Charles Russell Speechlys has two offices in Switzerland, covering both the German and French speaking business and wealth management communities in one of the world's premier centres for private wealth management.
From our Zurich office, we advise individuals, family offices, fiduciaries and financial institutions using Switzerland as a wealth management centre. We focus on English law, private international law, UK and cross border taxation. A particular strength is that we are able to offer wealthy individuals and family offices an integrated private client and commercial service to assist in the international structuring and protection of their wealth.
Swiss private banking institutions benefit from our insight into the structuring, legal and tax aspects of the products and services they offer into the UK and wider EU market as well as the regulatory controls governing the establishment, structure and conduct of day to day business activities.
As a significant adviser to the international wealth management and financial services communities, we offer a unique dimension to clients and intermediaries. We are one of the few law firms able to provide integrated tax, regulatory, funds and commercial advice with a full private client offering across Europe's leading centres for financial services and wealth management - London, Luxembourg, Paris and Switzerland.
