Corporate and contract law
I assist closely held and listed companies in contract and corporate law in every area of their respective life cycle. The drafting and negotiation of operational and strategic contracts are just as much a part of my expertise and passion as advising on company-specific corporate and commercial law and corporate governance.
My advice in contract law also includes the legal support of contracting partners of companies, be they suppliers, customers, investors or financing banks, and their shareholders.
Mergers & Acquisitions
I assist closely held and listed companies in national and cross-border transactions in the areas of M&A, restructuring and reorganisations, joint ventures and strategic partnerships, as well as in various forms of corporate acquisitions and disposals (management buyouts and buy-ins, sale to industrial buyers or to a financial investor).
From structuring, drafting and negotiating contracts to project execution: I support you as part of your project team and provide legal advice on the project, either together with your internal resources or together with external specialists. The legal management of transaction projects is also part of my expertise (cf. Legal Interim Management), whether in your company or externally.
I support your company and financial institutions as well as financial service providers in their respective roles as borrowers, intermediaries, security agents or lenders in financing transactions, including secured and unsecured loans and mezzanine financings. In addition, I advise companies, financial institutions and private equity funds on equity or debt financing relating to acquisitions.
I support companies and investors in the areas of private equity, venture capital and corporate financing in start-up and growth financing matters. I also advise financial investors on investments in Swiss companies and on reorganisations of their portfolio companies or on their sale.
My competences include the preparation and negotiation of the transaction documentation, the drafting and negotiating of shareholder relations and legal advice in the exit.
Employment and compensation
I advise and support senior executives in their entry into or exit from management positions in companies. I support them in the elaboration and negotiation of strategies and the related legal documentation (work and other contracts, regulations, compensation models and programs).
I regularly advise companies on legal issues relating to employment, promotion, reorganization or leaving of senior managers.
