FBT Avocats

Founded in 1993, FBT Attorneys-at-Law (FBT) is a multidisciplinary law firm, based in Geneva and Paris, which operates in the financial and commercial sectors as well as in niche activities, with a predominantly cross-border dimension.

FBT lawyers and tax advisers have worked in banks, multinational companies, international trust companies, family offices, notary offices and law firms, in Switzerland, in France and in other countries.

These French-Swiss teams routinely work at the most exacting level to assist their clients in their domestic and cross-border operations.

Owing to the quality of its network of lawyers outside Switzerland, FBT long ago developed a proven capacity for mobilizing and coordinating specialized teams in different countries.

This work has enabled FBT to distinguish itself in cross-border transactions.

Thus, the abilities and experience required by the ever more complex legal challenges facing our Swiss and foreign clients converge in a single law firm.

Six teams in Geneva and Paris

The firm’s organization comprises specialized and complementary legal teams working in two locations and focused on the following spheres of expertise:

Team Specialisation

and Specialised Group Synergies

Each group includes one or several partners, associates and legal specialists – lawyers, tax experts, economists – bringing extensive experience to the group’s area of activity.

Constant exchanges among these groups translates into continual sharing of up-to-date information in each area.

Depending on the case, FBT sets up a “multidisciplinary legal team” to:

  • deal comprehensively and pragmatically with the various aspects of the case
  • respond rapidly while maintaining a high level of legal security
  • ensure optimal cost control
