Hi, my name is Michel. I started my career as a corporate lawyer in Bern, Switzerland. In 2015, I moved to California to study U.S. law and to work with Silicon Valley startups. I returned to Switzerland in 2016 and founded EMBARK.LAW. Now I can dedicate my time fully to my favorite subject area, startup law.
Why startups? Because I love to support you while you create something new. I very much enjoy finding new and unique solutions to tricky challenges and I'm interested in new technologies and innovative ideas. I know how it is to start a business as I have done so myself with EMBARK.LAW. I love the responsibilities and the freedom that come with having your own business. I am therefore thrilled to help you put your plans into action. Let's change the world together!
In my career as a lawyer, I have counseled businesses in all stages of development across multiple industries such as FinTech, IT, clean energy, and machine industries. I am fluent in English, (Swiss) German, French and Hungarian.
I am passionate about tech, finance, environmental sustainability, surfing, emotional intelligence, and fantasy books. Before becoming a startup lawyer, I was a professional athlete, playing volleyball and beach volleyball at a national level.
