As a complement to our core legal services, Livingstons Legal’s consulting services bring the benefit of our years of business experience, our external objectivity and our analytical abilities to our clients in order to solve complex business and operational issues.
A rapidly changing environment often presents challenges to businesses that go far beyond complying with applicable government laws and regulations. An international company might consult a law firm on what business practices are permitted under Myanmar law and a Myanmar company might have similar questions about international law. But knowing that certain business practices are permitted does not answer the question of whether they are desirable.
Our management and strategy consulting practice helps organisations – in both the public and private sector – to improve their performance and to grow by solving problems and finding new and better ways of operating. This could involve, for example: identifying improvements to productivity; identifying ways to reduce costs and make savings; planning the launch or expansion of a product or line of business; or determining how to restructure a business for better operations and growth.
With our focus on enabling international clients to excel in their Myanmar operations, Livingstons Legal specializes in offering broad consulting services that go far beyond the purely legal advice offered by other firms. Team members with experience in international management and strategy consulting projects are available to examine existing operations or future plans in detail and compile recommendations that are aimed to maximize business efficiency and profitability given the specific legal and cultural environment of Myanmar. Similarly, we are able to assist Myanmar entities and entrepreneurs in introducing international best practices into their businesses, developing beneficial international operations, preparing for and establishing joint-ventures and preparing for and obtaining external finance for their operations.
Business leaders are sometimes reluctant to talk to lawyers about business challenges since lawyers are often seen as holding back decisions by seeing potential problems where managers see opportunities. At Livingstons Legal, we pride ourselves on providing sound advice that is cognizant of economic realities and strategic advice that blends potential downsides and upsides to suit the individual risk profile of a particular business. Our management and strategy consulting services are therefore a natural extension of, and complement to, our commercial, practical and results-oriented focus.
