In everyday life, conflicts and disputes are frequent. Turning to a lawyer is the assurance of benefiting from personalised legal advice to assert your rights and access the best possible protection in all situations of your personal and professional life.
By turning to a lawyer early, you avoid long and extremely costly procedures.
According to statistics, only about a third of the Swiss population resorts to the services of a lawyer. The formalities are considered complicated and some people fear the high rates of consultations. However, consulting a lawyer from the outset of a dispute or identifying risks makes it possible in many cases to avoid lengthy and costly procedures.
Inform yourself without committing
Consulting a lawyer does not require you to initiate proceedings. A lawyer can simply inform you about a file, a situation or a case.
Confidence and confidentiality
A lawyer will be able to treat your case independently because he has no family or friendship ties with you. This factor is important, because you benefit from a great objectivity on his part. So, the lawyer is able to assess the true risks and opportunities of a situation without being influenced by personal considerations.
What is the difference between a lawyer and a notary?
According to the law, recourse to a notary is essential for the establishment of a certain number of acts, in authentic form, which are characterized by the assistance of the notary (real estate transactions, marriage contracts, inheritance pacts and wills, articles of association of legal entities and ownership by condominium). Consequently, the notary is an indispensable professional because he advises the parties on their legal situation and explains the consequences of their actions.
This does not mean, however, that the recourse to the services of a lawyer is excluded in the aforementioned fields. SwissAttorneysOnline's partner lawyers have a variety of skills and are in a position to advise you on real estate, marriage or inheritance before you have to hire a notary.
