformation from public into private company. Whenever a client wants to determine a desired course of events, we are ready to help in drawing up the most protective shareholders arrangements or investment contracts.

Many years of experience as corporate secretary allow our Managing Partner to counsel clients on the best way of dealing with corporate governance matters, including meetings of governing bodies, lines of authorities and responsibilities within the organization, related party transactions, large scale transactions, compliance and internal control, shareholders protection.
