From our offices in Amsterdam, Brussels, Luxembourg, Dubai, London and New York we advise and support our clients on their European inbound and outbound investments. Moreover, our branch offices in major economic centers around the world provide a first-line point of contact for our foreign clients.

Established relationships with high-level governmental departments in the Benelux and with European institutions, provide our clients with easy access to information and assist them in establishing a network to help achieve their business purposes.
