Ioannis Athanasopoulos Anwalt Zürich Wortschaftlichkeitsverfahren Arzt Verfügung Verwaltung Anfechten
As a lawyer, I have knowledge of both private and public law and their points of contact.
I prefer to practice:
  • Health Law

  • Education Law / School Law

  • Administrative Law

  • Trademark Law

  • Contract Law

Thanks to my professional background so far, I am well connected both nationally and internationally. If required, I would be delighted to use this network for you. My lean office structures help me to concentrate completely on your needs. I am pragmatic, solution-oriented and I also like to present creative approaches to you. 
In 2020, 2021 and 2022 my law firm was awarded as top law firm in the rating of the Swiss business magazine "Bilanz" and "Le Temps".
At the 2020 Winter Meeting of the Zurich Bar Association, I was elected to the Board of Directors of the Zurich Bar Association and I am in charge of the Legislation and Practice Department.

It is important for me to be able to provide you with personal and comprehensive support - we also can, as it is usual for SMEs and start-ups, jointly agree a monthly fee model or, for certain types of work, a flat-rate fee. 

As a former member of the local fire brigade, I am used to stay calm in stressful situations and to use the limited but available time to analyse options and choose the best one for you.
