Practice areas

Based in Geneva but borderless in its reach, Monfrini Bitton Klein is a conflict-free litigation boutique active on all aspects of business crime, from asset recovery, to business crime defense and investigations, and to offshore litigation. 

To that end, we have developed an international network of asset recovery and business crime lawyers, forensic analysts, insolvency practitioners, investigators and litigation funders present in about 100 countries. We are notably Switzerland’s representatives of ICC FraudNet, the leading global network of fraud and asset recovery lawyers.

Asset Recovery

We are internationally renowned for our representation of defrauded governments, companies, individuals and bankruptcy estates before civil, criminal and bankruptcy courts to recover assets and to obtain damages from facilitators. We trace assets concealed in Switzerland or abroad for claimants in commercial, matrimonial and probate disputes.

Business Crime & Investigations

We represent plaintiffs and defendants in domestic and international white-collar crime proceedings before criminal, administrative and international judicial assistance authorities. We advise clients in cross-border anti-corruption investigations.

E-Reputation Defense

We are pioneers in the emerging area of e-reputation defense. This evolving practice is the most effective response to the unchecked proliferation of personal data via the Internet, information that is susceptible to error and manipulation in the service of political or private agendas.  

Offshore Litigation

We enforce foreign judgments, arbitral awards and insolvency decisions, freeze assets and obtain evidence in support of proceedings abroad.

Legal Advice

We advise Swiss and foreign clients on all aspects of their international and domestic business transactions.

Our lawyers can assist our clients in French, English, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.
