Dr. Laurenz Uhl

Laurenz enjoys thinking in a structured manner. He loves working with our clients to map out their goals, devise a suitable strategy to achieve them, and then to provide hands-on support with implementing it. 

He actively seeks out complex initial situations: these are where he can best turn his experience, built up over years in a leading international law firm, to the benefit of our clients. 

His skills are founded on his education as a Fürsprecher (lawyer admitted to the bar in the canton of Berne, Switzerland), and supplemented by his second qualification as a German lawyer, accordingly, he advises on Swiss and German law. His ability to look beyond the garden fence gives clients significant added value.
