Firm overview: We are an influential, innovative Swiss law firm, ranked among Switzerland’s leading law firms by the world’s most prestigious law firm rankings Chambers Europe, Chambers Global and Legal 500. We are dedicated to providing effective legal solutions to business, tax and regulatory matters. Our approximately 90 lawyers, tax advisers and public notaries are organized under the direction of experienced partners in practice teams, covering all areas of commercial law. Our breadth of practice ensures we have the right team available for every mandate and client.

Clients demand and deserve impartial, unbiased advice. Our conflict of interest standards set us apart from other firms. The fact that we are not tied to an association of law firms or attorney network means that our ability to select and instruct counsel in international transaction is not compromised. We have spent decades building up networks with attorneys and firms that meet our standards. We can choose freely from that network, according to the demands of the matter at hand.

VISCHER has grouped partners and associates experienced in dealing with Chinese direct investments and Sino-Swiss trade in its China desk, to pool the relevant experience and efficiently handle mandates relating to China. We are supported by our China desk associate, Fiona Gao, a seasoned native Chinese attorney, who enables us to communicate with our Chinese clients in Chinese and to make them feel at home when dealing with us. VISCHER is a member of the Swiss-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) and of the Swiss Chinese Chamber of Commerce in China.

Our offices can be found in Zurich and Basel, the two largest business centres of Switzerland.

事务所简介:菲谢尔是一家有富有战斗力、影响力和创新精神的瑞士律师事务所,在钱伯斯欧洲和钱伯斯全球500强排名中名列瑞士律师事务所前茅。我们为客户提供法律、税务以及治理范围内的有效解决方案。我们的专业团队由久经沙场的合伙人领导,由近百名律师、税务师及公证人组成,经验丰富,遍及所有经济领域。这些优势使我们能够为客户提供量身定制且极为迅速有效的个性化服务。

独立性是我们得以保障客户利益的关键,因此我们一如既往地坚守极高的避免利益冲突准则,这在法律服务国际化的当下已经越来越难能可贵了。在国际客服领域,我们既没有加入某个律师事务所联盟,也没有参加任何有组织的律师网络。为了在国际客服上也保持独立,我们历经数十年,全力打造一个自己的、覆盖全球所有重要经济区域的协理律师网络。我们因而不受制于某一律师事务所联盟或某一律师组织的内部方针,得以完全从客户的利益出发,自由选择我们的国外协理律师。

我们的律师中,有的已经对中国企业在瑞士投资过程中的一些特殊问题有深切的了解,有的十分熟悉对华贸易,菲谢尔将他们的经验聚集起来,为中国客户提供最佳的服务。我们的律师高悦女士为菲谢尔中国业务团队提供鼎力支持,她可以用中文与我们的中国客户沟通,令人感到宾至如归。菲谢尔是瑞中商会(SCCC)和北京瑞士商会的会员。

我们在瑞士最大的两个经济中心城市苏黎世和巴塞尔设有分所。
