Notre étude d'avocats

PYTHON started its practice at 3 Rue François-Bellot in the Old Town of Geneva in 1981. Other offices opened thereafter in Lausanne, Sion, Berne and Zug.

PYTHON has successfully advised local and international clients for nearly forty years.

We are a trusted and reputable business law firm with over fifty multilingual Swiss and foreign qualified attorneys located in offices across Switzerland and in Brussels.

The exceptional legal and commercial know-how and acumen of our attorneys in multiple practice areas, our history and our facilities enable us to play a significant role on the Swiss and international scene. As an example of our dynamism, the Swiss reference legal data base, Swisslex (www.swisslex.ch), which is largely used by Swiss legal practitioners, has been created in the mid-80s in our firm.

Excellent client feedback propels our strong and well known reputation for providing the highest quality advice.

    In accordance with applicable Swiss law and international Bar rules, we have a strict fundamental duty to keep the affairs of our clients and former clients confidential (except where disclosure is required or permitted by law, the court(s) or by the client).

    There is also a duty not to put confidentiality at risk by acting for a client where to do so might put at risk the confidential information held by our firm for another client.

    We believe that this broad client base has developed as a result of our commitment to our core principles of efficiency, responsiveness, flexibility, independence, high quality and creativity.
