Not all sectors of the economy are regulated in the same way in Switzerland. In highly regulated sectors, such as the financial industry, the agricultural sector, the food and restaurant industries or the medical technology sector, it is crucial to be aware of the relevant regulatory requirements before establishing a company. Failure to obtain the necessary information may lead to a situation in which your business activity has no official approval, which in the worst case can result in the liquidation of your business by the government.
Regulatory issues are complex and addressing them requires specialised knowledge of the regulations of the sector in which a new company plans to operate. As a large law firm, we have the specialised knowledge needed to address the relevant issues in all business sectors subject to governmental regulation.
