The Office

Our firm was founded in 1943.

Today we provide services of public notaries, attorney-at-law and mediation.

Our activity consists essentially in planning, counselling, drafting of agreements, court representation and alternative dispute resolution in almost all areas of law, with a particular emphasis in the fields of real property, matrimonial, inheritance and contract law.

We are committed to providing our clients with solutions that are tailored to their particular case, and which reconcile human realities with technical and practical contingencies.

Fields of activity

As Public Notaries

The system in force in the Canton of Valais is the one of Latin notaries.

A notary is an independent public officer who is authorised to draw up authentic acts, primarily in the following fields:

  • Real estate law (purchase, sale, preemptive rights, constitution of mortgages etc.)
  • Matrimonial law (pre-marital contracts)
  • Inheritance law/successions (will, inheritance pacts, estate settlement agreements)
  • Company law/corporate (constitution, modification of statutes, dissolution etc.)

A notary also advises his clients with regard to all areas related to these operations (e.g. tax law, law upon acquisition of real property by foreigners etc.).

As Attorneys

We provide counsel services and legal representation before the Courts, primarily in the following domains:

  • Matrimonial and family law
  • Inheritance law
  • Contract law
  • Civil liability
  • Criminal law
  • Company law / corporate
  • Construction law
  • Immigration law
  • Litigation and bankruptcy
  • Insurance law

As Mediators

We provide mediation services focusing on the following areas:

  • commercial mediation;
  • real estate and construction;
  • inheritance mediation (planning and/or inheritance distribution);
  • family mediation.

The mediator works from a position of neutrality, helping the parties to respectfully express their respective needs and interests and build amicable agreements to resolve their differences.
