Andrea has the following life story to tell you:
“While studying my law degree at Comenius University in Bratislava I started work in a law firm in 1999 as an advocate assistant in Slovakia, assisting advocates in everything needed including corporate and tax matters.
Following my law degree, I completed my second degree in Economy University in Bratislava, started practising in 2005 as an advocate in Slovakia and in 2006 in the Czech Republic.
Helping my brother Imrich with his legal work (back in Bratislava, Slovakia) while he studied in London, UK, we started cooperating more closely, joined forces and gradually specialising in servicing open-minded entrepreneurs and business owners in doing business in offshore and onshore jurisdictions. Hence, I have added to my work skill set the corporate services, accounting and dealing with numerous compliance and legal issues with local close associates in various countries in which our clients have had their companies. Since Imrich was in London, we started helping businesses from abroad to enter the UK market, structuring their business in tax-efficient way and assisting with their company formation and management. It quickly expanded into servicing also other onshore and offshore countries (e.g. Cyprus, Malta, BVI, UAE, Singapore) for our clients’ companies..
With an increased attractiveness of Dubai as the business hub in Middle East and entry point to Africa, Imrich moved to Dubai in 2016 and we started assisting clients interested to set up their business in UAE and/or neighbouring countries.
Following the Brexit vote in 2016 and UK companies starting preparing their contingency plans to set up subsidiaries in or relocate to continental Europe, we added in 2018 Cyprus to our list to assist the businesses to put their plans into reality, helping them with company formations and administration of their companies in Cyprus.
However, this is not the end. We gradually explore new countries for their attractive, often unique features of doing business. Thus, we constantly upgrade our list where we can help and support business owners to do business in by our range of services.
