Foreign Direct Investment

Our Business & Securities Group lawyers regularly determine the type of business entities that best suit our clients' needs.  We consider administrative flexibility, tax attributes and tax-advantaged employee and fringe benefits, maintenance costs, liability protection and, perhaps most importantly, your business' future growth.   Because our lawyers are familiar with the benefits and drawbacks of incorporating or organizing in Minnesota and other states such as Delaware, they can help you decide which jurisdiction will be best for your current operations and your future goals.

After helping you form your new business, we give you practical advice and legal services designed to make your business run smoothly and efficiently.  The lawyers in our group have extensive experience with a wide variety of business transactions and arrangements.  For example, our lawyers routinely prepare and work on:

  • complex partnership and member control agreements for partnership and limited liability companies, including joint ventures
  • sophisticated shareholder buy-sell agreements, voting agreements and other shareholder control agreements
  • confidentiality, noncompetition and non-solicitation agreements
  • intellectual-property licensing agreements
  • manufacturing, distribution and supply agreements
  • other commercial contracts

We put our experience to work for you and make it easy for your business to flourish by avoiding potential pitfalls with important transactions, and by remaining sensitive to important relationships.  At Maslon, we understand that relationships are crucial to the success of most enterprises.

Client Testimonial

One of the best China lawyers based in Shenzhen! I appreciated this Shenzhen lawyer's service because they helped me achieved my goals, though it was a tough mission. They are English speaking lawyers, so there are absolutely no communication barrier you likely encounter elsewhere. What impressed me is these Shenzhen lawyer's quick response and professional service, two characteristics which I treasure most. Although the Shenzhen lawyers are based in south China, they represent clients across the country, so you can also call them China lawyer! - Johnson
