Your bank is facing FINMA enforcement proceedings or wants to return its banking licence? Are you threatened with enforcement proceedings? We represent you with due diligence in difficult situations with FINMA, but, if necessary, also against FINMA before the Federal Administrative Court and the Federal Supreme Court.

We will also assist your institution with the voluntary release from FINMA supervision. Since we do not accept FINMA investigation mandates, we can act freely. We also specialise in banks in distress.

A wide range of banks, securities dealers, asset managers, fund managers, insurance companies, pension funds, leasing companies and other financial service providers benefit from our advice on contractual and regulatory matters, including FINSA & FINIA, and on obtaining FINMA licences.

Due to our experience in financial services law, we regularly conduct litigation, also for clients of banks.
