Seizure is an extremely effective instrument for debt recovery when there are assets to be confiscated in Switzerland such as real estate, bank accounts or receivables. The possibility of requesting a seizure exists in particular when the debt to be recovered is already subject of a final and enforceable judgment, as well as when the debtor has his domicile abroad, does not have a fixed domicile, or when it can be proved that he intends to avoid his obligations, that he makes his property disappear, flees or prepares his escape.
Seizure generally requires extremely rapid action to prevent assets that could be sequestered in Switzerland from disappearing.
Our Firm has considerable experience and will be able to assist you effectively in this matter.
The arbitration procedure is characterised in particular by its rapidity and confidentiality. It allows disputes to be resolved without resorting to the ordinary courts, whose procedures can be lengthy. The dispute, submitted to a panel of one to three experts, most often involves complex commercial disputes or sports law issues.
Switzerland is a privileged place for arbitration, since it is the seat of many chambers of commerce offering specific services and procedural rules.
Our Firm has special experience with the specificities of arbitral disputes, both as counsel and as arbitrator. Our resources will allow us to assist you in the context of these disputes by proceeding in both French and English.
