Forming a U.S. Business

There is a lot to consider when you want to start business in the USA, regardless of whether you sell from Denmark/Europe or want to establish a business in the USA.

The United States is not one country when it comes to corporate law and contract law but rather 50 states and territories, each with their own laws and processes. The processes can appear complex. They can be – but it need not be either expensive or time-consuming to get a relevant legal set-up done in the USA.

Our Danish-American lawyers have more than 20 years of experience and expertise in assisting Danish and other European companies and entrepreneurs in establishing companies including the legal set-up and various compliance filings.

We can assist you with the entire process:

  • Initial advice on whether and when it is relevant for you to establish a company in the USA
  • Selection of the state for establishing a company – should it be Delaware, how many choose to establish, or is it more relevant for you to establish the company in another state, for example where you will have an office/shop/warehouse?
  • Preparation of all relevant and necessary company documents, and implementation of the incorporation process, so that the company is set up correctly and in a way that is relevant to your situation.
  • Determination of whether the newly founded company must be registered in additional states
