In the end all that matters are results.

  • THE BRIEF

    A medium-sized Dutch client requested an annual services package for 15 of its international legal entities – that were domiciled in 5 different countries.

    THINK SOLUTION

    It was clear from the start that this client was in desperate need of a coordinated and simple approach. A dedicated relationship manager was appointed who oversaw the transition of the 15 legal entities and made a detailed plan of action.

    As this particular client preferred us to use their in-house developed legal entity management system instead of THINK Online, we first double-checked the accuracy of the compliance input.

    The minute books and statutory registers of each legal entity were also double-checked in order to commence services with a clean slate.

    As the AGMs in 2 countries were fast approaching, we asked the client to send us the relevant documents. Using these documents, the THINK relationship manager prepared the draft AGM documents, employing standardized templates where possible, and afterwards, coordinated the execution of the documents for the countries involved. Finally, the relationship manager arranged for the filing of annual financial statements with the local company registries and the upload of the final documents in their system.

    To avoid any surprises, a flat fee quote per legal entity was issued to the client before starting any work. Furthermore, and in line with our simple approach, we also coordinated the billing for a business partner.

    As the client had worked with different local law firms previously, they were able to cut costs significantly.

  • THE BRIEF

    A London-based client requested annual services for a portfolio of international legal entities. This particular client also needed additional board resolutions for all entities.

    THINK SOLUTION

    Like the increasing number of start ups is doing, this client decided to outsource these services - in order to free up time and focus on value-adding business services.

    The transition of the portfolio of legal entities was centrally coordinated by the dedicated relationship manager who made a detailed plan of action, including a timeline displaying the additional board resolutions. While working on the resolutions, the THINK relationship manager sent reports to the client, notifying the client of the exact status of the board resolutions and other potentially outstanding matters.

    For the annual services, the relevant corporate information per legal entity and relevant deadlines were entered in THINK Online, our secure web solution.

    The drafted documents were then sent to the client, for execution and where necessary, documents were filed with the local company registries. After the filings, the final documents were uploaded in THINK Online, which the client can access from anywhere in the world. The entire procedure, covering all international legal entities, took less than two weeks.

    A flat fee quote was issued before starting any work. One annual flat fee per legal entity was quoted for the annual services and one flat fee was quoted for the additional services. In addition to the benefits of more competitive fees and a flexible fee structure, this client could now turn its attention to its core services.

  • THE BRIEF

    An existing client was working on an important acquisition involving multiple new legal entities. For the new legal entities, they required two of our ad hoc services: legal entity health checks and name changes.

    THINK SOLUTION

    The THINK relationship manager made a detailed plan of action, including a timeline displaying the services. While working on the legal entity health checks and name changes, the THINK relationship manager sent reports so the client never lost the overview. While working on an acquisition, it is often worthwhile to assess legal entities in a legal entity health check to see if they abide by local statutory and legal requirements.

    For the checks, we outlined relevant compliance information from local public records in a simple and straightforward document and compared this against the client's files, which in some situations, can draw attention to compliance issues. While working on the checks we made sure that the documents for the name changes and the subsequent filings with the local company registries were addressed. As a final step, we took care of the upload of all documents in THINK Online, our secure web solution.

    Before starting any work, a flat fee quote for both the legal entity health checks and the name changes was issued.

    Due to the volume of work involving both legal entity health checks and name changes, we were able to offer this client a considerable discount.
