Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return.
This would certainly be the jurisdiction of the USA.
And even then laws vary from state to state, so the law in New York is different from the law in Florida.
I would therefore recommend that you consider advice from lawyers in the jurisdiction you are seeking to set up in.

Clearly there are a lot here and I would make sure that you get prices from a number of them to make sure you get value for money.
US law firms typically work on a retainer, therefore you would need to send them $1000 and they would work until that $1000 is used up.
They would not just send you a monthly bill, unless you have an established trading account with them.
In the alternative there are UK companies with US based offices:
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
hello Alex, thank you for the response. i have contacted the firms in the uk and will give it a go to the New york based ones as well.
