Every year, six student trainees receive the opportunity to look behind the scenes at BianchiSchwald's Zurich office during their semester break. This year again, we are providing a practical training program full of variety in our practice areas over a period of four weeks. In addition, our student trainees get to know our locations in Switzerland on several excursions. Last week, one of the highlights was the construction site visit to the Swiss Life Arena in Zurich, the new “home base” of the ZSC Lions.

BianchiSchwald acted as legal counsel for Banque Profil de Gestion SA in its purchase of One Swiss Bank SA, which closed on June 1, 2021, the subsequent merger between both banks and the change of its shareholder of reference. The assets under management of the merged bank, now renamed ONE swiss Bank SA (https://oneswissbank.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/BPDG_20210604_DecisionsAGE2021-1.pdf), amount to nearly CHF 5 billion right after closing.
BianchiSchwald assisted the bank throughout this complex transaction, in particular, with all contractual, corporate, regulatory, tax, employment and stock exchange law related matters.
