Shiva Roofeh is our relocation specialist in Madrid. She relocated from the USA nine years ago and has worked for years in intercultural management and communication. Her career is only natural, given her professional and personal history. Born in Iran and raised in the US, Shiva began her life as international citizen at the age of four, has moved eleven times across six countries. She knows first hand the mix of excitement and uncertainty of moving internationally and the patience and sense of urgency that come with it. Through her experience she has developed an international relocation strategy that aims to combine local needs with personal needs while balancing hard deadlines with flexibility and humanity.
Strong Abogados is here to help you, your employees or your family settle into a new life in Spain with minimum effort and maximum effectiveness and comfort, saving you precious time and money.
International relocation of executives, other employees and individuals is more and more frequent.
They, along with their families, suddenly find themselves in a new and unknown city, to which they have to quickly adapt. This adaptation naturally generates a mountain of questions. Statistics show that almost 70% of unsuccessful employee transfers are due to the inability of the family to adapt to the physical and cultural environment of the new country.
Whether you are on an international relocation, starting your own international business or moving for personal reasons, using professionals for your relocation will save you time, money and frustration. We offer relocation services in Madrid and Barcelona. Besides your relocation specialist, Strong Abogados has CPAs and lawyers on hand so no question goes unanswered.
For employees, that means the peace of mind of having experts manage bureaucracy and paperwork. It means having time to spend with your family during this transition instead of hours of online research, waiting in lines and frustration due to miscommunication. It means the luxury of focusing your energy on the points of the transition that matter most to YOU, whatever they may be.
For families, it means working with a group of professionals who are expats themselves -- professionals who know exactly what your situation is, what your frustrations and fears are, and who know that you are the key to a successful transition. It means having partners who do the research for you, guide you through the paperwork, and make the logistics as easy as possible so you can focus on building your own network and community in your new home.
For employers it means, simply put, savings. Remember, 70% of relocations fail because of the inability of the family to adjust. The company focuses its energy on the employee - are they the right fit for this new market? Do they have the personality and motivation to move? But the employee has the refuge of the company to keep them grounded in a new culture. No matter how different the new culture is, the company is still the same. And that little bit of “sameness” is a major benefit during such a transition.
Their family, however, doesn't have that bit of "sameness". And if their family isn't happy and isn't adjusting, then the assignee will eventually rethink their relocation.
A relocation service that focuses on the human side of transitions - on cultural adaptation and relationship building, in addition to the logistics and legalities of housing, work and residency permits - that is a relocation service that thinks and works for long term success of relocation. That is the strength of Strong Abogados.
