Our knowledge, expertise & publications
Whether you are a foreign legal practice looking for evidence gathering under mutual legal assistance, or a domestic Swiss company concerned about cyber crime, regulatory breaches or internal fraud, our expert team can help.
Our White Collar Crime practice has deep experience in criminal and civil fraud. We can help you to fight specific cases and provide timely advice on how to avoid problems arising from changing corporate governance, regulatory or tax requirements. As experts, we have close contacts with Swiss prosecutors, and can advise you on the changing nature of interpretations and precedents.
We specialise in helping international clients to recover misappropriated funds and assets located in Switzerland, including court orders for the provision of bank records, the search of premises and the freezing of assets – in both directions. We can also advise clients confronted with attachments and/or disclosure orders in multi-jurisdictional criminal investigations.
We work with Swiss and international corporates to advise on all aspects of cyber crime, corruption, bribery and fraud, working with experts from our corporate practice and other business areas where appropriate.
Our aim is always to provide swift insightful advice to help you manage each incident and protect your reputation, whilst achieving the best outcome at every stage.
“From hidden or blocked assets to cyber crime and employee fraud, we are experts at helping our clients to get positive outcomes with minimal reputational damage.”

Christian Oetiker is a 'definite inclusion' for his 'vast experience' and 'comprehensive knowledge' across a broad range of commercial and corporate law. The 'outstanding' Daniele Favalli is often present before domestic and international courts and tribunals. His knowledge of the insurence sector is particularly noteworthy. Thomas Weibel is a 'superb talent' and a 'strong negotiator' in proceedings that include Commercial disputes, recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments, injunctive relief and white-collar crime."
