Olivier Thévoz launched his first entrepreneurial activity when he was 19. At the age of 23, he passed his Swiss federal certificate as a fiduciary with flying colors. He then came to manage the Morges branch of the accounting and tax consultancy service provider Fidexaudit SA and obtained his Swiss federal diploma as a certified fiduciary in 2006. He took up studying at the University of Lausanne whilst continuing to perform professionally, in particular in a law firm specialized in tax law. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Law – magna cum laude – in 2009, followed by his Master’s degree – summa cum laude – in 2011 and was awarded the Ecublens Prize for Outstanding Achievement. He subsequently prepared the Bar exam (stage d’avocat) at the law firm of Mr. Robert Fox in Lausanne and joined the law firm Heim Paschoud Thévoz Weniger as a partner.
In 2015, he decided to found an international law firm specialized in business law; the Groupe THEVOZ Attorneys was born.
For many years, Olivier Thévoz has been appointed as Director of several financial companies and acts as expert during the examinations for the certifications of Swiss federal fiduciary agent (brevet fédéral d’agent fiduciaire) and Swiss federal fiduciary expert (diplôme fédéral d’expert fiduciaire). He has also given courses at AKAD Banking and Finance and the Swiss Chamber of Certified Accounts and Tax Experts (Chambre fiduciaire).
