BUSINESS STRATEGY

BUSINESS STRATEGY 

Start-up: Business Plans, legal, tax and funding

Our Firm strongly believes in the driving force of “good ideas”. For this reason, it has a dedicated ad hoc department for supporting businesses in the start-up phase  adding to the traditional legal advice provided in terms of corporate and contracts law also  the support concerning the Business Plan and Tax assistance for an appropriate  planning according to tax benefit rules that, from time to time, are available.

We are experts and serve our clients also in Microfinance projects. More recently, and aware of the difficulties in access to finance, especially for new and young business organizations, we have enhanced our advice service by examining alternative financing instruments currently available on the market, which, in practical terms, may be used to overcome access difficulties and replace investments from venture capital funds.

MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS

All transactions – whether mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, or equity investments – involve complex issues that require the dedicated attention of experienced professionals, and even more so when these transactions involve companies with global operations.  OAdvisory  can assist in dealing with the multitude of tax, accounting, regulatory and cultural issues relating to such transactions.  Our service includes deal structuring and due diligence, post transaction services and restructuring services.

WEALTH PLANNING 

Our investment advice and wealth planning solutions are tailored to our clients’ needs, and it is our aim to find the most appropriate solution to each client’s objectives.
Our approach is based on the following three steps:

1) Financial assessment and client needs
2) Investments analysis and wealth planning
3) Support to implement the solution
———————————————-
1) financial assessment is the first step to having a clear and detailed picture of the client’s wealth concerning investments, real estate, insurance, and expenses. Identifying clients’ needs, objectives and risk profile  is key to analyzing on-going wealth management and to defining appropriate wealth planning

2) Qualitative and quantitative analysis of investments, real estate, insurance, and expenses allows to identify  the overall asset allocation and highlight correlation of all the components and their costs. Wealth planning solutions are based on:

– verifying correspondence of actual investments with risk profiles and client needs

– achieving the client’s objectives

– optimizing/reducing costs and fees

3) Support the client in choosing wealth management solutions and in investing in high quality investment products by scouting appropriate intermediaries and/or re-negotiating conditions and costs applied by the client’s banks and insurance brokers.

LEGAL ADVISORY

LITIGATION & CONTROVERSY 

Our team is able to advise clients both in the pre-litigation and litigation stages and represents them at all levels of enquiries.  Our litigators can provide representation throughout the judicial process, both before national courts as well as the European court systems.

INTERNATIONAL CONTRACTS 

We deal with legal aspects concerning the typical and atypical circumstances and conditions of contract law on both a national and international level  taking into consideration that companies are regularly faced with choosing governing law for cross-border construction contracts due to the increasing globalization of business.

COMPLIANCE 

We provide legal assistance both in the risk assessment stage, aimed at analyzing and possibly revising the internal control system and related protocols (i.e., company procedures, proxies, corporate governance, powers and responsibilities), and in the subsequent stage of drafting and approving the documents relating to the Model, including the related Summary, the Code of Ethics and the Disciplinary System.

We assist Clients in the implementation of the Model, providing our support as to the Information and Training activities relating to the Model.

With reference to the Information, we support Clients in creating a specific section within the company website and intranet devoted to the Model, in which all the documents connected with the Model (e.g. Ethic Code, Disciplinary System, relevant Procedures etc.) are published.

We train the company personnel both online and in class with the participation of one of our expert as teacher. In both cases we provide training materials and test questionnaires in Italian or English for non-Italian personnel.

We support the company Supervisory Body (the so-called ‘Organismo di Vigilanza’ or ‘OdV’) appointed pursuant to the Decree 231, in order to assure the effective and efficient performance of the tasks assigned to it by the Model. In this regard, we assist the OdV in drafting the Monitoring Plan and the Communication and Training Plan, in performing its audit activities, in evaluating the reports received and in drafting the minutes of its meetings.

Our experience on corporate compliance matters also includes representation of Clients in proceedings before the Italian criminal courts for the administrative liability of legal entities pursuant to Decree 231.
