Criminal law and legal assistance

White collar crime, asset recovery
Our practice deals with all aspects of white collar crime, including both administrative and fiscal offenses. We represent corporations, executives, and plaintiffs in criminal proceedings and assist them as well on civil claims. We employ all available measures to secure claims (asset recovery).

International legal assistance
We represent private individuals, business customers and foreign states on international legal assistance proceedings in Switzerland (for example, extradition, freezing of accounts, confiscation of assets, or seizure of documents). In a number of cases, the measures can be limited by special agreement with the authorities or via appeals to the competent court.

We also assist our clients with administrative assistance proceedings on international tax matters, where different rules apply. In this regard, we have represented wealthy US-citizens relating on official requests for international assistance by the IRS to Switzerland.
