Private Client Disputes

We represent private individuals in national and international distributions of estates, in inheritance disputes, in disputes arising from trusts or foundations, or relating to trusts or foundations, contractual disputes, or libel and violation of personality rights. We assist our clients in estate planning and the execution of their wills.  

Our approach to private client disputes

Our interdisciplinary approach and deep understanding of different industries and family dynamics enable us to achieve our clients’ goals reliably and efficiently. Our teams are designed to be lean yet effective, with our partners actively involved at every stage, ensuring our clients receive top-tier service.

We are independent and conflict-free

As an independent law firm based in Switzerland, we have the liberty to collaborate with any advisor globally and serve as the central coordinator for all legal representatives involved in a strategy that spans multiple jurisdictions. Our lack of affiliation with any international networks or global offices allows us to partner with the most suitable lawyers for each specific dispute and work alongside our clients' existing advisors worldwide.

Our firm's independence and focus solely on dispute resolution enable us to take on cases that many other firms cannot, due to conflicts of interest. We are a preferred firm for conflict referral work, trusted by some of the world's largest law firms to protect their clients' interests. This trust cements our status as premier specialists in private client disputes.
