International assignments and career expatriates are key resources for international Group’s operations. In today’s complex and changing legal environment specific to international mobility, companies need professional and specialized Legal & Consulting Services.
ITX has been giving advice to internal and external multinational clients in the field of Global Mobility for over 15 years. This has enabled us to create an International Mobility Consulting department that can answer and help companies with any specific issue or complex cases.
