We guide you to Switzerland

Switzerland offers an excellent quality of life, internationally renowned schools, a stable legal and political environment, and it is very well connected internationally thanks to several airports. Unlike physical entry, the legal path to Switzerland is often not as simple. We can support you with this.

We provide one-stop advice on the most important aspects when moving to Switzerland:

Obtaining a residence permit
Acquisition of real estate

Switzerland has acquisition restrictions for foreigners (Lex Koller). Thanks to our law firm’s many years of experience in real estate transactions, we are the ideal contact for this. You will also benefit from our network when looking for your new home.

The best school for your children

Whether it is one of the renowned private schools in Switzerland or the excellent public education system: we can support you in making your choice according to your family’s needs.

Tax planning (incl. lump sum taxation)

Cantonal differences, the type of taxation and the structure of your assets have a major impact on your tax burden. The right planning can thus be very effective. We would be happy to share our expertise with you. Do you already have a tax team in your country of origin? We would be happy to work with them in order to achieve the optimum result for you.

Relocating impacts your situation regarding inheritance and matrimonial property regime

When you move to Switzerland, the legal framework changes, which can have a significant impact on estate planning. Inheritance and matrimonial property law, in particular with international aspects, are among the core competencies of our law firm. We advise you comprehensively and take into account all available instruments, be it wills, testaments, inheritance contracts, foundations or trusts.

Insurance, especially compulsory insurances

Residence in Switzerland requires, among other things, signing up for health insurance. In addition, social security contributions need to be paid. Here too, we can assist you so that you can fully concentrate on the things that are important to you.
