Expat Management Group’s journey started in 2014 when Nihat Kurt and Dominique Coenen joined forces after years of working separately at major global immigration law firms, advising multinationals and SME companies.
After noticing a gap in the immigration landscape, they saw an opportunity to offer quality services and attention to compliancy against fair and clear prices. They quickly realized that clients need immigration advice that goes beyond immigration and coincides with other fields of expertise (i.e. tax, social security, and relocation) and satisfies the needs of both the business and the expat. Hence Expat Management Group was established.
Today, Expat Management Group is a dynamic group of recognized legal experts and relocation specialists based in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany. Offering a broad range of personal and corporate immigration, relocation, and settling-in services for expats and their dependents, we make global mobility accessible and easy.
With the solid base and experience of a large firm and the flexibility and commitment of a small one. Seamlessly. Frictionless. Human first. Every step of the way.
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.
