We are very pleased to announce that Schellenberg Wittmer has been named „Swiss Law Firm of the Year 2009“ by The Lawyer magazine (www.thelawyer.com) at its European Awards ceremony in Barcelona on 4 November 2009. Schellenberg Wittmer was chosen from a shortlist with Bär & Karrer, Homburger and Lenz & Staehelin (http://www.thelawyer.com/1002495.article):
"The Lawyer Awards in the UK has been the industry's benchmark of quality for more than a decade. [...] The Lawyer editorial team have interviewed hundreds of lawyers and their clients as an aid to judging the entries. To supplement this, a judging panel made up of well-travelled managing partners and in-house lawyers at FTSE 100 companies brought their own expertise to bear."
The Lawyer emphasized the following reasons for choosing Schellenberg Wittmer:
“With strength across both French- and German-speaking Switzerland, Schellenberg Wittmer has had a strong year. The firm’s thoughtful approach to the organisation of its internal partnership has won it many plaudits. The new Schellenberg Wittmer Academy, a training programme for associates, is a long-term and ambitious plan that goes to the heart of the firm’s ethos. Financially strong and with a considered strategy of growth, this firm is a strong performer and good home for any lawyer.”
