Georgia’s booming tourism encourages investment in hospitality and real estate.
The fast-spreading electronic commerce and local online services provide countless opportunities for hi-tech joint ventures and more risk-averse projects alike. Other industries popular among investors include energy, driven by the search for alternative energy sources and agriculture.
International investors require professional assistance with the assessment of risks that go with the acquisition of a Georgian business.
At CIS LONDON we expertly evaluate legal and regulatory risks of doing business in the region, and we do that by recruiting highly skilled local professionals who share our passion for providing practical and clear local legal service.
We assist our clients with legal due diligence exercises in relation to various cross-border projects.
Our comprehensive due diligence service encompasses in-depth enquiry into corporate, employment, commercial and IP affairs of the target company, as well as the rigorous assessment of its compliance with relevant regulations.
In the course of due diligence, we assess the standing of any local counterparties and provide legal advice on all aspects of financing a counterparty or setting up and structuring business presence in Georgia.
It is of paramount importance to respond to strategic and daily needs of Georgian business with professional legal support. CIS LONDON’s team offers both the precise knowledge of Georgian laws and awareness of local business practices.
We are trusted to take care of the legal safety of our client’s paperwork – from employment records to complex transaction documents. We draft, negotiate and, where applicable, register them with relevant authorities.
At CIS LONDON we also provide ad hoc legal opinions on tax, regulatory, licensing and other matters.
Protecting our clients’ business identity and other intellectual property, we register trademarks and patents, advise on data protection, IP assignment and licensing documents.
