James Ahern and Matthew Eitner of Laidlaw sued by Remalda Cosmetics

Laidlaw Company has been caught up in a fresh round of controversy. This time round, a company that they were representing in 2014, Remalda Therapeutics is suing them for various damages. Remalda therapeutics is a clinical stage company that concerns itself with development of treatments and therapies for various chronic conditions. In 2014, the company wanted an investment banking firm to help them with the process. They contracted Laidlaw to perform the task and this is what has led to the problems.
The initial complaint that Remalda had launched against Laidlaw has been amended. They now state that Laidlaw still owes them fiduciary duty for some of the information that was disclosed and has caused them losses. It would seem like the payment the court had ordered Laidlaw to do wasn’t made, and Remalda Therapeutics is not too happy about it.
This is not the first time that Laidlaw is finding itself in such a situation. There was a time a few years ago when there were widespread complaints from clients about poor service delivery. The strange thing about the company is the manner in which they handle these complaints. For instance, during that case, it took the intervention of FINRA to compel the company to make the necessary adjustments for the customers who were involved in the case.
The pattern that has been established by Laidlaw is one of being less concerned than they should be about complaints from their customers. The company has already informed their clients about the looming fresh legal battle and thanked them for their understanding and continued support. They have vowed that they will do their best to make sure that the issues they have with Laidlaw are settled. As for Laidlaw, lots of changes will need to be done to their leadership if they are to earn the trust of new clients.

Geoffrey Cone Intervenes With Vital Information Regarding Foreign Trusts

In the recent past, the media covered about the foreign trust of New Zealand and how the laws surrounding them have changed. Many opinions have been posted about the story and professionals from the law fraternity have come out with comments that could shine some light to the problem. The trusts being highlighted are touching on wealthy individuals and involve complex financial deals that require careful analysis and expert intervention to be resolved.


The truth about the whole issue is that laws around tax and trusts are mundane and cannot be taken lightly when solving heavy problems like the ones recorded recently in the New Zealand market. It is vital to first have a keen look at the issue in the industry and to break this down, Geoffrey Cone, an experienced commercial litigation expert, intervened with vital information and suggestions.


One truth that those reporting about the issue don’t understand is that New Zealand cannot be considered a tax haven, at least according to OECD. This state is likely not to change in near future since the country has never been considered a tax haven and there is little effort to push for developments that could change the situation.


There are characteristics that exclude the country from tax havens, one being that countries that are ranked in that category don’t impose taxes or if they do the rates are minimal. There is also lack of transparency and present legislation bars the exchange of data between governments. Until the time New Zealand will solve these disparities, only then will the country become a tax haven in line with the requirements of OECD.


According to the 2002 gold transparency standard, one of the parts of legislation that are pursued is meant to ease the exchange of information across departments and governments. The country does not qualify even under the new rules and there is a long way to go before the rights needed are included.
