LEXPARTNERS. was established in 1978 and is an active member of Consulegis since 1990. In 2013 LEXPARTNERS. and MCS-LAW, a firm specialised in business and media law, merged to LEXPARTNERS.MCS. The result of this merger is a distinguished law firm and notary's office with a qualified team of attorneys and notaries in four different locations in Basel, Binningen and Muttenz, all in the north-western part of Switzerland and very close to Germany and France. LEXPARTNERS.MCS provides the client with quick and comprehensive single-sourced solutions by still advising personally.
All of our attorneys and notaries have extensive experience over many years in their field of law. In addition to the excellent international contacts, LEXPARTNERS.MCS also maintains strong regional ties through its partners’ personal engagements in associations, in different boards and political and business networks.
