Doing business in the United States

Business opportunities

Many Dutch are already doing business successfully in the United States. No wonder, since it is the largest economy in the world. There are still many opportunities for entrepreneurs. Especially in the field of infrastructure by President Biden’s signing of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act deal. The US government will spend billions on infrastructure in the coming years.

Avoiding risks

A point of attention is mainly the legislation and regulation of products in the US. The US has no general product liability laws and they vary from state to state.

A product liability claim can be made by any US resident against the defendant anywhere. To significantly reduce the likelihood of a liability claim, you should market the best and safest product possible with appropriate warnings and instructions.

ACG International can assist you in doing business in the US, working closely with its two partner offices in New York (NY) and Washington (DC) . In this way you can be sure that you will be well assisted both in the preparation and locally in the US.

Tenancy law has never been as high on many entrepreneurs' agendas as during the Covid pandemic and the government-mandated closures of the hospitality, retail and cultural sectors. The rents stipulated in the leases proved unattainable and the lucky few tenants were offered temporary rent reductions by their landlords.
International Private Law (IPL) is an area of law that plays an important role in cross-border (international) matters. This area of law determines, among other things, which international court is competent, which law is applicable, but also whether a foreign judgment is eligible for recognition and enforcement in the Netherlands and, of course, vice versa.
Business law regulates the delicate balance between the entrepreneur's freedom to conduct his business as he sees fit and the legal regulation of his activities - their rights and obligations.
