Ways out of difficult situations

I advise and represent individuals and companies preferably in the areas of white-collar crime and criminal law compliance. I act as a criminal defense attorney as well as a private plaintiff's representative before all criminal prosecution authorities and courts in German-speaking Switzerland.

Based on my professional experience since 1996, I work out targeted ways out of difficult situations - with personal commitment, the routine from countless court appearances and surefootedness in difficult terrain.

I offer my clients access to a proven national and international network of specialized service providers and advise in German, English, Italian, French and Russian.

Compliance and Integrity

I also offer companies long-standing, cross-border expertise in compliance and integrity - among other things due to several years of work as a compliance monitor for the US DOJ and various advisory and investigation activities for companies of different sizes and industries - from SMEs to large multinational corporations, from retailers to factory suppliers.
