Firm's library

The canton of Valais is based on tradition and its inhabitants tend to show unfailing loyalty to one sole legal representative. However, in 1990, four prominent lawyers of Sion saw the opportunity of better serving their clients’ needs by combining their different fields of expertise. They went on to create a firm of advocates and notaries, now the Etude du Ritz. 

Our aim is to provide advice to clients on most of their legal and business affairs. We offer in-depth knowledge of civil, criminal and administrative procedures, drafting and analytical skills and an acute sense of perspective and strategy. We endeavour to stay one step ahead by constantly challenging ourselves to bring new and original ways of thinking to the most complex legal challenges our clients face. 

As general practice lawyers, we follow developments in all areas of the law and offer expertise in corporate and commercial law, tax law, administrative law, corporate crime law, property, planning and construction law, inheritance and matrimonial law as well as labour law and sports law.

As of September 2015, we also provide English law advice, having been joined by a former partner of a London “magic circle” firm.

We deeply value the relationships we build with our clients and we know that they value our warm, friendly yet professional approach.
