Our history

Founded in 1911 by Dr. Josef Henggeler, our firm is the longest established of all of Switzerland's major law firms. It subsequently grew and flourished under the management of Dr. Anton Pestalozzi and Dr. Paul Gmur, providing top-flight legal advice and services to a wide range of national and international clients.

In 1992, we extended our geographical reach and opened offices in Geneva.

Since 2008 the firm has operated under the name Pestalozzi Attorneys at Law Ltd.
