Re: Switzerland attorney

Perhaps you didnt understand my question so let me explain. We use 4 lawyers in Switzerland because Swiss lawyers refuse to travel. So I use a French speaking lawyer in Genf, a French speaking lawyer in Lausanne, A German speaking lawyer in Zurich, and a German speaking lawyer in Vaduz..... They are not interchangeable. They each choose to do business is their native tongue. I cant get the Zurich lawyer to go to Vaduz, let alone a French speaking Canton.

So I shall ask again, what language and in what city?

Re: Switzerland attorney

Thank you for explaining. The company and principal officers are located in Thalwil-Zurich, Switzerland and the Banks involved are EFG, Centrum and Suedtirol, all of which are headquartered or have branches in Zurich as well.

A pure contigency fee arrangement ("pactum de quota litis") is not legal in Switzerland. You can, however, arrange for somewhat reduced rates and an "uplift" if the case is won ("pactum de palmario").

You might have to add that Vaduz is not in Switzerland and a Swiss qualified lawyer is not permitted to practice in Vaduz... Also there are benefits of having a "local" lawyer appearing before "local" courts...
