Joint business with partners

 

When starting a joint business, partners rarely anticipate conflicts between them in the future, and this is one of the biggest mistakes. Download our checklist and make sure that you have the situation under control https://ilf.space/sevensigns

 

As of February 2018 it’s possible to sign corporate agreements in Ukraine. What can and cannot business partners legally agree on concerning their company? See the answer at this link https://ilf.space/%D1%81orporate.%D1%81ontract

 

Want to start a business with partners and reduce the risk of conflicts within the company? Choose the most efficient way and get answers to multiple questions at once by ordering our Advice Hour https://ilf.space/start.business

 

Do you feel that you’re losing control of the business you started with partners? Or perhaps you have already lost it, either partially or completely? Or maybe you’re planning to withdraw from the business and just want to get a fair price for your stake? We know how to address such situations and help you remain in control of your company! See the link for details https://ilf.space/business.hour

 

As of June 2019 the charter of your LLC was rendered null and void by the new law. Under the old law, a 50% stake had no say in management. We have prepared a new model charter for you, in accordance with the new law – see the link https://ua.tov.ilf.space/

 

Export-import deals. Investment

Are you already an exporter or only planning on entering foreign markets? We can help you build your business abroad taking into account the tax load, check foreign deals contracts for risks and handle the first shipment.

Are you planning to expand your business and seek out investment? We can conduct an audit and pre-investment procedures for your company. If necessary, we will help reorganize your business and protect your interests when signing contracts between investors and business owners.

Deals with land and real estate

Your land lease contracts are close to expiration? We can re-register documents, negotiate with shareholders and help protect your land from unlawful actions by competitors during the re-registration stage.

Are you buying logistics and manufacturing facilities? We can check the seller’s integrity and the facility’s vulnerabilities, analyze tax implications, secure necessary permits and register the contract.

We handle cases on protecting ownership rights to land in court:

  • on violation of the renter's property rights to land and boundaries of land plots;
  • on invalidating land lease contracts and decisions of local self-government/state authorities on granting management/property rights and reclamation of land.

Protection from raiders

Wanton property takeover and harvest arrest are among the most widespread raiding schemes. If you’re facing this, we can help you. Our experts will develop an anti-takeover strategy and help you preserve your assets (harvest and land). We can also submit anti-raiding petitions to the Cabinet of Ministers and Business Ombudsman Council and handle communications with law enforcement. We will protect your interests in court and hold a PR campaign for publicity.

 

400 corporate raiding attacks are carried out every year, most of them done by business partners and executives acting behind your back. Is it possible to safeguard your business from corporate takeover? Yes, it is, and we have a special service just for this – Anti-Raider Supervision - https://ilf.space/anti-raider.supervision

Interaction with law enforcement and regulatory agencies

Have you received an inquiry from regulatory authorities or a notice of the coming inspection? We will inspect such inquiries and prepare replies to them. We will help you prepare your staff and company for the inspections by conducting audits, briefings and training seminars. We will come to you in person to be present during inspections and lodge complaints against the actions of law enforcement and regulatory agencies.

Protection of business reputation

Negative information about you or your company can cause irreparable damage to you and your business. What can you do to protect yourself as quickly and efficiently as possible if this happens to you? We have developed a step-by-step guide for those who find themselves in this situation https://ilf.space/defamation

How to get dividends and what to do if you haven’t received them for a while

When investing in a business, we expect it to yield profits in the form of dividends. However, sometimes it seems that a company is commercially successful and is turning a profit, yet you can’t feel that success and receive no dividends as a participant in a limited liability company (using LLC as the most popular and flexible form of business in Ukraine as an example).
