Companies face challenges when entering new global markets (Global Market Entry) and with their existing global operations (Globalization). Lombard Global offers a comprehensive suite of services that leverage the right people with proven processes and are enabled with technology, analytics and best practices. Our proven business model combines senior global professionals who operate locally overseas with senior global professionals who operate at the headquarters level. We augment our core group of management consultants and investment bankers with world-class senior advisors, such as #3 ranked Vijay Govindarajan of HBR's Thinkers 50.
In our supposedly globalized economy, business is often advised to charge head first across borders as if the whole world were one seamless, flat marketplace. But the world isn't so flat in reality. Businesses that don't take into account specific political, cultural, and economic differences are doomed to fail. Picking up the phone and asking your lawyer or accountant to take you global or to fix something in your current global operation isn't going to cut in today's sophisticated global economy.
Lombard Global provides a pro-growth, yet pragmatic, results-based approach to global market entry. Our delivery is flexible enough to allow you to participate in separate service modules and structured enough so that you can participate in the entire end to end solution. Typically, a solution might consist of research, strategy and execution.
Services provided include:
Your requirements at this phase may be for a more comprehensive primary and secondary research package or could be much more basic. Our expertise allows you to assimilate information on the ground in specific geographic regions. Our research team and suppliers adhere to CASRO, ESOMAR or national professional standards.

If you want a temporary, cost effective and low risk solution to global market entry, try Global Employment Outsourcing. Recruiting, hiring and on boarding local workers in countries where you may or may not have a local entity is a challenge. Payroll, HR management, legal and financial compliance makes global expansion a full-time task.
Lombard Global, Inc. and its partners are multinational payroll specialists. We have gained unprecedented levels of knowledge relating to local regulatory bodies, on boarding and off boarding, complex payroll calculations and cultural differences, in both banking processes and employee expectations. Our model is similar to a “global PEO” or a ”global professional employment organization". With you, we provide a compliant set of solutions, beginning with the need to hire a local worker right through the worker’s long- or short-term employment contract, co-employment, and if needed, eventual termination.
Quickly Deploy a Global Workforce
We can manage the entire process on your behalf. You can hire one employee or a global team without establishing local entities. You and your local worker will enjoy a quick and easy on boarding process and you will have confidence knowing that your global workforce is being managed legally, compliantly and professionally.
Mitigate Global Employment Risks
What makes global employment risk management such a challenge is the lack of local information about individual countries. The regulations are often written in the local language, social costs and tax calculations are foreign and sometimes very complicated, and diverse cultural and business practices are difficult to navigate.
We have simplified the whole process by utilizing a global network of In-Country Experts (ICEs). We are proud to have a network of long-standing relationships with high-quality partners who are contractually obligated to meet local compliance requirements on our clients' behalf.
Control & Predict Costs
Whether you have one worker or a global team, you can deploy a global workforce without establishing global operations and be assured that your employees are being managed legally, compliantly and professionally.
Once you have decided to establish operations overseas, we protect and grow your existing overseas operations with an integrated solution for your HR, finance, tax and legal needs. Having the ease of one firm and minimal points of contact saves you time, money and takes the stress out of these processes. This allows you to focus on growth. Our one point of contact services works seemlessly with SaaS dashboard work flow technology to deliver a consistent and streamlined solution. Our support teams are SAS70/SSAE16 Type II certified . If you are a public company, you can be assured about Sarbanes Oxley compliance for your foreign operations.

More than ever, maturing global organizations must consistently improve efficiency, ensure regulatory compliance and manage localization issues across one or multiple countries. The road to global growth is all about managing risk, costs and a global workforce. All tasks required to provide day to day support to the local operation are covered by a single operational cost (fixed fee) of running the foreign entities. This typically works out to be half the cost of building a U.S., European or APAC team in house.
