Who's Who Legal Switzerland - Private Client

Philippe Pulfer heads the Geneva private client practice of Walder Wyss. He specialises in wealth structuring and estate planning with an international focus. He also acts in complex, often multi-jurisdictional, succession and trust disputes. With more than 15 years of experience in his field, both in Geneva and London, he has developed a reputation as a leading expert advising individuals and families, trustees, banks, and lawyers from other jurisdictions, in particular UK solicitors. His combined practice in estate planning and litigation enables him to offer effective advice to private clients and trustees who are involved in disputes and/or potential disputes. He also advises charities and charity donors in all areas of philanthropy.

Over the past couple of years Philippe has been constantly ranked as a leading lawyer by all major legal directories, including Chambers Global and Chambers Europe (which place him in the top tier), The Legal 500, Who's Who Legal and Citywealth. In 2012, he was included in Legal Week’s “Top 100 Global Trusts & Private Client Elite”, a list singling out 100 leading individuals from Europe, the Americas and Asia on a peer-review basis.

Philippe is a member of the STEP Worldwide Council and a committee member of STEP Geneva. He holds a law degree from the University of Geneva and was admitted to the Bar in 1995.
