Building a successful US business from investment to exit

Doing business in the USA comes with great potential, but also lots of legal implications. Join us to learn about how foreign companies can conduct business in the world’s biggest economy and hear from business who have done it successfully.

MBM Commercial has an unrivalled team of US qualified lawyers on the ground in Scotland. They regularly advise business about setting up US operations, getting investment, buying a US-based business or selling to a US buyer.

We’ll be joined by founders, investors and experts who have real world experience of the US market and know both the benefits and complications that come with doing business there. If you have ambitions in the USA this event is for you.

  • US M&A: When you sell your business, you will want to tap into the largest number of potential buyers with the potential to offer the best pricing and terms. Selling to a US buyer typically comes with more negotiation, risk and documentation, but done well it can also come with more reward. We’ll be discussing with a founder who successfully sold his business to a US corporate and hear his view of the ups and downs along the way.
  • Getting There: The latest US immigration and visa protocols US Immigration: The landscape for US visas and immigration has changed substantially over the past two years. Our US immigration consultant will assess common scenarios posed by a model business growing its US market share in 2022.
  • Flip Without the Flop: If you are looking for US investment, doing a Delaware flip and changing your corporate structure might be in order. We’ll discuss how to do it successfully and avoid any pitfalls.
  • Matters of State: With 50 states, legislation and tax implications can impact your decision of where to locate the business
  • US IP and Data Privacy: Protecting IP is a critical part of any expansion plan. We will talk about the basics of protecting your IP in the US. Plus, data is the newest exploitable asset, and businesses need to know how to exploit it legally. We will examine the patchwork of data privacy laws in the US through the lens of GDPR.

This event is being run as a hybrid event and guests are invited to join us in person or online, whichever suits.
