What are the firm's most significant strengths in your eyes?
Our core credo of personal interaction and contact with and empathy towards our clients is the foundation of our office culture, and is what we, the founders and partners, have always aspired to instill into our lawyers and administrative staff.

What are the main measures taken recently that will lead to the strengthening of the firm in the coming years?
Cultivating the collective aim of bringing together under one umbrella, alongside the law office, a Family Office encompassing and facilitating the handling of matters that relate to clients, including consulting and managing real estate, international tax consulting, wealth management and preservation, managing trusts through foreign trust companies operating solely for our clients, managing international holdings companies in order to protect and manage our clients' international assets, and managing our clients' worldwide assets through a dedicated Swiss, independent, self regulated Zurich based Asset Management Company, serving our clients exclusively.

What are the main challenges facing the firm in the coming years?
To consolidate the range of services provided to our clients in order to protect their assets, preserve and grow them.

What advice would you offer a young lawyer who is starting out?
To devote all his strength, heart and soul to the tasks confronting him, to check closely and to understand the totality of the topic on which he is advising, and to maintain without exception, even on the smallest matter, both personal and professional integrity.

What is important to remember even in difficult times?
Every day has a tomorrow and every crisis comes to an end. The main things are faith, consistency, uncompromising integrity, never overlooking the human element in any client matter, and above all to keep yourself in good health and maintain a happy home life.
