Corporate & Commercial

Providing advice on the foundation, organisation and administration of all corporate structures that are relevant in Switzerland is part of Walder Wyss’s day-to-day business. We advise not only company shareholders and owners but also the companies themselves, ranging from listed corporations to small, family-owned firms.

We help our clients find legal solutions that are both commensurate with their needs and incorporate their market strategies. These solutions include the protection of technology transfer, the distribution of goods and the provision of services.
