Dr. iur. Counsel

Jürg Peyer

  • Profile


    What has humour got to do with commercial law and SchKG (Swiss bankruptcy law)? And why should a commercial lawyer above all describe this quality as one of his strong-points?

    Jürg Peyer knows that a healthy portion of humour provides the necessary space, so that persistence in reaching a solution is not converted to counter-productive obstinacy.

    He therefore describes himself as a creative tactician, who can also keep a cool head even in seemingly hopeless situations and resolve tensions with humour.

    He analyzes conflict situations precisely, in order to prepare initial possible concepts before following the most promising routes and arriving at a soulution to the problem. And when it is deemed necessary to turn the selected concept on its head, he does this without any false obstinacy – and with a smile on his face.
