Litigation

 

Litigation has always been a cornerstone of our firm. Our litigation practice encompasses all types of corporate and commercial disputes and all related issues. We act in employment law litigation, disputes involving trusts and estates as well as all bankruptcy-related proceedings. In addition to ordinary civil proceedings, our forensic practice regularly involves pursuing enforcement action, seeking interlocutory remedies (attachments and other interim measures) as well as representing our clients in international legal assistance, and administrative proceedings.

 

We have extensive experience in advising clients on the Swiss ramifications of US litigation, including class actions.

 

We represent clients before all courts and administrative authorities in Switzerland. Our resources allow us to handle all kinds of disputes efficiently, from routine matters to large and complex multinational litigation. Depending on the needs of the case, our team works with specialists from various practice areas.

 

  • Domestic and international corporate and commercial litigation
  • White collar crime
  • Advice on dispute resolution strategies
  • Administrative proceedings
  • Recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments
  • International judicial assistance
