Contract law

The Swiss Contract Law

Claims between legal entities usually come about by contractual means, i.e. on the basis of an agreement in the form of the conclusion of a contract. Agreements are not always documented in writing, but this does not alter their binding nature.

Swiss contract law leaves the parties a great deal of scope in structuring their agreements. They are free to agree on mutual rights and obligations within the framework of mandatory law and to define the modalities of contract performance. Especially against the background of this room for maneuver, it is important that the necessary care is already taken when drafting the contract in order to avoid later disputes.

We review and draft contracts of all levels of complexity for you and work with you to ensure that the negotiated contract takes your interests into account and is enforceable. If a dispute arises with your contractual partner, we will assert your interests in contentious proceedings before the courts.
