Service Details

Legal review and assessment of the scope of the company's activities and establishment of a list of licenses and/or permits required at the federal and local levels to conduct business. If required, we can also maintain current accounting and keep the client informed on the maturity date for extension of existing/obtaining of new permits upon the expiry of the previous ones. 

The service is oriented on the companies that mainly operate in the area of trade and industry, telecommunication, construction and infrastructure, as well as in the area of natural resources.

 

Service Relevance

Violation of the legal requirements on obtaining a license for a particular activity can cause a number of negative implications for legal entities, both from regulatory authorities, and in commercial terms. Prompt monitoring and obtaining/extension/renewal of licenses for a particular activity will help to avoid such implications and, therefore, company's losses.

Qualified assistance of lawyers, who are familiar with the licensing procedures and legal precedents in this area, allows structuring the process of obtaining and monitoring the presence of all necessary licenses and permits.

 

Procedure, Fees and Deadlines

The term of the service depends on the area and nature of client's activities and starts from 1-2 weeks.

The service fee depends on the task volume and nature of client's activities and is based on the hourly rates of GRATA lawyers.
