Career

I am a qualified Swiss attorney admitted to the Bar of Zurich. I have also been admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales and am qualified to practice law in The Bahamas. I am also a member of STEP. I have worked around the world in Switzerland, Australia and The Bahamas. My work has an international element with clients in The Bahamas, South America, North America and Europe. I have managed complex multi-jurisdictional liquidations for years, working closely with attorneys on different continents. I also specialize in international tax and exchange of information issues, including FATCA and CRS. Since August 2020 I have been working remotely from Switzerland, supporting my clients in the same way as before without there being any difference in continuity or quality.
