Purpose of the Practice Group

In today’s world our clients are exploring international business opportunities more than ever either in search of new distribution markets or reducing operational expenses or productions costs. Global mobility nowadays is no longer a trend but also seen as critical to deploy and develop international talent.

Whatever the case may be, all our clients are very well aware of the ever more costly, complex and time-consuming nature of the various legal, tax, social security and legal compliance requirements of a global mobile workforce. Whether it relates to long-term assignments, short-term assignments, local-plus packages, permanent relocations, frequent business travellers or stealth commuters, employers and employees will have to deal with the issues involved and are in need of professional advice and guidance.
