The Firm was founded in 1967 and has always been focused more on the
needs of particular client categories, such as international
corporations or high net worth individuals, in relation to banking,
brokerage or commercial activities, than on particular segments of the
law. The necessary legal expertise is drawn either from our own
resources in regulatory, contractual, immigration, trust and estate,
litigation or arbitration matters or from selected outside experts, as
necessary. Most issues handled have a strong international connotation.
All partners have practiced law outside Switzerland.
The Moscow office,
opened in 1992, is also headed by a Swiss partner. It is operated as a
branch office of the Fribourg (Switzerland) registered limited company
Secretan Troyanov SA, so as to comply with local Russian regulations.
It provides advice on Russian, Swiss or international law issues to
Russian and foreign clients.
