Law Office of C. Durrer, PLLC




How an experienced business law attorney Can Help You Succeed:


Contracts play a vital role in business as well as generally in society. Acting as your business contract lawyer, I prepare, review and negotiate many types of agreements such as license agreements, services agreements (incl. SaaS, SLA), joint development agreements, supply & distribution agreements, talent and other marketing agreements, research & clinical agreements, leases, rental agreements, employment and separation agreements, non-disclosure agreements, materials transfer agreements and art commission agreements.


Many small and medium-sized businesses do not have in-house counsel but may still need legal advice. I provide general counsel support to such businesses. My advice pertains to agreements, intellectual property, marketing/advertising law, compliance, company policies, legal processes and training.

SETTING UP companies

The establishment of a legal structure for a business or startup often has many advantages such as a separate legal identity, the limitation of liability and potentially increased credibility and prestige. I provide advice and help set up companies. I also prepare, review and negotiate related agreements such as operating agreements and shareholder agreements.


A transaction usually represents a key business milestone. I lead technology transactions such as licensing projects (which sometimes include an equity component). I also partner with other attorneys on M&A transactions such as stock/unit purchases and asset sales. 


The US offers the largest consumer market in the world. An expansion into the US is therefore a logical next step for many Swiss / European entrepreneurs and start-ups. As your business law attorney, I provide general legal advice in collaboration with other attorneys and subject matter experts, help set up the appropriate structure and prepare, review and negotiate agreements in the context of such an expansion project. As Swiss lawyer in New York City, I partner with Swiss businesses to support their development and market entry projects.

processes & training

Policies and processes in an organization are important since they help provide clarity and alignment among stakeholders. I assist clients with the establishment of company policies, legal processes and training programs.
