We value the direct exchange with our clients, who are as diverse as we are. From SMEs to DAX-listed companies. From Silicon Valley companies to hidden champions from rural regions in Germany. From artists to festival organisers. From event agencies to advertising partners. From start-ups to established mail order companies. From internet shops to internet platforms. From author to publisher. From website developers to software companies or IT insurers.
With over 25 years of experience, this approach has led us to become one of the largest IT, IP and data protection boutique practices in Germany and Switzerland. Like our clients, we are dynamic, tech-savvy and creative when it comes to developing practical solutions. In our highly specialised teams, we combine experience with curiosity and perseverance.
We know the markets and always aim to offer practical solutions. We rely on flat hierarchies, strong teams and open exchange. Closed doors only exist for client meetings or telephone calls.
Each location is deeply rooted in its market and jurisdiction. As many legal challenges driven by technology are always linked to developments beyond our own borders, it is not uncommon for our teams to work across different locations. Sharing a common focus and cultivating a similar office culture ensures a high level of collaboration between the teams.
Based in Zug, we serve clients from all over Switzerland (incl. French-speaking Switzerland and Ticino). As Zug offers ideal conditions for start-ups and crypto and block chain companies, we have our finger on the pulse of DLT developments and digitalisation in Switzerland.
