International Legal Assistance and Criminal Law

The firm's mutual legal assistance team advises institutional and private clients, as well as several foreign states, in mutual legal assistance matters and related areas. These include international police cooperation, Interpol notices, information exchange between financial regulatory authorities, enforcement of embargos and international assistance in civil matters.

Our expertise covers issues that arise in these matters, such as banking and professional secrecy, transmission of documents, freezing of assets and extradition.

We assist and represent our clients in compliance issues as well as in proceedings concerning white-collar crime, money laundering, stock exchange regulations and disclosure requirements.

We have acted as consultants for foreign lawmakers with respect to mutual assistance matters, and several of our clients' cases have set milestones in Swiss case law on international cooperation.
