In the context of international tax reforms, being part of a solid Benelux tax practice is a valuable asset to assist clients when advising on how to overcome their challenges. I fully support Stibbe’s vision to deliver the highest quality of service to its clients, and I am looking forward to making the Luxembourg office play a strong part in our leading Benelux offering.
