Masuda, Funai, Eifert & Mitchell, Ltd. to Participate in Expert Panel at Forum for Expatriate Management's EMEA Global Mobility Summit in London


Masuda, Funai, Eifert & Mitchell, Ltd. will join forces in London (November 8-9) with 10 member firms from Alliott Group, the firm’s international alliance, to present an expert insight panel on the tax, immigration and legal compliance issues that need to be addressed when transferring an employee to a different jurisdiction. The Forum for Expatriate Management’s EMEA Global Mobility Summit is one of Europe’s leading conferences for global mobility and HR directors responsible for managing regional and global expatriate programmes.

Over two days, approximately 400 delegates will exchange information with their peers and with leading vendors to the fast-growing global mobility sector on topics including tax, laws and regulations, immigration, compensation and benefits, technology, talent management, finance and payroll.

Kathie Gaber joins international Alliott Group colleagues from nine countries across the EMEA, Australasia and North America regions to form the multidisciplinary global team which will present an expert panel session. Kathie is Vice President, Director and Chair of the Immigration Practice at Masuda, Funai, Eifert & Mitchell, Ltd. and has more than three decades of experience assisting C-suite executives move around the world.

President, Tom McMenamin comments: “Transferring executives across geographic borders for any duration involves a number of compliance issues. Regional and global mobility programs need to be skillfully designed to optimize remuneration structures and other related costs, and to mitigate risk. As a member of a multi-skilled team of cross border professional advisers, Kathie is at the conference to demonstrate how global mobility challenges can be successfully overcome.”

A 2018 benchmarking study titled "Managing the Global Mobility Function" (published by the Forum for Expatriate Management and co-sponsored by Alliott Group) reveals that the management of business travel and increasingly complex immigration regulations take up an increasing amount of global mobility professionals’ time and attention.

Kathie Gaber adds: “I’m looking forward to participating in the panel and offering immigration expertise and guidance for the numerous companies that are challenged with the growing complexities of remaining compliant while operating across borders.”
