Undertaking foreign investments is fraught with both opportunity and
risk from a broad array of angles, in particular due to the investment
involving multiple jurisdictions and therefore being subject to
differing legal and regulatory systems. This can present significant
challenges, which invariably demands appropriate scrutiny of both the
financial and legal components of the proposed investment.
The legal components of such foreign investments demand careful
scrutiny, as they can pose substantial danger to the realization of
financial gains from the particular investment and expose the investment
to substantial loses, that may not be limited to the initial funds put
forth, but can go well beyond the initial money and demand further
contributions to cover the investment's ongoing losses and/or mistakes.
As such legal scrutiny is absolutely essential, with foreign investments
receiving the proper review and analysis of a lawyer capable of
breaking-down the agreement and identifying the obligations and
responsibilities, together with identifying potential problems and
dangers (though such an assessment is invariably limited in its scope,
and must be recognized as such).
