OAK srl was founded in 2013 as a spin-off of a firm of professionals who had been working as tax and accounting consultants since the 90’s. Interpreting the need of many Italian companies to enter new markets, OAK specialised in consulting for internationalisation.
The letters of the name OAK stand for the services the company delivers to its clients: Overview, Advice and Knowledge, at the same time as the oak tree symbolises life, growth, strength and virtue. Considered an omen of good fortune in ancient times, it is also a tree associated with wisdom and knowledge. Every day we aspire to be as solid as an oak for our clients.
We work closely with businesses and individual professionals as they take on the challenges of their own particular markets, in order to afford them the freedom of being able to focus on their jobs without being weighed down by problems to which we can offer real, practical solutions of considerable added value, contributing to fully informed growth and achievement of goals.
