Vistra builds a presence in the Middle East.

Vistra has started building a presence in the Middle East. Esther Boers will head up the operations and will be based locally in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. From Dubai all the other Emirates (such as Abu Dhabi), the GCC region (Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain) and the wider Middle East region will be covered. Initially, the office will be mainly active as a representative/sales office. The office will also offer local incorporation assistance.

Esther started her professional career at the beginning of 1998 in the Netherlands as an international corporate tax lawyer. She worked with an independent full service law firm with integrated corporate law and tax practices world-wide (Loyens & Loeff). In 1999 she moved to Luxembourg for the same firm, where she gained substantial experience with setting up worldwide tax efficient corporate and fund structures. In 2005 she moved to Saudi Arabia and in 2007 she started working as an international tax lawyer with one of the big four firms (KPMG) covering both the Emirates of Sharjah and Dubai (two of the seven Emirates of the United Arab Emirates). During 2009 she moved to a large provider of Trust and Corporate services before leaving to join Vistra.
