Practice Group Companies and Transactions
Switzerland is extremely popular with entrepreneurs of all kinds. Well-known multinationals such as Google and Adobe are already based in Switzerland. In addition, Switzerland, especially the canton of Zug, has experienced a real start-up boom in recent years. One of the reasons for this is the uncomplicated founding of companies in Switzerland, which can usually be completed within a few weeks. In addition, Switzerland stands for political and economic security, low taxes, and a high quality of life.
To set up a new company in Switzerland, you need a notary and the cantonal commercial register. How long it takes to set up a company depends on the canton in question. Our law firm with its associated notary's office regularly handles company formations. Our experienced experts are at your side during the formation process and will communicate with the authorities and banks on your behalf. When choosing the appropriate legal form, we also succeed in finding the optimal solution tailored to your needs. The founder of the company does not have to be resident in Switzerland; however, it is important that at least one member of the board of directors with sole signatory power has his or her place of residence in Switzerland. This means that a company can also be founded conveniently from abroad.
