Hess Rechtsanwälte und Notare AG stands for personal and professional legal advice from one source with strong roots in the region. The family business run by father and daughter puts special emphasis on comprehensive, highly personal advice, while focussing on notarial services, such as real estate, company, marital and inheritance law. Based in the Canton of Obwalden and established in the 70s, lawyer and notary Dr. Hans Hess has steadily extended the law office ever since. In 2005, his daughter Simone Hess Nielsen, also a lawyer and notary, boarded the company, which is based in the former family home of Dr. Hans Hess.
