Multinational law expertise
Thanks to the outstanding support and consulting by Nadja we managed to successfully finish the formation of our US based enterprise in short time. Nadja helped not only by providing law advice, but supported with all the administrative and organisatorial questions too. We especially appreciated her help on our Visa issues. Nadja consulted our company in 3 areas: formation of LLC, Visa, employee contract.

I recently worked wtih Ms. Vietz on an international projecting involving the establishment of a US presence for a German-based specialized machinery manufacturer. Ms. Vietz was highly trustworthy and professional in handling all matters related to this rather complex project. She also was extremely effective in interacting with the owner of the German-based company, who was actively involved in the project and visited Seattle specifically to discuss numerous matters directly with Ms. Vietz. She has a broad understanding of handling such cross border transactions. Both I and my client were very satisfied with Ms. Vietz and can highly recommend her to future potential clients.

Ongoing business relationship
I worked with Nadja on a number of cases and she always advised me very well. I was particulary satisfied with her deep knowledge of both US and European law and how she managed to deal with different legal systems. She addressed any new issue with great care and came up with excellent proposals very quickly. Overall, Nadja is an excellent lawyer and unless other US lawyers she can handle international matters with great ease. Her spanish and german background are most helpful in this regard.
