Who's Who Legal Switzerland - Banking

Grégoire Wuest is a partner in Schellenberg Wittmer's Geneva office. His practice focuses on banking and finance, in particular in the field of multi-jurisdictional transactions involving non-standard and highly valuable assets securing borrowings, complex cross-border acquisitions, and other financial transactions – notably in relation to the shipping and business aviation industries. Grégoire also advises Swiss and foreign financial institutions on regulatory matters and on the implementation of new regulations.

Grégoire's recent expertise in banking includes: advising a major European banking group in a large banking restructuring involving an international cross-border merger whereby the Swiss bank of the group absorbed an affiliated bank and the subsequent opening of a branch abroad; advising a major Swiss bank with a strong international presence in the acquisitions/disposals of strategic clients' banking portfolios; advising a major European banking group in multi-hundred millions financings secured by exotic assets and advising a boutique Swiss bank on the redrafting and amendment of its entire contractual documentation and all internal regulations and improving e-banking for clients.

Grégoire studied at the University of Geneva and was admitted to the Swiss Bar in 2009 (ranked second). Grégoire has been a partner at Schellenberg Wittmer since 2016.

WWL says: Grégoire Wuest “is by far the most trusted banking lawyer in the market” according to sources who note “there is no comparison with any other lawyer”. One client effuses: “I feel in safe hands with him which is the most valuable asset for my company.”
