Luxembourg, porte d’entrée vers l’Union Européenne et vers le monde

Beaucoup de clients souhaitent utiliser Luxembourg comme point d’entrée pour le développement de leurs affaires sur la scène internationale. Ceci est particulièrement vrai pour les sociétés, banques ou entreprises qui sont à la recherche d’une plate-forme à partir de laquelle ils pourront déployer leurs activités dans les pays de l’Union européenne, notamment en profitant du régime du Passeport Européen pour les activités bancaires et financières. Dans ce contexte, nous pouvons fournir notre assistance sur des questions juridiques relatives au droit luxembourgois, mais nous sommes aussi en mesure d’élargir notre conseil en y incluant une perspective internationale grâce à la collaboration avec nos cabinets « partenaires » à l’étranger.
