Commercial and Contracts

Real-world experts who understand commercial realities

From small- and medium-sized enterprises through to international giants, we cover the full range of commercial activity. Our advice is rooted in deep sector knowledge, understanding of key value drivers and risk factors – and a commitment to always putting our clients' interests first.    

We specialise in establishing and structuring all aspects of new business operations and cooperation schemes in and out of Switzerland. And we can meet any commercial or contractual challenge faced by businesses already up and running. Expert in all areas of traditional contract law, we provide specialised support from drafting and negotiations to implementation and enforcement. If you operate in a regulated industry such as food, health, energy, transport, life sciences or finance, we can help you manage all regulatory, as well as commercial and legal, aspects of your business. Whatever the brief, we take a collaborative approach to exploring all available options before agreeing next steps that work best for you.
