He represents clients in commercial, real estate and certain private clients litigation and arbitration proceedings. Before joining Meyerlustenberger Lachenal, he worked for seven years with two different district courts in the Canton of Zurich, two of which as a district and rental court judge.

International inheritance matters and execution of wills are his main areas of work for private clients.
