Business and Law Professionals

We are reliable, sophisticated, experienced, talented business and law professionals: business consultants, entrepreneurs, attorneys or professors; some of us are still in business, consultants, in private practice or still teaching.

We have a roster from which we assess and choose our best available people for each client and matter. Then you approve us based on our Curriculum Vitae, and any other factors you wish.

Are some of us “retired”? No. From what would we “retire”? We do this work because we love it, and we’re excellent.

A few words about our pricing: No size fits all. Within the framework of our business model (a one-time business assessment fee and a fixed, monthly “on call” fee), we’re open-minded and flexible, which benefits us and you.

A few words about your existing relationships with your attorneys: We welcome all opportunities to collaborate with your existing professionals; attorneys or otherwise.

CEO / Founder

Michael Sweig, J.D., LL.M.

Mr. Sweig is a businessman. He has also served as Party Representative in 13 international arbitrations since 2019, and as an advisor, member of a Board of Managers, Board of Directors, or as a corporate officer for companies ranging from algorithm engineers, automobile wholesaling, construction of public and private sector shooting ranges, medical devices, a Physicians Association, horticultural installations, and oil field equipment distribution.

He concentrates on contracts, international tax aspects of business transactions, and corporate governance. Over the last eight years as Residente Permanente in Mexico, Residente-in-Tramite, Uruguay, and now having moved Resolve Global’s “center of vital interests” to Uruguay. Mr. Sweig has acquired and continues to sharpen his facility with tax treaties, currency regulations, anti-money laundering regulations and protocols, free trade agreements, and bid rigging regulation.

To date, in 2023:
We are proud to have participated in the negotiation of a near full recovery and  settlement for multiple investors and our investment advisory client in the aftermath of losses incurred by a rogue criminal options trader who had misappropriated millions of dollars in partnership funds.

We are assisting a family office client in Argentina with an equity raise for a Green Hydrogen development project.

We are collaborating with Uruguay legal counsel on behalf of a Uruguayan holding company to acquire a license to import classic cars duty free, and to tokenize inventories of classic cars.

In 2022:
Our work was defined by the Ukraine war and the Pandemic aftermath.

– Immediately after Putin invaded Ukraine, we were engaged by Central Asian software developers and investors to study and facilitate capital flow to the West within the limitations of their closed economy currency regulations. The goal was to structure movement through tax efficient cross-border arm’s length transactions.

– We were engaged as Directors of Business Affairs to liaise with outside litigation counsel for an aggrieved Texas Physician’s Association robbed of their interest in almost $300 million of revenue and related profits earned from exclusive, public PCR testing contracts for Covid-19. Most of the profits were stolen by the venture’s dominant shareholder.

In 2021, Mr. Sweig wrote and negotiated the terms and conditions for an estimated $25 million in contracts for 16 planned shooting ranges.

In 2020, Mr. Sweig negotiated resolution of a $27 million oral cproontract dispute in three weeks, by wire transfer of $10 million to our client company and restructuring of the remaining $17 million.
