Fragomen launches office in Amsterdam

Global immigration firm Fragomen is opening an office in Amsterdam to better serve clients on Dutch-related immigration and mobility guidance and advice.

Established in the US in 1951, Fragomen began expanding to markets across the world where clients would benefit from on-the-ground presence. The firm is now considered the world’s largest and leading immigration services provider for multinationals, SMEs and individuals.

It currently serves clients from the Benelux - the politico-economic union of Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg - from an office in Brussels and will expand to Amsterdam where it will strengthen its relationships with Dutch immigration authorities including the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND).

Lance Kaplan, managing partner of Fragomen’s International Practice Group and member of the Firm’s Executive Committee, said: “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.”

Christine Sullivan, who will lead the new office, added: “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.”
