19 November 2013
Private Clients and Estates partner David Wallace Wilson
TEP, MCJ (NYU) was a speaker at STEP Lausanne's first conference: "Switzerland and the new world from a fiduciary perspective" held in Lausanne.
David lectured on "Swiss substantive trust law – is it needed?" as Switzerland stands out, among the top 10 international financial centers, as the only country that does not have its own internal trust law.
David also participated to the final roundtable debate "Pro's and Con's of Adopting a Swiss substantive Trust Law". Moderated by STEP Lausanne's chairman, the panel included banking professor Luc Thévenoz (University of Geneva), comparative law professor Maurizio Lupoi (University of Genoa), tax professor Robert Danon (University of Lausanne), Michel Dérobert (secretary General of the Association des Banques Privées Suisses), Patrick O’Hagan (executive director of UBS AG) and David Wallace Wilson.
