The cultural diversity, dynamic approach and business-oriented thinking of our lawyers sets us apart from other law firms. 

We see ourselves as partners and not only lawyers for our clients. We believe that we serve our clients best when we think with them and not for them. We are highly dedicated and committed to our clients and respond quickly, competently and efficiently to their legal questions. Our network includes Swiss universities and important players in Swiss law. This ensures constant access to the latest expertise and current developments in Swiss and international law.

Froriep Reception

We maintain a large international network with our Swiss and international presence as well as our involvement in international professional associations. Our vision is to be an innovative firm. Apart from expanding our traditional areas of expertise, we are also strengthening our knowledge in the following three focus areas, which we believe to become more and more important for our clients in the next few years: 

  • Governance and trust in and between virtual worlds and the real world 
  • Artificial intelligence and digitalisation 
  • Resources, including commodities, food, water, energy and waste

This is our focus in order to be prepared to wherever the future may lead us.

This year our firm is merging with another prominent Swiss law firm, Meyerlustenberger Lachenal. The merger will establish the combined new entity as one of the largest commercial law firms in Switzerland with 155 lawyers in 4 offices in Switzerland and 2 offices abroad, in London and Madrid. The new law firm will have a strong international profile and brings together recognized leadership and expertise in all areas of law affecting commerce today, with a focus on high-tech, innovative and regulated sectors.
