Our law firm
OA Legal is a Geneva based law firm driven by an entrepreneurial spirit providing tailor-made legal services. We are committed to provide
the highest level of legal services while having a positive social impact.
One Firm. One vision.
As businesses undergo significant digital transformation, the legal industry needs to evolve and digitise to connect to its clients.
Clients expect lawyers prepared to lead, differentiate and adapt in a constantly evolving world. We also recognise that our clients face constant pressure to become more efficient and transparent, and we are determined to help them rise to this challenge.
Our strength is our ability to understand this challenge and to adopt a new type of thinking using digital legal technologies and alternative resourcing models.
OA Legal is transforming the way it delivers its services to its clients in the most efficient and effective way.
This is the reason why OA Legal has been in the process of obtaining a B Corp certification from leading global sustainability non-profit B Lab, in recognition of its corporate sustainability practices.
The B Corp certification is one of the world’s most advanced ratings for corporate sustainability. Becoming a ‘B Corp’ involves a rigorous assessment of a company’s environmental and social performance and governance. It measures how companies manage its people, environmental footprint, products, suppliers and the communities with whom they interact.
OA Legal acts as the Registration Authority Agency for Swisscom and is responsible for the identification process of clients in order to provide them with QES under Swiss law. The QES client onboarding and identification can be made on site at OA Legal premises or by video identification.
By using QES, OA Legal ensures legal security and authentication of the signatures, eliminates paperwork overload, reduces costs of registered mail and facilitates for the clients the signature of documents by signing instantly with their mobile phone.
As of today, it is possible in Geneva to communicate with most of the important courts and authorities in criminal and civil proceedings, but with the upcoming Justitia 4.0 project, this process will be generalized for all authorities.

Under Swiss law, shareholders have an inherent right to attend the meeting in person. In light of the ban to meet in person, the Swiss government had therefore granted a number of relaxations. The most important one was to allow shareholders to exercise their rights exclusively in writing, electronically or via an independent representative designated by the company for the holding of the general assembly.
OA Legal SA is the first Swiss Law Firm that has been fully digitally incorporated within the Geneva Commercial Register by holding remotely the incorporating meeting via videoconference before the public notary and using electronic qualified signature in accordance with art. 27 of the COVID-2019 Ordinance 3
