MLL successfully represented a private bank in court proceedings (up to the Swiss Federal Tribunal) aiming at the enforcement of a mortgage


Since early 2017, MLL has been representing a private bank in debt enforcement and related court proceedings regarding the enforcement of a mortgage.

After the court of first instance had dismissed the bank’s claim, the bank won on appeal before the Appellate Court of the Canton of Berne. With its decision of 2 April 2020, the Swiss Federal Tribunal upheld this decision and accordingly dismissed the counterparty’s appeal. Case reference: 5A_136/2020.
