This involves investigation into a company you might wish to work with. It covers legal, commercial (and sometimes political) investigation into the entity, and usually some investigation into the individual behind that entity.
We take a contract that you are comfortable with, for example a supply contract or a distribution contract, and make sure it works in a foreign country. At the very least we check that the dispute resolution and execution blocks work, and consider any clauses that might be inapplicable (or perhaps even illegal) to enforce in that country.
This is often part of contract acclimatisation but is also a standalone service. When it comes to the law, word-for-word language translation simply isn’t good enough. Because we translate with context, we ensure that the translation is sensitive to the specific legal meanings of words, and also that an appropriate language clause is inserted into the contract where necessary.
We make sure your operations are being conducted in accordance with local requirements and highlight any risks or issues you might not have known to ask about.
