Start-up Company Support
Start-up companies need a strong foundation and constant monitoring and support.
This is an exciting era in ASEAN for start-up companies. One Asia Lawyers supports
the creation and expansion of start-up companies into ASEAN.
Even more so than for established corporations, it is crucial for new companies to have competent legal
representation to expand into the ASEAN region. Usually, however, start-up companies do not have the
resources to obtain the necessary legal advice. These companies often put off agreements among
shareholders, partners, employees, and trade partners. It is common for Japanese businesses to use home
country company rules and employment contracts, despite the fact that company and labor laws vary
dramatically from Japan. Disputes frequently occur concerning the rights of management, profit distribution
among shareholders and partners, labor management, and ownership of ideas. To avoid these pitfalls, such issues require knowledgeable counsel to avoid the conflicts that often arise when a correct early legal
environment is ignored.
One Asia Lawyers teams have experienced Japanese and local corporate and commercial lawyers
specializing in start-ups and venture companies. Understanding the risks that exist in the day-to-day
management of a new company is often overlooked. We support our start-up clients through the legal
development of their business in the ASEAN region by providing flexible services.
From establishing a company, applying for visas, registering products, and creating shareholder agreements,
to setting up special arrangements such as special equity security, stock options and company rules, One Asia Lawyers provides comprehensive services at a reasonable price. We also create consulting agreements for
our clients that cover the entire ASEAN region.
