André Brunschweiler joined LALIVE in 2010. His main areas of practice are domestic and international litigation, including debt recovery and insolvency proceedings, corporate and commercial law, including international commercial contracts, and employment law.

During 2013/14 André Brunschweiler was seconded as Of Counsel to a leading Chinese business law firm in Beijing. Whilst in China, he mainly worked on cross-border corporate and M&A matters, including in- and outbound investments. In particular, he advised Chinese state-owned and private entities on their outbound investments into Switzerland, as well as foreign, mainly European clients in relation to their business activities in China, including on the establishment and review of joint ventures and other corporate structures. Back in Switzerland, he now also focuses on commercial litigation, including shareholders’ disputes, banking litigation, asset recovery and enforcement proceedings of foreign judgments and awards.

André Brunschweiler is vice-chair of the IPBA’s Cross-Border Investment Committee and is a member of the Zurich Bar Association (ZAV), the Swiss Bar Association (SAV) and LAWASIA.

Before joining LALIVE, André Brunschweiler worked as a trainee-lawyer with Schellenberg Wittmer in Zurich and Geneva (2006 – 2008) and as a law clerk at the District Court of Zurich (2008). Whilst studying law, he was employed as a paralegal with von der Crone Rechtsanwälte (2003 – 2005) and as a clerk at AXA Winterthur Insurance (2000 – 2002).

André Brunschweiler graduated in 2006 from the University of Zurich (lic.iur.; magna cum laude). He also studied law at the University François Rabelais of Tours (France).
