Advising investors and new business opportunities

The International Desk advises both small and medium-sized companies and start-ups as well as large transactions in various sectors of the economy. Both the firm and the International Desk have the natural vocation of assisting investors in raising public or private funds.

Financial vehicles and channels for access to the markets of the main European and Latin American capitals.

In order to provide the best service to family offices, the International Desk has financial advisors, real estate advisors, financial institutions and M&A companies among its collaborators. EJASO also has departments specialising in high-growth segments such as technology, telecommunications and energy.

Incorporation of companies, subsidiaries and representative offices

The first step for any foreign investment is the correct choice of the type of company, as well as the tax and labour regime, with knowledge of the legal framework of both the investing country and the recipient of the investment being indispensable for this purpose. Through its collaborators in all Latin American and European countries, the International Desk provides a personalised service, thus adapting to the client’s needs and budget. From the incorporation of the company or investment vehicle to how, where and how much to invest, EJASO’s International Desk is at the client’s side when making the main decisions.

Acquisitions, mergers, liquidation and sale of companies

An alternative strategy for entering national markets, as an alternative to setting up a company or financial vehicle, is to acquire or merge with local or multinational companies. Here, too, the International Desk is supported by M&A firms, auditors, accountants and financial advisors. The services also extend to the field of insolvency law. In this context, the International Desk has professionals in its Madrid office with many years of experience in this field, which enables it to provide first-class advice in the search for assets abroad.

And all our experience in commercial, tax, labour and other areas of business law.

As part of EJASO the International Desk offers advice in all areas of law. We are supported by all EJASO lawyers in addition to the cooperation with ETL Global. This means that the International Desk is supported by more than 500 professionals in Europe. EJASO has industry areas (business sectors) and traditional legal specialisations within the modern perspective of large law firms. In the area of corporate legal advice, the International Desk is staffed by full-time professionals. In terms of executives or expatriates, the International Desk has a specific area that allows us to advise individuals on immigration and visa matters, connected with relevant issues such as taxation and residency procedures, among others. Finally, within the International Desk we have an area specialising in visas for work, study and residence in the United States.
