Since it was established in 1994, the firm has continued to grow dynamically, coherently and with an entrepreneurial spirit.
To date, the firm has nine partners. In 2002, Laurence Bory went into partnership with Emmanuel Ducrest. They were later joined by Corinne Nerfin and Jacques Berta in 2003. The team was further strengthened when Bernd Reinmüller joined in 2012, Emmanuelle Guiguet in 2016, Eric Alves de Souza in 2017, Olivier Rivoire in 2019 and Tatiana Gurbanov in 2021. Each of them came with proven and recognised experience and knowledge in their respective fields, their skills complementing each other.
The Firm's partners, as well as its other lawyers, practice their profession with passion and determination. The Firm's priority is to ensure a high level of competence and personalised service to its clients, be they individuals, legal entities or State entities. Guided by their clients' interests, they do everything possible to arrive at the best possible solution, either amicably or, if necessary, by defending their rights before cantonal and federal authorities or before national and international arbitration bodies.
The Firm advises its clients in many spheres of daily life and business activity, in particular in the areas of family law, estate planning and inheritance law, contract law, corporate law, banking and finance law, real estate and tenancy law, labour and employment law, criminal law, immigration and pension law, and international business law.
In addition to their work within the Firm, the partners have always considered it natural and useful to be actively involved in parallel activities – as an associate judge at the Geneva courts, a law professor, a member of the lawyers' supervisory body, a trainer at the Geneva Law School (“Ecole d’Avocature”), President of the Union Internationale des Avocats, or in a term of office as an independent board member.
This kind of involvement has enabled them to maintain close links with the judiciary, the academic and the business worlds, and to develop a wide network at local, national and international levels.
We wish you a pleasant visit of our website and look forward to assisting you with any legal issues you may face.
