Due to our international presence, we are able to offer a variety of management consulting services that help entrepreneurs deal with challenges related to overseas expansion. Major focal points include:

Indian & Chinese Market Entry Strategy: India & China have become one of the largest markets in the world. An increasingly affluent middle class is evolving, which is longing for quality products and services from the West. Moreover, tens of thousands of Indian SMEs have production cost advantages that are hard to find in developed nations. In order to capitalize on these advantages, one not only needs significant skills and experience in selecting distributors and suppliers, but also in the way contracts with Indian & Chinese partners should be written. A comprehensive on-site due diligence exercise is indispensable.

Setting up your own local presence is the logical continuation of your Indian & China endeavours. There are, however, decisions to be made concerning the legal entity to do so, and bureaucratic hurdles to overcome before you have succeeded in setting up shop there. We have many years of experience doing it – and we will gladly help you, too.

Trademark Protection: Before you go about exporting your products or services, you should make sure your trademarks are protected in your target market(s). In India & China, for example, the entity first using your trademark is considered its owner (this does not apply to world famous brands, however the list of brands Indian & Chinese courts would consider world famous is rather short). Therefore, it is strongly advisable to register your trademark(s) before entering the Indian & Chinese market.

Solving HR Issues: Setting up subsidiaries overseas naturally involves the search for suitable executives and staff, and at a later stage possibly the resolution of labour issues in unfamiliar jurisdictions. We are here to help.

We have significant experience in listing Indian Chinese and other companies on the BSC & NSE. Following the listing, we are able to continue to assist you with post listing support.
We have network with specialist in listing companies on the BSE & NSE and, acting as lead manager, we take 100% responsibility to achieve the listing for clients.

Where it is appropriate for the Indian client to list on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, UK or Germany Stock Exchange or on Nasdaq or another American exchange, we can work with the client and our associated capital markets professionals in those countries to achieve the listing there.
