Relocation of the Lausanne Office / Change of personnel

As from November 1, 2007, the Lausanne office has left the Place Saint-François and moved to 34, avenue du Tribunal-Fédéral, in completely renovated premises which offer a large work space ready to receive a reinforced team.

Gilles Favre, the partner responsible for the office since its creation in 1990, has been joined by Lucien Masmejan, also a partner in the office as of May 1, 2007. Jacques Iffland, a partner with the Mergers & Acquisitions group in Geneva, will complete the Lausanne team and will share his time between the two offices.

The team of associates, made up until now of Nicole Blöchlinger and Anne Cherpillod, will be reinforced by the arrival of Jérôme Piguet, certified tax expert who has been a member of the tax department in Geneva since 2000, and by Yannis Egloff who joined the office at the same time as Lucien Masmejan.

The Lausanne office whilst continuing its traditional activity of litigation, will be reinforced and through the arrival of these new partners and associates will develop its activity of advice in the fields of commercial law, sports law, real estate law and tax law. The office will also be active in the private client field.
