I was admitted to the bar in 1998 and have worked for several renowned law firms in Zurich and at last as Head Legal & Compliance at SIX Payment Services.
I have studied law at the University of Zurich and University of Essex. My PhD thesis with which I was promoted Dr. iur. in 2000 was about The Swiss Sports Cooperation. Further, I hold additional diplomas such as a Postgraduate Diploma in EU Competition Law of the University of London and a Diploma of Advanced Studies of the University of St. Gallen (Management for the Legal Profession).
Inheritance law is full of legal pitfalls. For instance, drafting an enforceable last will is by far not as easy as it might seem at first sight. Even more complicated it gets if the last will is to be combined with a matrimonial agreement. Further, in case of disputes related to the distribution of the assets the heirs often have to get the advice of a specialised legal expert.
Lease law is very difficult to understand in detail for non-lawyers, eg in case of incomprehensible calculations of accessory charges, increase of the rent or regarding the question who might be an acceptable successor as lessee in case of an extraordinary termination of the lease contract. Being advised by a legal specialist supports you in not making any mistakes or even missing deadlines.

Do you have problems with the management of the school of your kids? Is your child handicapped and not allowed to the ordinary school or have you not passed a final exam because the teacher has not corrected your work in a fair manner? In such cases, legal support is often advisable. As deadlines to file an appeal are very short it is important to act immediately.
Has your labour contract been terminated unexpectedly, is your letter of recommendation not as it should be, do you not get your salary payments during vacation, are you treated unfairly by colleagues or do you have another problem at work? It certainly helps to address problems early enough and not to wait until the situation escalates. Therefore, having recourse to a legal expert is advisable already at an early stage.
