Expat Management Group has come forth out of an idea from Nihat Kurt and Dominique Coenen. Having both worked at a major worldwide immigration law firm, advising multinationals and SME companies, they experienced firsthand on the complexities and business requirements in this niche market. While reviewing the immigration landscape, the services, needs and issues of some of the clients, they concluded that the corporate immigration consultancy in the Netherlands could do better. They believe that clients deserve quality services and attention to compliancy against fair and clear pricing. Moreover, clients need immigration advice that go beyond immigration, coincide with other fields of expertise (i.e. tax and social security) and satisfies the needs of the business. Hence Expat Management Group was established.
Expat Management Group now aims to offer profound knowledge in corporate immigration law which can be successfully integrated into best practices. The company has the solid base and experience of a large firm and at the same time offers the flexibility of a smaller enterprise. This experience combined with the flexibility and commitment allows Expat Management Group to provide proactive, effective, efficient boutique firm services to its clients.
Expat Management Group founded by Nihat Kurt and Dominique Coenen in the heart of the city of Amsterdam. As a first and small office it turns out to be a perfect base to serve the first corporate and private clients. Services are limited to immigration law and ad hoc coordination of related mobility services. Within a year the first employees at Expat Management Group are contracted to manage clients and caseload.
Upon specific client request, Expat Management Group decides to no longer coordinate particular services to 3rd party providers. A new branch in the firm has been set up and Expat Management Group starts offering in-house relocation and settling-in services to its clients.
The Firms continues to grow in staff, services and satisfied clients. As such Expat Management Group moves to a new, bigger and more beautiful office at the Herengracht in Amsterdam. The office floor is shared with TTT-Group, tax partner of Expat Management Group. Together Expat Management Group and TTT jointly serve their clients with mobility solutions in the Netherlands and abroad.
NEW OFFICE IN BELGIUM
Due to new business opportunities lying ahead, Expat Management Group opens an office in the center of Brussels. With the expansion into Belgium and with Massimo Maesen joining the firm as Partner, Expat Management Group, existing for exactly five years now returns to where it all started and has secured a foothold in the Belgian corporate immigration world.
Expat Management Group broadens its footprint and becomes one of the very few (if not only) Benelux mobility firm! Naturally and within a year after expanding into Belgium, the mobility business directs the firm into Luxembourg as well.
