BianchiSchwald celebrates the 20th anniversary of "BCCC"

Twenty years ago, on 2 April 2001, four young “pioneers” launched “BCCC” as a modern, ambitious, entrepreneurial and, above all, fully integrated business law firm. A few grey hair and a merger with leading Zurich lawyers later, we are proud of our journey and would like to thank all our partners and employees, current and former, our clients and more generally all friends of BianchiSchwald for their trust, their support, their loyalty and their contribution to the success of this inspiring venture.

Thank you all!
