Today we maintain an even broader vision for excellence and highcalibre expertise across a wide prism of corporate and private client services worldwide. Our motto is to take things to the next level whilst catering towards institutional and private client needs across several jurisdictions. Following on this exciting journey of expansion and evolution, we are proud of where we have gotten today, and we look forward to further enhancing what we have already created. Join us, stay with us, grow with us. Sincerely, Roman Keller CEO


Our Legacy

The company’s history dates back to the year 1980 when the former General Consul of Panama in Switzerland, Rogelio Tribaldos - Alba laid the foundations in Zurich with services for the cross-border establishment and administration of companies. The company quickly became a market leader in the field of Company Formation and Company Foundation. The key to its international breakthrough was the expansion of the firm’s global network, as a result of global partnerships, international networking and word of mouth. The company then gradually developed into the first-choice institute for institutional and private clients in Switzerland. Today, the firm has evolved into an international service provider with its headquarters remaining in Zurich and with substantial office representation in Cyprus, Austria and Panama.



Our Vision

Today, Leo Services is owned by the Tribaldos family and is run by Roman Keller (CEO) as an independent, second-generation Swiss company. The firm relies on a formidably balanced interdisciplinary team of control experts, attorneys, trustees and family officers to advise and assist clients in all aspects of tax, succession planning and asset structuring. Since our inception, we have proceeded to open three other offices in strategic business locations across the globe, to best service our international spectrum of clients. Moreover, we are continuously improving and expanding on our service offering, to best meet the demands of the market. As a family-run company, Leo Services is committed to not only the highest ethical and professional standards, but also to the family and entrepreneurial roots of its customers.

Our Global Presence

Zurich, SWITZERLAND Since the early days, the premises at Löwenstrasse 40 in Zurich have served our company as the Head Office. As one of the world’s leading financial centres with a central location between East and West, Zurich offers the best conditions for the successful support of our international clientele. We are committed to a long-term strategy for the Zurich location, not least with our company name «LEO TRUST», which was chosen in honour of our longestablished Zurich offices at Löwenstrasse - Lion Street in English.

Nicosia, CYPRUS Our Nicosia office was established in 2011. From the outset, the Nicosia office was set up to take advantage of Cyprus’ strategic position, both in a geographical sense but also as an EU jurisdiction. The primary intention which remains to this day, is to have a professional office that efficiently and predominantly provides corporate, fiduciary, administrative and accounting services.


Vienna Zurich Nicosia

Panama City

Vienna, AUSTRIA The Vienna office was established in 2018. For decades, Austria has been regarded as one of the most attractive locations to conduct business in, both in Europe and worldwide. This is due highly to its excellent infrastructure, modern and efficient public administration, political and economic stability, as well as a very reliable legal system. With a low corporate tax rate, an advantageous group taxation regime, and the absence of wealth or trade tax, Austria is regarded by many as an ideal location for investment. Furthermore, Vienna serves as a business hub for numerous international companies and banks conducting business in CEE. Through its Vienna office, Leo Services offers corporate services and support in setting up your business in Austria.

Panama City, PANAMA The Panamanian Office of Leo Services was established in 2017 with Panama being chosen as the ideal Latin American hub for a number of different reasons. First and foremost, Panama is one of the most powerful international trading platforms worldwide, due both to its geographical location (access to both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans), and featuring the well-known Panama Canal, (one of the most influential spots for maritime trade worldwide), but also largely due to the fact that Panama is the second most popular country in the world to register a company (after Hong Kong), with over 500,000 companies having bases in the small nation. Panama also features one of the most attractive tax systems worldwide, a bilingual local population, an easy company incorporation process, and it holds a lot of opportunity for foreign investors.
