Despite the simplicity of doing business in Georgia, companies with foreign participation regularly face the need for legal and accounting assistance, even if they have their own specialists on staff. We believe that the optimal format is corporate legal outsourcing. We tell you how it works in JUST Advisors.

How to choose a Lawyer for a Company in Georgia

Any business activity, especially in another country, faces the need for legal support. Almost all business processes are somehow connected with the solution of legal issues. For companies of any form of ownership, the number of Employees and the amount of turnover, the only difference is how often qualified assistance and legal advice are needed.

According to many aspiring entrepreneurs, doing business in Georgia is not so difficult. The country’s authorities have been trying to compete with the popular offshore jurisdictions for many years. It is not for nothing that the country has been ranked 7th in the Doing Business ranking for several years in a row: the relative ease of registering a company, attractive tax rates, and benefits for IT. However, the density of legal regulation, as in many countries, is growing from year to year, amendments are being introduced to tax and labor legislation, trade rules, and so on. The simple registration of a company does not mean that there is no legal regulation of doing business.

This means that you will definitely need legal assistance. Ideally, you need a Lawyer (and a specialist in a wide range of corporate, civil, administrative, labor and tax law issues) who knows local legislation and the practice of its application, the Georgian language for communicating with Contractors, partners and Government Agencies, as well as your native language for communicating with you and your team. And preferably on an ongoing basis, since questions requiring legal assessment can appear at any time, and answers to them, as a rule, were needed yesterday.

It remains to choose — inhouse or outsourcing? Lawyer or law firm?

What is the benefit of legal outsourcing?

When relocating a business to Georgia, it will be necessary to understand the nuances of tax and labor legislation, as well as to involve an intermediary for communications with Government Agencies and banks when registering a company.

Perhaps the biggest advantage of outsourcing legal processes is that it frees up your precious time so that you can focus on income-generating activities. If your Contractor is really well versed in what he is doing, you can count on fast deadlines and stable reliable results.

There are no technical problems to attract legal outsourcing. In the pandemic, everyone is used to working remotely, and the level of digitalization makes it easy to communicate, set tasks and control processes.
