Best Lawyers® has proudly highlighted the extraordinary accomplishments of those in the legal profession around the globe for over four decades, using thorough research and peer review surveys to offer completely unbiased legal referrals.

Lawyers who are nominated for consideration are voted on by currently recognized Best Lawyers working in the same practice area and located in the same geographic region. Our awards and recognitions are based purely on the feedback we receive from these top lawyers. Those who receive high peer reviews undergo a thorough verification process to make sure they are currently still in private practice. Only then can these top lawyers be recognized by Best Lawyers.

It is our honor to announce the 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in Switzerland™. For the 13th Edition, Best Lawyers honored 697 lawyers in 51 practice areas.
