Consultation and negotiating skills often hinder court proceedings. Where this is unavoidable, we represent your interests with commitment, tenacity and professional expertise before the civil and criminal courts and before administrative authorities.

We are experienced in the representation of persons accused in criminal proceedings with regard to all areas of crime (including criminal law and tax criminal law). Being on call for the St. Gallen Lawyer's Association, we are already deployed whenever someone is remanded in custody. This allows us to guarantee an effective criminal defence at an early stage.

As a road user, you are exposed to a wide range of legal risks. We will represent you before the authorities and courts in matters relating to driver's licence suspensions or other administrative measures, punishable sanctions or the settlement of claims as a result of an accident.
Contracts are always bespoke, in consideration of the individual needs and the specific individual case. Good contracts prevent conflicts or at least facilitate a solution. We are happy to assist you in drafting and enforcing contracts (e.g. sales contracts, shareholder and partnership agreements, license agreements, employment contracts or public-law contracts).
