Experienced Law Office
If you are just starting your business or you’ve already done the basic legal work in one country and are hesitant about investing in completing the legal filings in the second country, you may feel that it’s more cost-effective to wait to consult a lawyer who specializes in US-Israel business law. Perhaps you are considering taking things slow while you build up or believe that you can do many of the basic legal work yourself.
Legal analysts caution against such a plan. Taking care of your own legal needs at the outset can result in substantially increased costs down the road as mistakes need to be undone, absent paperwork needs to be accounted for and a lawyer needs to be found who will pick up the pieces so that you can start again. Grabbing some paperwork off the Internet may seem cost-effective at the beginning but in the end, it’s penny-wise and pound-foolish. In case of a legal challenge, you have no one standing behind you to represent you to either government or to a court of law in either country.
In addition, standard forms and documents don’t take into account the differences in legal systems or laws of the two countries. There are no provisions in such standard documents for the US-Israel tax treaty that grants tax relief to individuals and businesses that are obligated to file taxes for both countries nor are there any stipulations for the ways that the court systems in each country view various licenses and registrations, filings for intellectual property or questions regarding partnerships, mergers and contracts.
If you want to conduct your business in a way that will allow it to grow and flourish in a way that you anticipate, start off on the right food with a seasoned US-Israel business lawyer in Jerusalem.
