Companies and TaxesThe success of a company depends to a great deal upon its standing on solid ground. The requirement for such a foundation is legal security on all levels – national and international. This is why the strongest area of our firm's practice is in corporate law.v. FISCHER is by your side and contributes value-adding strategies and solutions in all areas of business and tax law – with experience and relationships which are often decisive. Our consultation begins with the founding or acquisition of a company and reaches to the sale or succession process. We support you by drafting contracts, planning and leading reorganisations (M & A), protecting your intellectual property – and any other services you need. Our know-how encompasses various branches in the areas of industry, trade, banks / stock exchanges, insurance and real estate.Since practically all these transactions have fiscal consequences, we especially focus on tax planning and optimisation.Public AdministrationYour legal relations with the Swiss federation, cantons and municipalities are subject to public law. Finding your way through it sometimes requires the assistance of a navigator. Now and again it can also be necessary to oppose the public administration. With offices in Bern, v. FISCHER is at the very heart of the matter. We have acquired decades of experience through dealing with the relevant authorities and have numerous vital connections at our disposition. We have special expertise in construction and planning law, environmental law, expropriations and public tender law. That is why not only companies and private persons but also the authorities themselves trust v. FISCHER.Liability and InsuranceInsurance plans are meant to create security. Still they do not protect from accidents, illness or other occurrences of fate which can change your life completely. They also do not prevent disputes about responsibility, liability and damage. This concerns you as a private person, an employee or an employer, company or an executive of a company. At v. FISCHER experienced attorneys will help you to find your way through these difficulties. Your interests will be protected during negotiations with social insurance authorities as well as private insurance companies, and include representation in court.

Should a public notification be necessary, our notaries are at your disposal.Conduct of Cases / Collection by means of compulsory executionOne’s own view of one’s rights does not always correspond with that of other people. When unable or unwilling to agree in a dispute, the resolution through a trial is sometimes inevitable. v. FISCHER advises in advance concerning the legal situation and implications for your chances and risks. Should a case seem futile we would advise you in your own interest to abstain from a court procedure. Under different circumstances we will make the best possible preparations and represent you in court – whether for a civil, administrative or criminal claim. We will pursue the case with determination, but also with fairness.You will also find support at v. FISCHER concerning collections by means of compulsory execution and the law of bankruptcy. Only proceedings which are carried out correctly and on time are met with success. Restructuring, financial reconstructions and proceedings before the magistrate in bankruptcy can save companies and jobs. In this important area we will take the necessary actions for you.
