What we do

New Business Development and Problem Solving

We assist high net worth individuals, professional investors, owners and top managers of international and national companies in different sectors of economy in implementing the idea of creating new effective sources of income, while providing necessary support for sustainable development and prosperity of their businesses.

Launching a business “from scratch”

As a rule, clients apply to us on the stage of analysis of available capabilities to launch a business "from scratch" or to develop a new direction within the existing business (including structuring of the existing assets), as well as on the stage of setting up business. In such projects, we often encounter problems of our clients regarding future scopes of legal regulation such as tax, antitrust and labor law, intellectual property, licensing, government relations, issues related to finding out the most effective solutions considering form and structure of business as well as strategic objectives, such as drafting of business plan and development of internal business processes system in order to provide the owner with control over the work of top management and functional units.

Integrites works on the “legal supermarket” basis, therefore our clients can get a comprehensive explanation for the wide range of legal issues in a single package, as we use the synergy which is reached both by the cooperation of internal teams and optimization of administrative procedures. Moreover, strong analytical team provides us on a permanent basis with timely and accurate information on market situation in the CIS, which enables our clients to assess the prospects for the development of business not only by considering the legal point, but also the economic component.

Purchase or "acquisition" of the existing business

Reflections of our clients are often connected to either purchase or acquisition of the existing business. In these projects we assist in making reasonable negotiating position for our client, which considerably effects the price formation process and purchase and sale of business in general; defining approaches to organization of seller's business (the possibility and reasonability of "acquisition" of a new element depends a lot on it), and settling of the contractual relations, including allocation of financial, commercial and other risks.

Moreover, considering large joint ventures such issues as profit distribution, conditions of realization (in case of goods realization - bonuses, discounts for purchases), use of optimization tools offered by the seller are rather urgent. A key stage to solve the abovementioned problems is to conduct due diligence and facilities or project evaluation that results in acquisition of "card of recommendations" for further actions aimed at minimizing or elimination of legal, tax, financial and strategic risks.

Investing

The lawyers of Integrites corporate team are highly experienced in advising on derivatives and money-market instruments to secure owners, assets, investable funds (considering suitable schemes and investment facilities), and forms of income from investment facilities, possible tax consequences, as well as investor relations.

Business Financing

We assist our clients in identifying possible ways of finance and to appraise advantages and disadvantages in this sector, whether they are investing in capital (share placement on the stock exchange, raising venture capital, debt finance with entering the capital) or debt finance (bank finance, including the global financial institutions finance, intra-group loans), as well as to achieve the optimal ratio in charging instruments.

Within operational activities clients rely upon us in solving problems associated with failures in the system of corporate management (resolution of internal conflicts, investor relations, relations between owner and top management), hurdling regulatory barriers in the context of different regulatory approval procedures (holding negotiations with public authorities in the case of claims, assisting in passing inspections), as well as addressing strategic issues that provide the client with the opportunity to understand what caused the trouble and how to prevent it in future.
