Daniel S. Weber

About

Daniel S. Weber mainly works in the areas of banking and financial market law, internal and regulatory investigations, white collar crime, and FinTech. He represents and advises clients in complex regulatory and compliance matters, including money laundering, corruption, and whistleblowing, as well as in investigations by Swiss and foreign regulatory and criminal authorities.

“Before a busy day at the law firm, I like to take my stand-up paddleboard and go for an early morning paddle on the tranquil waters of Lake Pfäffikon, with great views of the Glarus Alps. This helps me sharpen my focus. Focusing on the essentials is also an important part of being an attorney.”

Daniel S. Weber speaks German, English and French.
