Who We Are

The profession of attorney at law is one of the liberal, completely independent occupations. As a results-orientated legal counsellor and advocate in private and professional matters, the attorney is primarily the defender of client interests. At the same time, the legal profession contributes to more efficient case law as well as to greater balance in a democratic society. The law and professional rules delineate the activity of the attorney while ensuring his or her independence and professional secrecy.

The Swiss Bar Association is the professional organization of independent and autonomous attorneys of Switzerland. It includes at present 11'418 members, including 3'794 women.
