Luxemburg, das Zugangstor zur Europäischen Union und zur Welt

Viele Mandanten wünschen sich Luxemburg als Ausgangspunkt der Entwicklung ihrer Geschäfte auf internationaler Ebene. Dies gilt insbesondere für Gesellschaften, Banken oder Unternehmen, die eine Plattform benötigen, von der aus sie ihre Geschäfte auf die Länder der Europäische Union ausdehnen können, vor allem, indem sie die Regelung des Europäischen Passes für ihre Bank- und Finanztätigkeiten nutzen. In diesem Zusammenhang können wir unsere Unterstützung zu Fragen des luxemburgischen Rechts anbieten, und haben darüber hinaus die Möglichkeit, unsere Beratung dank unserer Zusammenarbeit mit ausländischen Partnerkanzleien um eine internationale Perspektive zu erweitern.
