Corporate and Commercial

Advising companies and entrepreneurs

Companies and their owners have access to a strong team with extensive expertise and experience in the corporate and commercial field. Our multilingual lawyers provide comprehensive advice to both Swiss companies and multinationals on all contractual and corporate matters. If required, we can also serve as an external legal department.

Commercial and corporate law

Our services range from the incorporation of companies, their structuring, organisation and administration through to liquidations and group restructurings, covering all aspects of law.

We help you to find appropriate legal solutions for implementing business strategies, covering issues such as the manufacture and distribution of products, the provision of services and technology protection and transfer.


We advise on all aspects and phases of complex transactions. Whether you are looking to expand your business or are facing a difficult situation, our commercial approach and broad experience in a wide range of sectors will provide the basis for your success in carrying out transactions.

Our advice covers the entire spectrum: from company acquisitions and sales, acquisitions of business units through to mergers, takeovers, joint ventures and restructurings, including private equity and venture capital transactions and financings. We also advise on all aspects of stock exchange and capital market law, with some of our advisors acting as authorised issuer representatives at the SIX Swiss Exchange.

Revision des Schweizer Aktienrechts: Modernisierung und Flexibilisierung
Die Reform zur Modernisierung des schweizerischen Aktienrechts erhielt nach rund zehn Jahren Projektdauer am 19. Juni 2020 die endgültige Zustimmung des Parlaments. Sie modernisiert das Schweizer Aktienrecht unter Beibehaltung seiner Kernprinzipien und betrifft u.a. das Aktienkapital, die Corporate Governance, Aktionärsrechte, Vergütungen, das Sanierungsrecht und die Vertretung der Geschlechter. Die Revision wird die Schweiz als Unternehmensstandort noch attraktiver machen. Entgegen ersten Ankündigungen ist mit dem Inkrafttreten der Gesetzesrevision voraussichtlich erst im Jahr 2023 zu rechnen.
