At last, we fully understand the strong connection between employment law and social insurance.

Our team, which includes a certified expert in social security, has in-depth knowledge and understanding of the legislation related to social security and pension funds.

We advise our clients on every aspect of social security, including international issues, as well as on implementing, restructuring, merging and liquidating pension funds.

In addition, our team has vast practical knowledge and experience in handling immigration matters.

As part of our immigration practice, we regularly advise our clients on all aspects of taking up residency in Switzerland, applying for work permits (with or without professional activity), authorizations (short-term, residence and cross-border work permits) and visas, as well as announcing short-term activities.

Our team works closely with the firm’s paralegals to ensure that any immigration problem encountered by our clients during the authorization process is addressed efficiently.

In addition, we keep our clients informed of the latest legislative developments that may affect their status in Switzerland as well as their activities.
