I advise clients in drafting contracts and assist them in contract negotiations to identify and minimize the risks of subsequent disputes arising out of their contractual relationships. In case of a looming dispute, I provide clients with a risk assessment by determining the chances of success and the expected costs of a dispute.
I represent clients in arbitration proceedings under different institutional arbitration rules such as the ICC Rules, Swiss Rules, Vienna Rules, or DIS Rules as well as in ad-hoc proceedings. I also assist foreign law firms in arbitration proceedings by acting as their Swiss co-counsel. I act as an arbitrator in international commercial arbitration proceedings before the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and assist arbitrators as independent administrative secretary in multiple international arbitration cases.
I represent clients before Swiss courts in commercial and business disputes. My areas of expertise cover general contract law, employment and real estate matters, agency and distribution agreements, post-M&A as well shareholder disputes arising from shareholder agreements. Further, I assist clients in debt enforcement and enforcement of (foreign) judgments and arbitral awards.
Business Law Consulting
I provide legal advice to clients in all areas of business law. Particularly, I support clients in the setup, maintenance and termination of internal and external contractual relationships of their company (e.g. shareholder agreements, employment contracts, sales and lease contracts, license agreements, non-disclosure agreements). I further support clients to ensure their compliance with the relevant regulations (such as product safety, antitrust, data protection).
