‘Let’s get visible’


Featured in our Switzerland Report (July 2021)


Sandra De Vito Bieri has done something rather special. In June 2021, she became the managing partner of Bratschi. Formed from the merger of three firms in 2008, Bratschi is a sizeable player in the Swiss legal market with 54 partners and just over 100 lawyers across its offices in Zurich, Berne, St. Gallen, Geneva, Zug, Basel and Lausanne. 

The appointment of women to top jobs in UK law firms has become almost de rigueur. Last October, Georgia Dawson broke the glass ceiling among the magic circle firms, becoming the first female senior partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. Over the past six months, a flood of female appointees has followed: Karen Davies as the new chair at Ashurst; Aedamar Comiskey as senior partner at Linklaters; Marie-Aimée de Dampierre as chair at Hogan Lovells; and Rebecca Maslen- Stannage as both senior partner and chair at Herbert Smith Freehills.
