Paul R Boldy and Har­vey Law Group are keen on help­ing Filipino busi­nesses ex­pand be­yond lo­cal shores

Philippine Tatler - - BUSINESS INTERVIEW -

Dr Paul R Boldy at HLG’s Philip­pine of­fice in the heart of Makati; (in­set) A pre­dom­i­nantly Filipino team gives proper in­sights on the clien­tele ou could say that we’re a cor­po­rate so­lu­tions provider, one that spe­cially deals with global busi­ness mo­bil­ity,” is the an­swer Dr Paul R Boldy gives when­ever asked about Har­vey Law Group (HLG.) “We work with high net-worth in­di­vid­u­als who want to con­sider a new di­rec­tion with re­gard to both their cor­po­rate and per­sonal lives.”

Boldy is no stranger to help­ing busi­nesses set up a branch be­yond their home shores and work­ing over­seas. He has held po­si­tions in a num­ber of com­pa­nies which were in the busi­ness of of­fer­ing as­sis­tance to cor­po­ra­tions set­ting up offi ces within Asia. In do­ing so, he en­abled these com­pa­nies to gain a foothold in the re­gion to help grow their busi­nesses fur­ther.

He joined HLG’s Hong Kong of­fice as Di­rec­tor of Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment in March 2017 and was sec­onded as Philip­pine Coun­try Man­ager in Oc­to­ber. HLG was founded in 1992 and is head­quar­tered in Hong Kong with 15 offi ces world­wide.

“We re­alised that the Philip­pines was a good mar­ket,” he ex­plains as to why the fi rm chose to set up in the coun­try. “There are many Filipinos liv­ing and work­ing over­seas.”

It is one thing to work abroad, but set­ting up a busi­ness or a for­eign branch is a dif­fer­ent story. Many busi­ness­men con­sider dual-cit­i­zen­ship to gain a sec­ond pass­port for smoothly con­duct­ing busi­ness over­seas.

“A sec­ond pass­port def­i­nitely helps when you’re set­ting up your com­pany,” Boldy says. “This ad­van­tage al­lows high net-worth in­di­vid­u­als to spread around and mit­i­gate risk as they move for­ward.”

Sec­ond cit­i­zen­ship helps in­di­vid­u­als struc­ture and se­cure their busi­nesses and per­sonal lives. It al­lows them to bring along their spouses and chil­dren to give them bet­ter lives via a safer en­vi­ron­ment, qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion, and em­ploy­ment.

Boldy is proud to say that HLG works with its clients at ev­ery step of the way and en­sures that all pro­cesses are fol­lowed to the let­ter. With 11 full-time staff on hand, Boldy’s team en­sures that one’s ap­pli­ca­tion is seam­less and as pain­less, with the shared goal of giv­ing lo­cal busi­ness­men a much-needed gate­way to the rest of the world.
