Dezan Shira & Associates’ Presence in Europe

Europe has significant trade and investment dealings with Asia – ASEAN and India are both among the bloc’s top trade partners outside the EU. With parts of Asia rapidly developing and the EU pursuing trade agreements with Asian counterparts, there is a wealth of opportunities for European investors in the region.

Incorporated in Munich in January of 2021, Dezan Shira & Associates’ European office serves as a first point of contact for European companies wishing to do business in Asia. In both the Munich and Milan offices, our European-based team works with a variety of partners to educate businesses on the economic performance and regulatory environment of developing Asian economies.
