London Representative Office
_Luxembourg is an ideal jurisdiction of choice for international business and cross-border transactions. Ideally located in the centre of Europe, and only an hour and a half away from London, it offers plenty of opportunities to companies that would like to establish new entities in the EU, or develop their business in bordering countries.
It is clear that the Brexit process brings a number changes and issues, which both UK and non-UK companies will have to adapt to and comply with. However, the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union should not stop continued cross-border business development nor mar UK’s commercial relationship with other countries.
Thanks to its business-friendly tax approach, and its tendency towards of innovation and adaptation, Luxembourg will remain an ally of choice for UK companies that want to maintain successful economic relationships with the European Union.
Our firm is well-positioned to guide UK clients from London through Luxembourg’s legal, tax and regulatory framework, and to offer pragmatic and tailor-made solutions to help clients and businesses reach their goals.
"Client satisfaction is our top priority. This is why, as a response to the increased interest in the Luxembourg market, and following the announcement of Brexit, Wildgen decided to expand into the UK. This will allow us to better service our UK clients and facilitate cross-border matters. Apart from new business development opportunities, our presence in London will help us to maintain existing our relationships with referral firms and end-clients in the UK, better understand their needs, and service them on a localised basis.", Samia Rabia, Partner
