The LCT legal aid company has an abundant experience of work in the field of mergers and acquisitions. We have successfully carried out a number of corporate projects and legal disputes. Weknowhowtoresistcorporateraiding.It is very likely that you have had luck, and your company has not yet become a subject to an unfriendly acquisition, i.e. corporate seizure.
Or maybe, on the contrary, at the present moment you have to spend most of your time in courts, conducting corporate disputes, repel attempts of intrusion through your entrance checkpoint of officers of justice and the so called law enforcers.
In any event, we just have to deplorably inform you that your company may be on the list of companies which can be subjected to corporate raiding. Believe us, we have seen that list with our own eyes and can prove it for you. You may probably be there, and the list is easily purchasable. So the corporate raid may turn into reality for you.
In any case:
1. Preventive measures against corporate raiding
If the aggression has not yet started, and your company’s form is CJSC, OJSC, producers' co-operative, and particularly if it was created at the time of privatization, the probability to get involved into corporate disputes increases, and we know how and are able to carry out a number of simple and fairly inexpensive methods of corporate raid prevention.
Those methods include:
- Restructuring assets;
- Encumbering assets;
- Consolidation of stock holding;
- Additional issues of stock;
- Working with the stockholders register system;
- Legal auditing of the stock holding history of the company;
- Elimination of legal errors when concluding agreements;
- Development of correct foundation documents (‘poisonous pills’, ‘golden parachute’);
- Building an efficient information delivery system dealing with registration bodies on matters of company’s assets, company’s stock, the United State Registers for Legal Entities.
2. Corporate protection from the corporate raid which has already started, conducting corporate disputes
- You have started to receive envelops with blank sheets of paper;
- You or your employees are getting offers of selling the owned stock;
- Public bodies or stockholders demand that you submit documents on privatization, large-scale transactions;
- You have received an order on holding an extraordinary general meeting of stockholders;
- You have not been receiving extracts form the United State Register of Enterprises, United State Register for Legal Entities;
