Bratschi looks back on a long corporate history in Switzerland. The firm emerged in its current form in 2008 from the merger of three established law firms from Bern (Bratschi Emch), Zurich (Forster Wiederkehr) and St. Gallen (Buob Staub & Partner). The merger of these three pillars resulted in today's Bratschi Ltd, one of the leading and fast growing law firms in Switzerland. Today, with the exception of the Italian region, the firm covers the whole of Switzerland geographically and can count a complete range of legal and specialist areas as well as regional relationship networks among its exceptional strengths.
