Professional Biography:

Cécile Berger Meyer leads the Real Estate practice group of Lenz & Staehelin in Geneva. She advises both private and institutional clients in the field of real estate law, and in respect of both civil matters (purchases, sales, structuring and financing) and administrative law matters (planning, construction licenses, restrictions on acquisitions). Cécile Berger Meyer is also a judge with the Geneva Lease Court (landlord side), is vice-chairman of the SVIT Romandie and is on the committees of several other professional organizations active in the real estate sector.

Considered “a prominent real estate specialist” (Who’s Who Legal, 2017), the “excellent” (Legal 500, 2016) Cecile Berger Meyer is “an increasingly recognized presence in the regional real estate market”; commentators recommend her “capability to focus on the goal of the clients”” (Chambers Europe, 2016). She is “highly personable” and offers “practical solutions” and “excellent knowledge” on a wide variety of matters (Who’s Who Legal, 2016).


While Lenz & Staehelin is acknowledged by most as Switzerland’s leading law firm, its connections and expertise span the globe. With over 200 lawyers, its ability to innovate and adapt to the ever-changing complexities of legal and regulatory environments in Switzerland and beyond, has attracted many of the world’s top corporations as well as private individuals.

Continuity, stability and a pragmatic understanding of the big picture have all played a significant part in the firm’s development and success – and in its ability to attract the best young talent. Swiss-orientated but globally attuned, Lenz & Staehelin is rightly recognized in Switzerland and abroad as ‘The world’s Swiss law firm’.
