Banking and finance law

Forty-Four Avocats has extensive experience in advising Swiss and foreign banks, independent asset managers and other financial institutions. One of our partners gained a large part of his experience in the legal departments of leading banks.

We assist you in obtaining the necessary authorizations for your project and ensure that your activity complies with the applicable Swiss and international regulations, particularly in the field of financial services (FinSA, FinIA, MiFID) and anti-money laundering (LBA).

We advise you on the drafting or verification of contracts relating to everyday banking and financial transactions.

Forty-Four Avocats is also at your disposal if you are in dispute with a financial institution. This can be a matter of an asset management or investment advisory contract whose clauses have not been fulfilled, a problem encountered in the execution of a subscription in a private placement, in the faulty execution of a payment instruction or of a documentary credit, or disputes concerning a loan.
