Lawyer – Pascale Cano has extensive experience in patrimonial family law and international private law; after twelve years of practice in a notarial office in Paris, she joined a prominent single-Family Office to devote herself for twelve years to assisting many family members – established in various jurisdictions and with increasing geographic mobility – on family, marital and patrimonial-related legal and tax issues, in both domestic and cross-border contexts.

Pascale Cano joined FBT in January 2018 as Head of its patrimonial family law group. In close synergy with our Geneva office, she advises individuals on patrimonial family law matters, with a particular focus on cross-border issues. She is particularly involved in ways and means for structuring and holding assets, as well as estate planning, through the recommendation of holding and transmission schemes (options and evolution of matrimonial regime, union/disunion, gifts inter vivos and wills, holding structures, philanthropic approaches).
