The Best Lawyers in Switzerland 2023 by Best Lawyers® and Handelsblatt

On 24th June 2022, Best Lawyers® and Handelsblatt announce the publication of the 2023 Edition of The Best Lawyers in Switzerland. 36 MLL Legal lawyers are recognised across 23 practice areas for a total of 61 listings and Simon Holzer receives the Lawyer of the Year 2023 Pharmaceuticals and Life Sciences award.

The 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in Switzerland recognises the professional excellence of 697 lawyers in 51 practice areas across the country. Lawyers who are nominated for consideration are voted on by currently recognised Best Lawyers working in the same practice area and located in the same geographic region. Their awards and recognitions are based purely on the feedback received from these top lawyers.

The peer-review publication, organised by practice area, lists the following MLL Legal lawyers, demonstrating the breadth and depth of their legal capabilities and recognition in the market:

In addition to historic individual lawyer recognition, Best Lawyers recognised individuals who particularly stand out in their area of practice as Lawyer of the Year honorees. Lawyer of the Year awards are bestowed to only lawyers with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region. They are determined based on a handful of factors, including feedback from lawyers recognised by Best Lawyers on individual lawyer and firm-wide work, the size and coverage of the firm in a specific practice area, historical analysis of the firm’s “Lawyer of the Year” awards in this area and research surrounding the firm’s overall scope and areas of expertise. This year, MLL Legal’s Head of the Patent and Life Sciences team Simon Holzer wins the Lawyer of the Year 2023 Pharmaceuticals and Life Sciences award.
