Who we are

We are an influential, innovative Swiss law firm, dedicated to providing effective legal solutions to business, tax and regulatory matters. Our attorneys, tax advisers and public notaries are organised under the direction of experienced partners in practice teams, covering all areas of commercial law. Our breadth of practice ensures we have the right team available for every mandate and client.

Clients demand and deserve impartial, unbiased advice. Our conflict of interest standards set us apart from other firms. The fact that we are not tied to an association of law firms or attorney network means that our ability to select and instruct counsel in international transaction is not compromised. We have spent decades building up networks with attorneys and firms that meet our standard. We can choose freely from that network, according to the demands of the matter at hand.

Our offices can be found in Zurich and Basel, the two largest business centres of Switzerland.

History

The earliest roots of Vischer’s continued success story can be found in 1857 at the offices of Lichtenhahn & Heusler, which flourished into Gloor, Schiess & Partner and ultimately, in 1999, into Gloor & Christ. A year later, in order to gain a foothold in Zurich, Gloor & Christ merged with the renowned Zurich law firm of Pestalozzi Haegi & Partner and, from that point on, traded as VISCHER.

The attorneys, tax advisers and civil law notaries of VISCHER are organised in practice teams which continuously improve our legal and industry know-how. Often we work in specific client teams to ensure continuity of service for our clients in longterm or complex mandates. Each client team is led by a partner who acts as the client’s main point of contact.
