Business & Investment Planning

The Abbas Law Firm

Business Law, Consulting, and Planning:

Forming and registering a company, along with other precautions, will help insulate your personal assets in a worst-case-scenario. As the old adage goes, “hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.” If you have dreams of starting your own business and being your own boss, The Abbas Law Firm can help you start your own business with the personal service and attention you need.

You need an attorney who understands what it is like to run a small business, what it is like to turn your dream into a reality, and then into a vision for your future. The Abbas Law Firm PLLC does more than give you the documents you need, we help you realize your dreams and ambitions.


There are a lot of things which fall under this category, but The Abbas Law Firm PLLC approaches life with a “can do” attitude! Nothing is too much for our clients, whether you need help obtaining investment information from a foreign government (with an U.S. Embassy) or someone to travel to a foreign country to consult with their local lawyers or political officials. We even specialize in aiding with business proposals to foreign governments and foreign companies.  

Contract Interpretation:

If you have a contract that you need reviewed or interpreted, we can help you with that. Most people do not have the time or patience to read through the legalese in a contract, let alone the ability to understand it. Never sign a contract that you do not understand, you could be subjecting yourself to unnecessary risks and conditions. If you need someone to sift through a contract and explain to you what it contains and what the provisions mean, please schedule a consultation today.

International Investment Consulting

If you are thinking of starting or expanding a business into a foreign market, you will have to take many factors into consideration, and might have to take actions to protect your investment. We would be happy to schedule a consultation to teach you about the intricacies of cross-border trade and how it will affect your business.

We are happy to advise you on the effects of Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs), Multilateral Investment Treaties (MITs), Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), Investment Agreements, local law, registering your company in foreign jurisdictions, U.S. Federal Law, Foreign Law, and more. (Disclaimer: we do not practice foreign law nor provide advice on foreign law; we merely provide guidance to how foreign law should be considered when making business decisions. Though, if you desire, we are able to consult with counsel in foreign jurisdictions to provide definite legal guidance from those jurisdictions.) 

International (Non-U.S.) Business Licensing:

Getting a foreign business license can be a difficult and arduous process, which can sometimes take months if not done properly. To win some U.S. Government contracts, your company must be licensed in the local country. If you do not have the correct documentation, certification, letters, or etc., then you could waste valuable time and energy. In some cases, if the error has been significant, you may have to start the whole process over again.

Let our international contacts and experience work for you, by utilizing our consulting services we can help you through any business licensing process. We maintain contacts in many countries throughout the world, including Latin America, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Asia, South Asia, and the Far East. We have experience with helping businesses get licensed by the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq and Afghanistan. We would be more than happy to help you through the business licensing process in other countries as well. We can assist you with gathering the correct documentation, help you with local contacts (for translation, facilitation, and security), and help you with acquiring the license locally. Contact us today to get your business licensing needs met.

U.S. Business Licensing:

If you need a U.S. business license or registration, we can help you with that as well. We have extensive experience in registering businesses in the U.S.
