The self-contracting of the representative, i.e. the conclusion of a contract or the execution of a unilateral legal transaction by a person as a representative of a third party with himself as a partner is in principle inadmissible under Swiss law; however, it is permissible where there is no conflict between the interests of the representative and those of the person represented and thus fϋr the represented person does not run the risk of being overcharged.
