30 Years Bader Gnehm & Partner

12. February 2018

In 1988, the foundation stone for today's law firm "Bader Gnehm & Partner" was laid on Münstergasse, Berne. Since then 30 years have passed and the world as well as the legal profession and our law firm have changed a lot. The number of lawyers in Switzerland has risen from 4,000 to 12,000. And we have grown from a one-man law firm into a leading medium-sized business law firm with offices in Berne, Murten and Zurich and a worldwide network of partner law firms.

On 3 February 2018, we were able to toast to this joyous event with friends and clients from all over the world in the Kornhauskeller in Berne. The evening was accompanied by Imelda Gabs, a gifted young jazz pianist who is already a fixture at our annual jazz brunch in the summer.

Impressions of the evening can be found here.
