Parslows Jersey Lawyers for Business Law and Cross Boarder Transactions

What do you mean by cross border transactions?

A cross border transaction is essentially any transfer of property, goods or services between individuals or business entities who reside in different jurisdictions. The transaction itself may be straightforward such as sourcing razor blades from China for sale in Jersey or as complex as joint venture trading structures in various jurisdictions.

Why is a legal opinion used in cross border transactions?

A legal opinion is issued by a law firm expressing legal conclusions and/or analysis of a specific transaction. The recipient of the opinion will then rely on its contents as a basis for entering into a specific transaction.

Legal opinions are commonly requested where a cross-border transaction has a Jersey element to it. These can be on a wide range of issues ranging from standard corporate capacity opinions to opinions on specific areas of corporate law and practice.

What is the purpose of a legal opinion?

A legal opinion:

  • informs the recipient of the legal effect of entering into the proposed transaction
  • identifies legal risks and issues that the recipient should address as part of the transaction
  • confirms a party’s ability to enter into and perform its obligations under the transaction

Our business team regularly provides legal opinions on matters of Jersey law to banks and other corporate lenders, financial institutions and transaction parties.

Over the years, we have developed relationships with several trusted and like-minded overseas legal counsel and tax advisors with whom we regularly engage with on our international transactions.

“Work was impeccable …”

Where do I start? I used Parslows for all of the legalities for my new business. I often had meetings, phone calls and emails with Catia Barros & Carl Parslow. The advice, patience, and kindness I received from them and everyone at Parslows was fantastic. The work they did for me was impeccable, and they talked me through everything in stages. When I was unsure, they simplified it and made me feel like I had complete control of what was happening to better my business and its legal aspects.

I thank you all sincerely for the compassion and empathy you had for me while receiving your services. I will be sure to be back again should I request your expertise.
I highly recommend Parslows to anyone. Thank you again, Michael Kirkwood and the staff from Lifeline Training Ltd.
