Most first-generation immigrants and visiting businesspeople are surprised by relatively small diversification of professional services in the United States. Historically, the professional development in USA has been oriented towards narrow specialties in distinctly different subjects.

Thus, there are very few advisors and consultants in the U.S. like Mayflower who can boast multi-disciplinary practices and expertise. The Ethics Canons of most states prohibit Big Four accounting companies from practicing law. As a result, each business has a multitude of advisors, e.g. an accounting firm, a law firm, a business consulting firm, etc.

Thus, there are multiple sources of professional advice, each probably a competent counselor if taken separately. However, most of them do not communicate to each other, which leads to redundancy, miscommunication and thousands of dollars of overhead to pay for all these services.

If you partner with Mayflower, you get a benefit of a multi-profile versatile advisor who will present you with a comprehensive analysis from a financial, business, tax and legal prospectives. Consolidation of services in one reliable and trustworthy partner creates myriad opportunities for businesspeople from Europe and other parts of the world, and what seemed like a barely affordable and conceptually disjointed idea of bringing business to U.S. becomes a reality.

Our multi-faceted professionals will decode federal, state and municipal laws of any U.S. and off-shore jurisdiction and present your firm with conclusions and a recommended course of action.

A process that seemed impossible to comprehend, or a court rule dating back to the 18th century and thus convoluted and confusing, will no longer be a hurdle on your path to achieving the business goal of a smooth and cost-efficient transition into the U.S. commerce.


Our firm was named after the first English ship that sailed to remote America in 1620 with one hundred and two brave pilgrims aboard looking for freedom from religious persecution. An image of the Mayflower set against the rising sun symbolizes courage and lack of fear of the unknown, as well as the desire for expanding horizons, erasing borders and for economic independence and well-being. Unlike the 17th century pilgrims, our clients don\’t need to suffer through bureaucratic storms to discover America. Mayflower clients can relax knowing that they have a trusted advisor overseas, one that will always come to rescue and hold their hand through the rough seas until we reach a smooth sail.

Trust Mayflower – and your problems will become our problems. Trust our professionals – and your journey will be happy and carefree.
