We effectively support our clients in a solution-oriented manner in legal, tax and regulatory matters. Our lawyers, tax experts and notaries are organized in the specialist practice teams listed below; each led by an experienced partner.

Our offices are located in Zurich, Basel and Geneva, the largest business centers of Switzerland.
Independence is a key factor for the optimal protection of client interests.
