Terms & Conditions that you should know before completing the Form. Please read it!
We only accept a limited number of new clients per month
For capacity reasons, we are not in a position to open accounts for small investors (below 250,000 USD/CHF/EUR)
We are not giving professional legal advice or tips for money laundering, tax fraud or other illegal activities
Please be advised that due to incomplete information or forged documents, we cannot provide professional advice to anonymous clients who are not prepared to disclose their real identity. Unfortunately, fraudsters with fabricated documents and tax evaders from all over the world are notoriously trying to misuse our services for fraudulent or other criminal activities. Switzerland is an attractive destination for international fraudsters, as it is very difficult being convicted for fraud as a result of permissive Swiss law. Nowhere do so many fraud cases end in acquittal as in Switzerland. Scam artists know that very well. Switzerland is notoriously abused by fraudsters. Therefore, be sure to use our Form. It increases the quality of advice.
Unfortunately, we must reject unannounced visits to our office in Zurich without prior appointment. Even in case of urgency, we expect a call.
Case Analysis with Consultation
For a 1-hour case analysis with consultation via telephone or on-site in the office, a lump sum of 600 EUR is payable before the consultation.
A case acceptance takes place only based on a written mandate. The mandate only comes into force when the basic fee has been credited to the office account. The basic fee is not refundable and is considered as compensation for services already received.
Swiss professional secrecy based on the client-lawyer privilege
The Swiss professional secrecy based on the client-lawyer privilege is formalized with the signing of the mandate. Complex mandates are agreed by Engagement Letters. Swiss professional secrecy applies by virtue of law starting with the first contact. Compared to the EU countries, customer protection is more extensive due to the Swiss professional secrecy. While lawyers in the EU have to report their clients in case of suspicion for tax evasion, in Switzerland there is full client protection in case of criminal activities. If a Swiss lawyer would file a reporting for a suspected criminal activity the lawyer would accomplish a criminal act himself by disclosing privileged information protected by the client-lawyer privilege based on Swiss professional secrecy act for lawyers.
