Curtis opened its Geneva office in 2016 to serve its international clients doing business in Switzerland.
The office focuses on international arbitration, international trade and international tax work. Lawyers in Geneva coordinate closely with the firm’s 17 other offices in the United States, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Central and East Asia.
As an important centre for international trade and arbitral disputes, the Geneva office provides clients with access to market leading groups in both these areas. Clients benefit from Curtis’ top-ranked practice teams and experience in both international arbitration and international trade. These practice groups are consistently ranked as global leaders by Chambers and Legal 500. Curtis’ international arbitration lawyers have also been ranked at the highest levels by Global Arbitration Review and The American Lawyer.
The Geneva office also advises clients on all aspects of international taxation, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and investment management. Lawyers in the tax group work closely with those in the international arbitration team, particularly in disputes where tax issues are at the core of the claims.
Curtis’ Geneva based lawyers advise and represent private companies, family offices, ultra-high net worth individuals, multinational corporations, financial institutions, investment managers and sovereign entities on a broad range of international legal matters. Leading legal directories also recognise the firm’s international tax and investment management capabilities.
Lawyers in Geneva are internationally qualified and have worked in the firm’s New York, Paris and Mexico City offices. Clients benefit from a highly integrated team approach across the firm’s offices and practice groups. The Geneva office is one of six European offices.
