Law firm founded in 1921
Our firm, founded in 1921, is one of the longest established in Switzerland and has since then built a strong reputation, both locally and internationally.
PONCET TURRETTINI consciously chose to retain a medium size, providing its clients with first-rate service in most practice areas, whilst preserving and ensuring a close, personal client-attorney relationship.
All the firm’s attorneys are members of the Geneva Bar and many also practice elsewhere in Switzerland. Many of the firm’s attorneys hold degrees from foreign universities or have practiced abroad. Our main practice languages are French and English though many of our attorneys also practice in German, Italian or Spanish.
PONCET TURRETTINI provides a comprehensive range of legal services, notably in the areas of banking law, commercial law, insurance law, administrative law (especially construction and planning law, real estate law and public contracts/procurements), international litigation and arbitration, estate and inheritance law, and criminal law. In this latter field, we have considerable experience in complex fraud and mutual legal assistance matters.
Our firm services both corporate and private clients, based Switzerland and abroad.
Throughout the years, we have built a substantial network of excellent correspondents, in Switzerland and internationally, allowing us to provide and coordinate services in complex international matters and proceedings.
PONCET TURRETTINI also has a long tradition of engagement in academic activities, including teaching, research and publication. Partners of the firm have held or currently hold positions, including professorships, in the universities of Geneva, Lausanne and Fribourg, notably in criminal procedure and mutual legal assistance in criminal matters, in commercial fraud law, banking law and administrative law. In addition, attorneys from our firm are regularly invited to participate, as speakers or chairs, in seminars in various legal areas.
The firm distinguishes itself through the combination of in-depth knowledge and experience, together with a resolutely pragmatic approach, geared towards swift and efficient solutions to the clients’ needs.
The firm, its partners and associates are members of several professional organisations such as the Geneva Bar Association, the Swiss Bar Association, the Swiss Arbitration Association, the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services, the Swiss Criminal Law Society, the Geneva Business Law Association, the Geneva Law and Legislation Society.
