There’s more to come on BianchiSchwald with the launch of our comprehensive website in April.

The New Law Firm

BianchiSchwald combines the skills and know-how of the Corporate and Intellectual Property Law teams, the team in Berne including litigators from Staiger, Schwald & Partner with the expertise of the renowned BCCC Attorneys-at-Law office in Western Switzerland.

Achieving great things together

With offices in four major cities of Switzerland, BianchiSchwald is positioned to deliver outstanding legal advice at national level.

BianchiSchwald was founded on January 1, 2017. Our new national law firm was created through the merger of the renowned business law firm BCCC (originally Bianchi Carnicé Christin & de Coulon) and the Corporate and Intellectual Property teams from Staiger, Schwald & Partner, together with its Berne office and litigators.

With offices in Geneva, Zurich, Lausanne and Bern we now have national coverage and are ideally positioned to deliver the full spectrum of legal services on a national level. BianchiSchwald also benefits from its trusted network in Europe and beyond.


Personal advice as a key to success

With 14 partners and some 50 lawyers and legal professionals in total, BianchiSchwald is equipped to resolve major and complex assignments, drawing on its combined wealth of experience, passion and personal commitment.

As a distinctive feature, BianchiSchwald is a fully integrated law firm, governed as One Firm and driven by a culture promoting cooperation among lawyers and based on partners’ personal involvement in assignments. Personalized advice, provided by the organization’s lawyers who are best suited to handle the case, plays a central role at BianchiSchwald.

We are convinced that our organization, our expertise, our uncompromised independence and our ability to embrace changes are the responses to our clients’ evolving needs and the challenges of the legal profession.

We are proud to present the people behind BianchiSchwald.


Achieving goals and delivering value

Our motto is to achieve significant, lasting customer satisfaction. This is not just an empty phrase. Our clients expect first-class legal, tax and financial advice from highly-qualified experts with solid experience in all areas of business law and various legal systems. They also rightly expect our lawyers to know them and their business. Our 14 partners and some 50 lawyers and legal professionals draw on their extensive know-how gathered over the years to provide you and your organization with the best possible service.
