Who we are

Founded in 1992 and registered as a corporation since 2000, GHR is a leading Swiss independent full-service business law firm with a proven track record and market recognition in corporate/M&A and other key areas of business law.

From our offices in Bern and Zurich, we provide legal services to local and global clients, regardless whether they are small private business enterprises or multinational corporations, public sector organizations or individuals.

As a member of three major independent law firm networks and with strong relationships with some of the world’s leading law firms, we have access to top tier legal advice worldwide.


What sets us apart

We are not nor do we want to be Switzerland's largest law firm measured by the number of professionals or office locations. Many of our competitors are much larger than we are, but size is not the measure for all things. We strive to be the law firm of choice for clients with the most challenging and complex legal issues. Our aim is to deliver coherent and consistent services and products of the highest quality in the shortest possible time. Our focus is therefore on competence, efficiency, timeliness and value for money, not on size. That is why we have made a deliberate choice to specialize in selected key sectors of business law and to focus exclusively on what we do best.

Our clients' needs, expectations and goals are at the forefront of everything we do. In order to achieve those objectives, we create an empowering environment for our people to grow as leading professionals, develop strategies and solutions in flexible multi-disciplinary teams and guarantee a high level of partner involvement in every transaction. Our aspiration is to provide value beyond legal advice, not just legal advice.

With over 28 years of experience and a team of highly dedicated professionals, we take pride in our work, our understanding of our clients' industries and needs and our unparalleled customer service. That is why we are one of Switzerland's leading business law firms.
