We work with businesses at the intersection of technology and business model, across all corporate functions: from trademark law to marketing and customer service.
These include start-ups developing software or other new business models on the one hand, and SMEs and listed corporations in the midst of digital transformation on the other. What unites them all is grappling with German, European, Swiss and international regulations.
For private individuals, it is often a matter of data protection and preservation of privacy or protection of their fundamental rights.
We have been advising the majority of our clients for many years. They value us for our first-class advice from a single source, our high level of technological competence, our in-depth knowledge of the industry and our understanding of what makes companies tick.
Most of the relationships that we have with our clients can be described as close – something we not only appreciate, but also see as an obligation.

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.
