"We are delighted to welcome Timo to the firm. His experience and dedication to client service make him a fantastic fit for the firm," said George Koureas, Europe Managing Partner at Fragomen. "Timo joins us at a pivotal time in the evolution and growth of our practices in Europe, and I am excited to work with him and our team in Zurich".

Mr. Heck's career as a business immigration professional spans more than a decade, and he has spent many years leading the immigration teams at a number of well known firms while overseeing immigration programmes for clients throughout the DACH region. He has particular expertise in advising clients in the IT, FMCG and manufacturing industries. He also advises private clients and high net worth individuals on Swiss immigration matters. Mr. Heck is also adept at optimising technology to support client programmes, which is in line with our strategic focus on technology at the firm.

"Knowing first hand the complexities of immigration into Switzerland, I am committed to client service and developing successful immigration strategies for clients," said Mr. Heck. "The immigration landscape remains challenging and as the global pandemic continues, clients need the integrated, strategic support that only a firm like Fragomen can provide. I am excited to join the firm and work with my new colleagues in Switzerland as part of this next phase in Fragomen's growth strategy."
