The leading Swiss business law firms BianchiSchwald, GHR Rechtsanwälte and PYTHON merge to form valfor. The merger creates one of the most competitive national business law firms with more than 70 lawyers in six offices in Switzerland and an office in Brussels. In an increasingly complex economic and legal environment, valfor positions itself as a one-stop shop for comprehensive advice on national and international business law.

From July 1, 2024, BianchiSchwald, GHR Rechtsanwälte and PYTHON will operate as valfor. The merger will result in one of Switzerland’s leading nationwide commercial law firms with more than 70 lawyers in Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, Sion, Zug and Zurich as well as in Brussels.

Under the maxim «value beyond legal advice», the new law firm stands for continuous commitment and the shared aspiration to always offer its clients real added value. With a strong interdisciplinary and international focus in all areas of business law, valfor offers clients comprehensive advice tailored to their individual needs from a single source.

By merging to form valfor, the new firm will be able to expand its client relationships, deepen its core competencies, extend its geographical reach and optimize the efficiency of its internal structures and processes. For clients requiring international advice, the new firm’s experts are closely connected to leading law firms and consultants worldwide through their established networks. In this way, valfor combines the strengths and many years of experience of the founding law firms BianchiSchwald, GHR Rechtsanwälte and PYTHON to form a more powerful unit that can support and advise its clients even more effectively. valfor is thus playing a leading role in actively shaping a market development in which comprehensive and at the same time bundled knowledge as well as first-class, integrated solutions and outstanding services are in demand – beyond national borders.
