If your company isn’t multinational, but is looking to expand into a new foreign market, you should consider Plante Moran to be your expert advisors. I could tell the team had consulted on expansions into Mexico many times. Everyone was very professional and they made a complicated, seemingly impossible task, into a strategic and organized plan with a set path, smooth process, and seamless implementation. The team helped us make the decision to incorporate on our own, rather than do a joint venture, and provided an unbelievable network of organizations to help - from recruiting, to tax, accounting, real estate, and HR. The team was with us every step of the way, with quick, efficient answers to our questions. We’ve incorporated successfully and feel comfortable standing on our own thanks to the Plante Moran team and local assets they connected us to!
