Entrepreneurs: Company Setup and Other Startup Services

Entrepreneurs face a multitude of challenges as they launch and grow their startup business. With limited resources, entrepreneurs need to focus on their core business competencies from the get go. They don't need the distraction of dealing with legal formalities to meet key commercial objectives such as capital raising, protecting intellectual property and hiring employees. Nor do they need the distraction of having to ponder key structural issues for their startup:

  • How can they protect their personal assets from the creditors of their startup?

  • How can they limit taxes on their startup to protect precious working capital?

  • How can they ensure that they comply with applicable laws and avoid penalties, civil liabilities or reputational risks from falling afoul of legal and regulatory requirements?
