Hengeler Mueller advises Credit Suisse with Bär & Karrer on Establishment of Credit Suisse (Schweiz) AG

27. December 2016


A joint team of Bär & Karrer and Hengeler Mueller lawyers advised Credit Suisse on the international aspects of the establishment of Credit Suisse (Schweiz) AG. Effective 20 November 2016, Credit Suisse (Schweiz) AG started operating in Switzerland as a fully owned banking subsidiary of Credit Suisse AG with its own banking license.

With Bär & Karrer as lead counsel, Hengeler Mueller coordinated and streamlined the advice given by law firms from 20 jurisdictions around the globe. The goal of this advice was to ensure an uneventful transfer of the business of Credit Suisse to the new Swiss legal entity without impacting the operations or the various legal entitlements.

The Hengeler Mueller team was led by partners Hartwin Bungert (Corporate, Düsseldorf) and Thomas Paul (Banking Regulatory, Frankfurt). The Bär & Karrer team was led by Eric Stupp and supported by Désirée Schreyer, Martin Peyer and Maude Willener (all Banking & Insurance).
