Pestalozzi advised a high net worth individual on Swiss criminal proceedings and mutual assistance proceedings in criminal matters
Pestalozzi represented an HNWI, who has had a leading executive position in a foreign publicly owned company and was also the chairman of a banking group. Pestalozzi operated as leading attorneys in a matter brought against the client accusing him of misappropriation, passive corruption and money laundering. The matter, which is alleged to be worth in region of USD 360 million, has been brought in the context of domestic Swiss criminal proceedings and mutual assistance proceedings in criminal matters. The matter has been made considerably more challenging by the complex political background surrounding the allegations. Another demanding aspect of the matter is the multi-jurisdictional investigations required on our part, spanning Switzerland and several foreign jurisdictions.
