To highlight our recent professional accomplishments, it must be noted that due to political situation in Belarus, last year BDO Law jointly with BDO Latvia opened a Belarusian Desk dedicated to help Belarusian business expand into Latvian or EU market. The development and improvement of such a service line gave an opportunity to expand the range of existing client and start successful cooperation with Belarusian companies. Our practice team provided a full range of legal and financial services - from relocation and immigration to company establishment, internal document drafting and legal assistance, in cooperation with public authorities and during obtaining a start-up company status. The Belarusian Desk allowed BDO Law to provide legal assistance to IT companies.

BDO Law assists clients on the company foundation and bank account opening processes, as well as provide timely assistance to help our clients develop their business ideas in Latvia.

It should be noted that last year a topical issue in Latvia was the registration of ultimate beneficiaries for companies and branches. As this process is both time consuming and requires the collection of various information and documents about companies and their activities, careful work and attention is required to meet all the requirements of the commercial register. BDO Law assisted clients such as Polpharma, Cognizant etc. to compile the necessary documents, provide the required information and ensure successful continuation of their businesses.

BDO Law corporate and commercial practice team is unique due to its versatile experience and knowledge of each team member - data protection, anti-money laundering, tax, real estate, public procurement, etc.
