Benoît A Mauron

Benoît specialises in litigation, including civil, criminal and regulatory litigation before all Swiss courts and authorities.

He frequently acts in both domestic and cross-border commercial disputes and fraud litigation, typically dealing with both the civil and criminal litigation streams. An important aspect of this is formulating an efficient litigation strategy to maximise respective benefits, also providing external communication support when needed.

As Benoît’s cases usually include an international component, he is used to coordinating actions and proceedings across various multiple jurisdictions, involving several legal teams.

Benoît also has a keen interest in asset recovery and insolvency matters as well as enforcement proceedings. He regularly domesticates foreign judgments, awards and orders, particularly in cross-border insolvency matters. Where required, he also advises on asset protection strategies before, during and after litigation.
