Fontanet & Associés was founded in Geneva in 1985. The practice offers the diverse skills of its thirty-strong staff to a client base of companies, public authorities and private clients in Switzerland and abroad.

The Practice

The humanistic approach of Guy Fontanet, former member of the Geneva State Council  and founder of our practice, has always been a guiding principle of our work by placing respect in the centre of client relationships. The active involvement of a number of Fontanet & Associés staff members in political, academic and judicial life (one professor at the University of Geneva and two Deputy judges) is a reflection of its open-mindedness, and the strength and importance of its professional team.

By using its strengths, cross-skills and its broad and deep network, Fontanet & Associés is able to guide foreign companies through the process of relocation to Switzerland or to conduct international projects from their Swiss base.


Delivering the highest professional skills as well as promoting the humanistic approach of our founder Guy Fontanet has always been the core principle of Fontanet & Associés in dealing with our clients, whether they are companies, public authorities or private clients.
