Nicolas Mosimann's practice focuses on technology and intellectual property law, M&A, corporate law and commercial law. He advises both Swiss and international companies and institutions on transactions (outsourcing, acquisitions, joint ventures, financing rounds) and technology projects, research and cooperation agreements, commercial contracts and data protection. In addition to which, Nicolas specializes in advising and representing software providers and customers (from development to protection and licensing, including SaaS and open source software). Moreover, as a founding member of the Startup Desk of Kellerhals Carrard, Nicolas knows the needs of founders and their companies in the seed and growth phases. He is as dedicated to his clients in a transactional capacity as he is in his role as a litigator.
