In the end all that matters are results.

  • THE BRIEF

    A medium-sized Dutch client requested an annual services package for fifteen of its international legal entities, who were domiciled in five different countries.

    THINK SOLUTION

    It was clear from the start that the client was in desperate need of an approach that was coordinated and simple to hand. In order to create a detailed plan of action, a dedicated relationship manager was appointed to oversee the transition of these fifteen legal entities.

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

    We felt it was also necessary to double-check the minute books and the statutory registers of each legal entity in order to provide services and quickly and efficiently as possible.

    On the impending arrival of AGMs in two countries, we requested the relevant documents from the client in order to draft and develop a plan of action. The THINK relationship manager prepared draft AGM documents, using the standardized templates where necessary and executed the correct documents for the countries involved. The annual financial statements were then arranged and filed with the local company registries, and the final documents were uploaded to our system.

    To mitigate any surprising circumstances, the client was issued a quote of a flat fee per legal entity before any work commenced. In line with the approach that was taken, the billing for a business partner was also coordinated.

    The client has had working relationships with several law firms on prior occasions and was able to cut costs significantly through these relationships.

  • THE BRIEF

    A London-based client requested annual services for a portfolio containing international legal entities. The client in question also required additional board resolutions for all entities.

    THINK SOLUTION

    Like more and more startups, this client made the decision to outsource these services in order to focus on the services that added value to his business and to free up time in his schedule.

    The transition of the portfolio of legal entities was centrally coordinated by a dedicated relationship manager, who created a detailed plan of action. This plan included a timeline, which displayed the additional board resolutions. While these resolutions were being processed, the THINK relationship manager sent reports to the client, with notification of the exact status of these resolutions, as well as 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 sent to the client for execution and were filed with the proper local company registries where necessary. These documents were then uploaded to THINK Online, providing access to the client to these documents from anywhere in the world. The entire process, from the commencement to conclusion, took less than two weeks.

    The client was informed of a flat fee quote before any work was commenced. There was one flat fee per legal entity for annual services and another flat fee quote for any additional services.

  • THE BRIEF

    An existing client was working on an important acquisition involving multiple new legal entities, which required two ad hoc services, namely 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 to be rendered. While providing the ad hoc services, the THINK relationship manager sent reports to the client. While working on an acquisition, it is often worthwhile for multinational companies to thoroughly assess the new legal entities in a legal entity health check - to see if they abide by local statutory and legal requirements.

    The relevant compliance information was provided from public records in a simple and straightforward document. It was compared with the client's files in order to ensure that there were no compliance issues. The required documents for name changes and subsequent filings with the local company registries were addressed. When completed, the relevant documents were uploaded to THINK Online.

    Before work commenced, a flat fee quote was provided for the ad hoc services, namely the legal entity health checks and the name changes.

    Due to the volume of work that was involved in the provision of these services, the client received a considerable discount.
