Legal support of transactions

When drafting and negotiating a contract for your company our team in PRESIDENT CONSULT makes sure the latest legislation is in place. The legal “purity” check for the acquired transaction target is enforced when required, with our lawyers ensuring all the procedures are in compliance with the current applicable legislation. Our staff will consider possible negative effects of the transaction, as well as possible default by a counterparty, and elaborate the system of security measures. In order to establish a comfortable contractual relationship between the parties our lawyers will carry out an analysis of the future taxation.

Improper or insufficient professional attention to any side of the transaction mentioned when drawing, negotiating and closing the deal, might cause the termination of the transaction, loss at both parties and application of the state penalties. .

We provide you legal support at any stage of the transaction, representing the client’s interests in negotiations and elaborating the documents. Participation in the level of pre-contractual negotiations will assure the following advantages:

  • Professional legal assessment of the transaction clauses and this in turn would significantly decrease possible mistakes when closing the deal;
