Leading immigration company Fragomen came out with a statement on Wednesday on their new office launch in Amsterdam, as a result of its dedication to its Netherlands-based customers and the European region. Partner Christine Sullivan – who has been the leader of the company’s Netherlands Corporate Immigration Practice from Brussels for the past five years, will be the new leader of the Fragomen office.
Fragomen has been a supplier for the Dutch-related immigration and mobility advice for the multinationals, both medium and small operations and individuals for over 20 years via its Brussels-based Benelux practice. Due to its newest place in Amsterdam, Fragomen is now able to set up a local presence in the Netherlands, which is a critical business center in Europe.
According to Lance Kaplan – Managing Partner of Fragomen’s International Practice Group as well as member of the company’s Executive Committe ”The launch of our Netherlands office advances our objective of strategic growth in Europe. The Netherlands is one of the most dynamic markets in Europe, and indeed the world, and it continues to attract businesses and entrepreneurs who require strategic immigration advice.”
Furthermore, Sullivan also mentioned that ”given the practical and business-friendly approach with respect to Dutch immigration, we are able to partner with our clients to achieve their ambitious business goals, not just in the Netherlands but also across Europe.”
Fragomen includes immigration and lawyer professionals who speak both Dutch and English, and they serve as a great help of the local and international legal knowledge, as well as practical experience supporting firms who aspire to create and increase further in the Netherlands. Moreover, the office which is located in Amsterdam will strengthen the relationships that Fragomen has established with the Dutch immigration authorities. Such close relationships began cultivating from 1999 at the time when Fragomen Brussels office was first created with the first international office outside the U.S, along with the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the Dutch Labour Authority, and other similar Ministries.
However, because of the pandemic travel restrictions, the Netherlands-based staff will work only at a certain degree at the moment. After the ease of restrictions, the office will then greet its clients and staff through a physical approach.
