We advise Swiss or foreign legal entities, in particular in respect of tax on profits and capital, withholding tax, stamp duty and VAT, as well as on the application of Double Taxation Treaties.
 
Lawyers and qualified tax experts in our tax department regularly intervene in mergers and acquisitions, restructurings and profit-sharing schemes.
 
We advise Swiss and foreign families in respect of tax and estate planning. Our lawyers have a considerable experience in the negotiation of tax agreements for families transferring their residence to Switzerland. Lawyers from the tax department advise them in respect of tax assessment and optimisation in all the Swiss cantons and in an international context. They provide their expertise in the commercial and real estate transactions.
 
Our team regularly represents our clients before the authorities and the cantonal and federal tax courts, as well as in respect of international mutual assistance.
