Litigation and Arbitration. We represent parties in litigation or arbitration and advise on opportunities to resolve disputes prior to or during proceedings. Dispute resolution is a core competence of VISCHER. With a team of 14 practitioners who primarily focus on litigation and arbitration, we have one of the largest litigation departments in Switzerland.
Employment Contracts and Litigation. Our dedicated employment law team has vast experience relating to employment contracts, consulting agreements, employment manuals and employment litigation before specialized employment courts.
Tax and VAT. VISCHER’s tax team is one of the largest tax teams in a commercial full service firm in Switzerland. Our main field of tax practice is corporate taxation and long-term assistance to corporations, i.e., setting up and maintaining tax structures within groups, both national and international. We set up principal structures, as well as domiciliary companies, for companies selling life sciences products outside Switzerland. We also negotiate tax holidays for start-ups. Our clients can expect competent, tailor-made solutions, encompassing both the underlying civil law structures and the resulting tax law issues.
Insolvency Law. We advise and represent both creditors and debtors in complex financial restructurings and advise directors and management about liability risks in insolvency situations.
Competition Law. We advise on diverse competition matters, including Swiss Competition Commission inquiries, compliance and merger investigations.
Unsolicited Takeovers. We advise on anti-takeover planning, execution, and defense.
We’re always happy to explore ways we may be able to help.
