The view is different from the summit


Granum Inc., DBA Choice Organic Teas, the First Organic Tea Company in North America, was bought over in 2007, from its original founder/owner, by a group of investors, mainly from India. The company appointed its President/CEO from among the investors which effectively meant outsourcing the President’s job overseas and till the last day, Granum had the unique experience of being run by a non-resident President!

This scenario threw up its own set of challenges especially on matters of Corporate Governance, record keeping and related legal matters.

Summit Law was brought to our attention through the friendly efforts of Keith Seo, who had just joined the law firm. It gives me pleasure to confirm that all required duties (and beyond) were carried out, over the years, to the absolute satisfaction of the Granum Board and with no hidden costs. We recently entered into a sale agreement, for the assets of the company and this was handled with professionalism by Mark Worthington and his immediate team comprising Laura Harper and Laura Bertin, to name just a few. I believe the costs have been maintained at very reasonable levels.

With mainly foreign shareholders, this has been an enriching experience and I would freely recommend Summit Law for anyone in need of such services and I would wish Summit Law every success in the future.
