In addition, Zlatko Janev also joined the company on 1 June 2020. Janev, who was admitted to the bar and notary public’s office in the Canton of Zug, will strengthen the legal and family office services units in his function as Legal Counsel.
Jacob Bollag, the company’s CEO, says: “Wealthy families and entrepreneurs face complex challenges when it comes to safeguarding private and business interests across generations, borders, and jurisdictions. Family office providers with a banking background, in particular, tend to reduce this issue to investment performance and capital preservation alone. We believe that legal, tax, organisational, and administrative aspects can have at least as much impact on the development of wealth.
”Also on behalf of my father, it is a pleasure to welcome Urs Klingelfuss as a Partner. We are particularly pleased to be able to count on his decades of experience in the areas of commercial, foundation, and tax law, especially in an environment in which the regulatory requirements both for our clients and for companies are continually increasing.
”The appointment of Zlatko Janev also reflects our integrated approach. He will focus on advising our family office clients in the areas of corporate, inheritance, and migration law. On behalf of the whole team, I would like to extend my warm welcome to Mr Janev.”
