Top-100 UK law firm Speechly Bircham has expanded its international presence with the opening of an office in Geneva.

The firm says the move, which follows its opening of offices in Zurich and Luxembourg in 2011, forms part of its international growth plans.

The Geneva office is being headed up by newly-recruited international private client lawyers Michael Wells-Greco and Francis Rojas, who have worked together over many years at Withers in Geneva and, more recently, at Maitland. Mark Summers continues as head of the firm’s Swiss practice.

“The office in Geneva represents an important development in the firm’s international expansion,” said senior partner Michael Lingens.

“Growing client demand for joined-up corporate and private wealth expertise made a second presence in Switzerland a logical next move for us.”

Switzerland is home to a third of the world's privately-held wealth and a quarter of the world’s private banking.
