The world is literally our oyster
Due to different networks and close contacts the world is literally our oyster. We can help our clients with on-site contacts all across the world – effectively and without fuss. With strong local and global partners, we are ideally equipped for every challenge and every problem that you may have. In tandem with our own expertise and our dynamic and creative working method, you’ll find a reliable partner in us with whom you can weather any storm.
We have particularly good relationships to our direct neighbours, the Netherlands. The Netherlands and Germany are important trading partners. In 2016, Germany received almost 100 billion USD in exports from the Netherlands. This high degree of trading activities prompted Reef to place great emphasis on the Netherlands. With numerous close partners on-site, we ensure the best support for our clients on both sides of the border.
Our Middle East (MENA) Desk has the required insider knowledge when the wind takes us East. As part of a large network specialising in the MENA region we can support our clients capably and legally compliant in their activities in the wider Middle East. Furthermore, we are partners of the Emerging Markets Advisory Group (IsFin).
