I will provide you with efficient, comprehensive legal support that is both prudent and pragmatic:

  • Contract drafting and legal guidance on day-to-day business operations

  • Settlement negotiations, mediation and conflict management

I am also available to assist with criminal matters, and in various areas related to the Civil Code (such as inheritance law) and public law.

Über mich

about me

Since 2015 I have worked as a lawyer, initially for a major corporate law firm in Zurich and then in private practice, starting in 2021.

I am registered with the attorneys' registry of the Canton of Zurich and admitted to all Swiss courts. I am member of the Zurich Bar Association ZAV and of the Swiss Bar Association SAV.

Since 2015 I have also regularly appeared in academic publications as editor, author or

I generally bill by the hour, with the hourly rate based on the complexity of the case, the amount at issue and the degree of responsibility involved.

Other compensation models can also be agreed upon, such as a flat fee or – if allowed by law – a contingency fee based on the amount awarded in the case. SMEs and associations may also find the attractively-priced external legal services I offer to be beneficial.

If you can’t afford a trial, you can ask for free legal aid. Another option is third-party funding of legal proceedings.

I would be happy to meet with you for an initial consultation – free of charge and without obligation – to advise you on the various options for compensation and financing.


I have also regularly appeared in academic publications as editor, author or co author since 2015.
