Representatives within the meaning of Art. 27 GDPR

The new EU Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been applicable since 25 May 2018 and may also apply to private individuals and companies domiciled in Switzerland. This is the case, for example, if goods and services are offered to data subjects in the EU. One of the consequences of this far-reaching scope of the GDPR is that private individuals and enterprises not established in the EU may have to appoint a representative in the EU.

Please contact us for further information. We will be pleased to provide you with appropriate contacts for representatives within the meaning of the GDPR.

Amendments to Swiss Family Law as of the 1st of January 2017

Child Maintenance

The new article 276a of the Swiss Civil Code states a principle according to which the obligation to maintain one’s minor child takes priority over other family law obligations. This is beneficial for the parent who has day-to-day care and control of the child. Independent of their former marital status in case of a separation that parent will get a compensation for the loss of income. This compensation will be part of the child maintenance. It is now up to the courts, to specify the statute and establish a method to calculate and evaluate the amounts of the compensation.


Pension Settlements

The decisive moment regarding the splitting and balancing of the pension funds (BVG-funds) between the spouses is the date the filing for divorce becomes pending. No longer – as it used to be – the date when the court’s ruling on the divorce becomes legally binding. This provides more fairness, because under the former legal framework a party could try to attain a financial advantage by delaying the proceeding.
