Newsletter 2/21: The revised Swiss Data Protection Act (FADP): Changes and their impact on companies

30.03.21

In fall 2020, the Swiss Parliament adopted the total revision of the Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP). The revised FADP is expected to enter into force mid-2022. The purpose of the total revision is to bring the FADP into line with the rapid changes in technology, the changed social circumstances, and the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (GDPR) that entered into force in 2018.

Newsletter 1/21: Modernisation of Swiss Company Law

09.02.21

After a project lasting ten years, the extensive revision to company law is (finally) being implemented. The provisions relating to gender quotas and transparency rules for commodity companies (both with a transition period) already entered into force on 1 January 2021; the main part will enter into force in 2022. Key features of the new law are the introduction of new principles on corporate governance such as those relating to gender quotas and transparency regulations for commodity companies. The revision also includes a variety of simplified procedures and clarifications, in particular more flexibility for changes to share capital, the permissibility of interim dividends and purely virtual general meetings. Read our newsletter to find out what opportunities the revised law will offer, but also what duties will require action.

Newsletter 2/20: Brexit: Trade marks with protection for the European Union (“EU trade marks”) – what do owners need to look out for and do?

15.12.20

Do you own a trade mark that is protected throughout the entire European Union (“EU trade mark”)? Do you regularly review whether the trade marks you own still correspond to their current use and are thus “fit” for the future? In both cases, we recommend that you read our newsletter and hope that it provides you with food for thought regarding the maintenance of your trademark portfolio now, with Brexit happening, and in the future. We would be pleased to assist you at any time.
