Switzerland > Private client

Kellerhals Carrard covers a broad range of private client matters, such as wills, estate and tax planning, family law, structuring of private investments, inheritance disputes, foundations and trusts. The team was enhanced by the arrival of Ingrid Iselin, who joined the Geneva office alongside Nicolas Hoffmann and Rémi Sacerdote from Python in early 2019. Iselin leads the practice together with Annette Spycher in Bern, who is well versed in contentious matters. Peter Schatz and Giovanni Stucchi are key contacts in the Lugano office.
