Private Clients

Owners of privately held businesses are routinely challenged by myriad of business, legal and family matters. They seek a single source of advice that is technically sound, pragmatic and discreet from someone who understands their unique personal and professional objectives. By employing interdisciplinary legal skills and sound judgment, we counsel successful businesses and their owners. Our Firm members act as counselors and advisors as well as legal technicians. We focus on understanding the business objectives and family dynamics of our clients, allowing us to provide customized solutions. Our expertise includes the formation, management and (re)structuring of family companies, trusts or foundations. Through a sound analysis of the patrimonial, legal and financial structure of the clients’ assets, our Firm is able to present strategies and solutions tailored to the specificities of each situation. Our team integrates both the family and business concerns of our clients into the planning process.

Moreover, our Firm is able to provide full service arrangements to clients wishing to relocate their place of domicile in Switzerland. The services of our Firm range from the negotiation of a personal lump-sum taxation agreement with the tax authorities and the application for a residence permit, to the client’s representation within the frame of the acquisition and financing of real estate properties and the necessary logistical assistance.
