PAWZ: Swiss Matrimonial Property as Applied to Resident Foreigners

Married expats residing in Switzerland are often unaware that their Swiss residence may have an impact on their matrimonial property, which can lead to unexpected financial consequences in the event of divorce or death.

The Private Clients team of Meyerlustenberger Lachenal Ltd (MLL), one of the largest and most reputable international law firms in Switzerland, regularly advises international clients regarding complex cross-border matrimonial property matters and will share its expertise in a presentation.

The presentation aims to outline the laws which will determine the matrimonial property of expats relocating to Switzerland and will also explain the impact of foreign and/or Swiss pre-/post-nuptial agreements on asset distributions between the spouses in the event of divorce or death.

Please join this relevant and interactive event.

You're only 88 once...

The Ben Franklin Circle

BenFranklinCircleClose to 300 years ago, Benjamin Franklin started what he called a “club for mutual improvement.” With his peers, they discussed 13 core virtues and explored how to better incorporate them in their lives. The Ben Franklin Circle is a modern take on this idea. We meet monthly to discuss a virtue and how we can apply them to improve our lives. In February's circle, we will be discussing the virtue of "Industry." 

"Lose no time. Be always employed in something useful. Cut off all unnecessary actions.”

Join us for a fun, thought provoking discussion.

When: Thursday, February 7
Time: 18.00 – 20.00 
Deadline: February 5
Cancel: February 6
