LPPV avocats

LPPV avocats combine years of experience, knowledge, expertise and the strenght of a large network to defend and represent the best interests of our clients. We provide individualized, practical legal advice and project management services to overcome our clients legal challenges and meet their needs.

Activités

The members of LPPV avocats are devoted to the missions they are entrusted with, in particular in the following areas:

Valeurs

We conceive our firm primarily as an association bringing together the skills of each of its members. We share the same values, which are the driving force of our practice.

Integrity

We attach particular importance to the integrity of our practice and of any of our activities.

Tenacity and strictness

Our goal is to defend vigorously and with conviction our clients’ interests. We are uneasily satisfied but contribute all our efforts to become so.

Solution-oriented

Beyond highlighting to our clients the legal risks, we advise them on clear and constructive solutions.

Listening

Understanding the challenges and potentialities of each case is key, as is being open-minded to discussion and to less obvious options and alternatives.

Creativity

Thinking out of the box matters to us, as well as remaining clear and communicating clearly.

Passion

We are passionate about our profession and wish to understand and to follow the activities of each of our clients.

Mandants

Our clients’ trust reflects in our eyes our trust in them.  “We are your counsel”: this sentence means for us the core of a strong, individual and unique relationship, extending beyond business. The choice of a counsel or attorney is not the choice of a service provider, but the choice of a relationship. You entrust us with your interests – We entrust you with our reputation.

Honoraires

We work on a time-spent basis. We apply fees while taking into account our skills and a flexible costs’ structure. We wish to be as transparent as possible on our indemnifications. We are aware of the limits to bill on a time-spend basis in specific matters or mandates and, putting our clients’ interests at the core of our concerns, we offer alternative billing solutions.

Avocats

The law firm is born out of the association of four attorneys-at-law benefiting from a wide-range experience in their areas of activities. Trained within the largest Swiss law firms and benefitting from solid education, in Switzerland and abroad, the four partners offer their services within an independent law firm, with connections in Switzerland and abroad.
