What I find fascinating in insurance and financial services law, is to seek the best solution for my clients, which also stands up to scrutiny by the regulator.

Karin Furrer advises insurers and market participants in the area of collective investment schemes on regulatory and legal matters. Her practice also focuses on commercial and corporate law, where she advises her clients on a broad range of matters including general contract law and establishment or re-organization of companies (including associations and foundations).

Her clients benefit from her experience of having worked at the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority, FINMA.

I wanted to send a personal thank you for Karin’s hard work – this deal has the tightest deadlines I’ve had to work to for some years and Karin has been professional, helpful and polite at each stage.
