Pension Funds:
As one of only a few commercial law firms in Switzerland, the firm offers targeted comprehensive legal advice for pension funds. The core of the know-how was originally the official administration of pension institutions on behalf of Cantonal supervisory authorities. Today the team still regularly handles such mandates. In doing this, the team values the direct contact with the supervisory authorities and profit from valuable experience gained in assisting pension funds in critical situations. Knowledge in the area of company social welfare benefits is not only relevant for pension funds but also exactly as important for employers. This begins with an adequate benefits solution (own pension plans, collective or joint institutions, full insurance versus sharing in decision-making for asset investments). The issue of personnel benefits is especially important however also in national or international restructurings.
