Data protection

As a law firm and notary's office based in Switzerland, we are subject to the federal law on data protection, although we are also bound by professional secrecy as lawyers and notaries. When collecting, processing, disclosing and storing personal data, we comply with both this data protection declaration and the specifications of the applicable data protection regulations, mainly the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (DSG) and its ordinance, as well as the EU General Data Protection Regulation ( GDPR).

With this data protection declaration, we would therefore like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection of personal data via this website, the processing of this personal data and your rights in this regard.

Which data do we process?

We primarily process the personal data that we receive directly from our clients as part of our client relationships. These are of course subject to professional secrecy. There is also the possibility that we receive or collect data indirectly from authorities, courts or other third parties (e.g. counterparties, business and contractual partners of our clients). We also collect certain personal data when you visit our website ( or take it from publicly accessible sources (e.g. Internet, press, land register, debt enforcement or commercial register) where indicated and permitted. This data processing is carried out with a view to analyzing the internet traffic on our website and improving its functionality. When using the website, personal data can also be collected using cookies and Google Analytics.

For what purposes do we process your data?

We use the personal data we collect to conclude and process our mandates with you and business partners. We also process personal data when purchasing the services of our assistants (in particular legal and tax advisors/experts consulted in Germany and abroad) and for dealing with conflicts of interest. The processing of personal data also serves to comply with our legal obligations at home and abroad. If you work for one of our clients or business partners, your personal data may also be affected in this function.

In addition, we process personal data, as far as necessary and permissible, for the further development of our services, offers and website or other communication channels, processing your inquiries, assertion of legal claims and defense in connection with legal disputes and official procedures, guarantees of our operations, especially IT, our website as well as for any transactions under company law and the associated transfers of personal data as well as measures for business management and for compliance with legal and regulatory obligations as well as our internal regulations.

If you have only given us your consent for specific purposes, we will process your personal data within the framework of and based on this consent, unless there is another legal basis and we need one. A given consent can be revoked at any time, but this has no effect on data processing that has already taken place.

In most cases there is no legal obligation for you to provide us with your personal data. However, these data are regularly required for the acceptance and execution of a mandate and its fulfillment. As a rule, however, we will not be able to conduct a client relationship with you without this data. Our website can also not be used or can only be used with restrictions if certain information to ensure data traffic (eg IP address) is not disclosed or certain settings are not activated (eg cookies).

Who do we share your data with?

It is possible that we will also disclose your personal data to third parties as part of our business activities and for the aforementioned purposes, insofar as this is permitted and appears to us to be appropriate. This disclosure is always in accordance with data protection legislation and our professional secrecy. This applies in particular to the following recipients:

  • Domestic and foreign (authorities, official offices or (arbitration) courts;
    Suppliers and auxiliary persons of ours (such as in particular legal and tax advisors at home and abroad) in connection with the mandate that you entrust to us;

  • Our service providers (such as banks, trustees, insurance companies, IT service providers);

  • Third parties to whom we may delegate certain activities (e.g. the translation of certain documents);

  • The tax authorities;

  • The administrative, criminal, judicial or arbitration authorities related to the mandate you entrust to us;

  • Law firms and companies with whom we need to communicate in order to carry out the mandate that you entrust to us.

We may also be required to share data with authorities to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations.

Where is your data processed?

We store your personal data in Switzerland. Taking into account the degree of sensitivity of your data, appropriate technical and organizational security measures must be taken to protect them from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.

A transfer abroad will only take place if the execution of the mandate you have entrusted to us requires such a transfer (e.g. to a law firm based abroad). Incidentally, this transmission only takes place after discussing with you the context in which such a transmission appears necessary to us, and therefore with your consent.

How long do we keep your data?

We store your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations or otherwise for the purposes pursued with the processing, i.e. for the duration of the entire contractual relationship (from the initiation, processing to the end of a mandate) as well as in accordance with the statutory retention and documentation obligations. As soon as your personal data are no longer required for the purposes mentioned in Section 4 above, they will be deleted or made anonymous as far as possible. In principle, shorter retention periods of twelve months or less apply to operational data (e.g. system protocols, logs).


What are your rights?

You have the right:

  • ask for details about the data we process about you;

  • correct your data;

  • to request the deletion of your data (which we may not be able to do under our legal obligations without having to terminate the mandate agreement that binds us);

  • to withdraw your consent in the case of processing operations based on this basis;

  • to contact a judicial authority or the Federal Data Protection Commissioner if you believe that we have not fulfilled our obligations.
