Meet the team.

As a leading Swiss corporate law firm, we advise and represent enterprises and entrepreneurs in all aspects of commercial law – transactions, proceedings and complex cases both in a domestic and a global context.

We offer our clients comprehensive legal advice, support them through negotiations and transactions, represent them before public authorities and in court, and protect their interests in administrative proceedings. Throughout, we place great emphasis on identifying legally sustainable solutions to complex legal issues while never losing sight of our clients’ commercial objectives. 

We work closely with leading law firms abroad, which enables us to offer optimal solutions to companies with an interest in Switzerland, wherever their business activities take place.

We are organized around our main areas of practice: arbitration, banking and finance, capital markets, competition | regulatory, corporate M&A (including private equity), data protection | privacy, intellectual property | technology, litigation and tax. In addition, we focus on compliance, crisis management, employment and executive compensation, insurance, investigations and enforcement, private clients, real estate, restructuring | insolvency, technology and digital economy and white collar crime.


All of the 35 partners and approximately 150 lawyers and tax advisors are members of at least one expertise team. Most of our lawyers have additional legal qualifications and have studied or worked abroad. Legal publications and league tables consistently rank Homburger in the top tier of its main areas of practice.

In addition to Switzerland, we focus on established markets in Europe, North America and Asia. This is supported by regional focus groups that foster good relations with selected regional markets.

"The lawyers at Homburger have always demonstrated excellent knowledge and are able to deliver an excellent level of advice."
