I and a partner wish to set up a company. One of us lives in the UK and the other in the USA. We both want to make sure we are one legal entity so we can sell shares, or if the start-up was bought out, we'd both be entitled to the proceeds. We'd hate for a situation to arise where one of us has no legal standing if the company was bought out.
How do I go about setting up an international startup between the UK & USA where all directors have the same rights & legal status?
