Our history

Kellerhals Carrard was founded in 2015 out of the merger between Kellerhals Attorneys at Law and Carrard & Associés

Kellerhals Attorneys at Law dates back to 1919. In 2006, the Berne law firm Kellerhals & Partner merged with the Zurich firm Hess Dallafior to create Kellerhals Hess Rechtsanwälte. This was followed in 2009 by the merger with Christen, Rickli & Partner from Basel to form Kellerhals Attorneys at Law. Carrard & Associés dates back to the year 1885, with 2015 thus marking its 130th anniversary as a successful business.

The law firm, which has steadily grown into new locations, now includes more than 120 professionals.

Kellerhals Carrard has four locations with equal status in Basel, Berne, Lausanne/Sion and Zurich, which are arranged as general partnerships. In addition, we can draw on the services of the notaries of Kellerhals Carrard in Binningen (Canton of Basel Landschaft) and our Of Counsel in Shanghai.
