Private Clients

Private Client has historically always been at the core of our firm’s services and attention since the firm’s early days in 1882. We are proud to assist families over generations and to continuously acquire the trust of new clients, by adapting to their evolving needs and expectations as well as to the changing cross-border environment.

Our specialized and intergenerational Private Client team provides complete legal and tax advice to individuals and their families in Switzerland and around the world on all aspects relevant to their personal and financial affairs.

The wide range of services offered by MLL Legal includes estate planning and inheritance litigation, family law advise and matrimonial agreements, as well as divorces most often with a very strong international component. We also support and assist our clients in their domiciliation in Switzerland in particular the tax and immigration aspects and for the acquisition of real estate.

We also assist entrepreneurs and family offices in the transfer of family businesses as well as in all corporate and contractual issues, dispute resolution and complex asset structuring and restructuring.

We advise our clients in art law and in their philanthropic ventures (creation, regulatory and administrative aspects). Sitting on the board of several foundations and charitable associations in Switzerland, we have an extended and comprehensive knowledge of this sector.

Our clients appreciate our pragmatic, creative and solution-oriented advice. Beyond our several working languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, Greek, Arabic and Swedish), our multicultural mindset and empathic approach allows us to understand the issues of our clients and establish long term relations based on ongoing and mutual trust and respect.

Thanks to our large network of international private client lawyers, we efficiently and successfully collaborate with skilled advisors worldwide to offer the best sophisticated services to our Private Client with the right degree or emotional intelligence to ensure the advises provided is not just a legal technical answer.

“MLL Legal is a full-service law firm that is respected for its art and cultural property work, with one source stating: “They have a very strong and thorough knowledge of the art world.” The team advises art collectors, dealers, galleries, foundations and other institutions on contentious and advisory matters”​
