International sporting history was made with the breathtaking performance of the Kiwi Fondue Team in July 2023. The Kiwi Fondue Team broke the world record in the Pacific race World's Toughest Row.

Dr. Alain P. Röthlisberger and navigator Alexander Gammeter analyzed the race together in the second interview and compared the parallels between challenging negotiations and extreme sports.

The countdown is on. Once again this year, we are proud to host a Vis Moot Court Trial Round incl. Negotiation Add-on. On February 13, 2024, we will have the privilege of welcoming the teams from the following universities: Berne, Zurich, Lausanne and Geneva.

Negotiation skills are an integral part of BGPartner's DNA. Training in negotiation skills not only leads to better results in real life, but is also highly relevant for students for their future careers as successful lawyers.

In addition to the official Vis Moot Court Trial Round, BGPartner therefore offers an additional training round in which the teams can develop their negotiation skills. They will benefit directly from the input of our negotiation experts.

We look forward to seeing you there!

LAWorld EMEA Meeting Versailles

01. December 2023

The answer to the question "what makes a professional network strong" is multifaceted. However, one thing is clear: a network is only as strong as the relationships among its members. And this is cultivated at LAWorld in the form of regular get-togethers.

We are proud to be part of this positive development and will continue to write the success stories of LAWorld. Thanks again to our partner CAP LEGAL AARPI, you were a perfect host. We not only benefited professionally from the event in Versailles, but also had a lot of fun.
