UBS Switzerland AG – Lawyers, notaries and fiduciaries


The financial boutique for attorneys


Attorneys often maintain account relationships with a bank on three levels: as private clients, as law firms, or as representatives of their clients. However, this does not mean that they have to deal with three different relationship managers at the bank. UBS’s LNF desks offer a “single point of entry” for all their needs.


Why do we support ELSA? 


In addition to our client consultancy expertise, we strive to establish lifelong partnerships with our clients. Our strategic partnership with ELSA Switzerland is a further step underlining these values and a worthwhile investment in your future career. We want to establish early on the basis for lifelong collaboration.


UBS is happy to offer a special banking package for students (UBS Campus) which grants you free access to all daily banking services.
