The firm's Middle East & Turkey desk advises Swiss businesses and expatriates with projects in the region as well as local businesses and high net worth individual investing abroad. It also leads major international commercial arbitrations and litigation matters, especially in respect of oil and gas and construction project disputes.
Schellenberg Wittmer has been involved in projects in the Middle East & Turkey since the early 80s, especially in the GCC countries, and has developed an extensive network in the region. For decades, we have advised Swiss businesses and expats in connection with their activity in the region.
We assist local companies, especially family owned enterprises, with structuring their investments abroad and with corporate governance matters, helping them to adapt to the risks and to seize
the opportunities of the geopolitical changes in the region. We have a strong experience in family business succession planning.
High net worth individuals from the region turn also to us for a wide array of projects in respect of their assets abroad, ranging from banking, real estate, yacht and aircraft finance or art and philanthropy. We are also regularly called to advise on case related to family governance and relocation.
Our leading international litigation and arbitration teams based in Switzerland and Singapore offer outstanding strategic advice and advocacy for international commercial, investment and sports disputes. With our experience and understanding of the market, we manage to bridge cultural gaps and achieve the expected results be it through negotiation, mediation, adjudication or arbitration proceedings.
