Whether your business is large or small, at Josh and Mak International our role is to facilitate your company’s continuing growth and expansion. Our goal is to anticipate and prevent problems before they happen. Having a practice that with both extensive experience and expertise puts us in the position to represent clients in all industries. We don’t pigeonhole our attorneys to single industries, they are too skilled to be restricted to which cases they should handle. This vast experience provides our clients with a more cost effective and higher quality of service.
Business Entity Formation
Deciding how to organize your company–a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a public limited company, a private limited company, a foreign company, a liaison / branch Office or some other form of entity, can be very confusing. The business and tax aspects will vary greatly depending on this decision. We can help you establish the operating structure that is most beneficial for you and your business.
Whether representing a lending institution or a publicly or privately held business, we understand that time is money and that all loan documentation is not the same. The negotiation of such documents poses special considerations affecting your company’s future flexibility and rights. We are adept at providing this work quickly.
Commercial Paper and Business Transactions
We assist our clients in the sensitive area of creating legal documents aimed at businesses maintaining relationships with their customers, suppliers and employees. These include employment agreements, confidentiality agreements, manufacturing and supply agreements, manufacturers’ representative agreements, joint ventures and other agreements necessary in today’s competitive business environment. Sadly, we know much of the ever common litigation that we read about in this area could have been prevented. We take pride in keeping our clients out of this expensive litigation process.
We advise clients on rights and responsibilities with respect to members, directors, and shareholders. Whether it’s an indemnity clause in one’s by-laws, an insurance contract or both, the issues concerning member / director liability can have a substantial impact on one’s wealth. Advance attention to these concerns can prevent many of these problems.
