The Swiss Chapter of the Women's White Collar Defense Association (WWCDA) was launched in September 2018 by Schellenberg Wittmer lawyers Clara Poglia and Sylvie Bertrand-Curreli.

The Swiss Chapter of the Association provides a forum for talented and experienced white collar defense lawyers to gather, network and discuss significant issues and challenges in relation to the business crime defense field.

Our mission is to provide members regular opportunities to build relationships and broaden their network of professional contacts across Switzerland and internationally through the WWCDA.

The Swiss Chapter looks forward to working closely with its global counterparts across the WWCDA to help bridge relationships between our practices.


The Swiss Chapter accepts Law Firm Attorney Members and Consultant Affiliate Members as defined:  

Law Firm Attorney Member: Women attorney private practitioners primarily practicing in the area of White Collar Defense and Investigations, defined as those who specialize in the representation of corporations, other organizations and individuals facing government enforcement actions (criminal, civil, regulatory, and administrative), and in internal investigations, compliance and ethics matters.   

Consultant Affiliate: Women professionals who work at consulting firms (or non-attorney professionals who work at law firms) and specialize in the White Collar Defense and Investigations field, and who otherwise qualify under the WWCDA membership criteria and offer support services and referral opportunities to attorneys in the practice.  The affiliate status will permit you to participate in certain activities of the chapter and WWCDA. 

Some WWCDA and chapter events may be limited to women attorney private practitioner (law firm attorney) members only. 

All Members and Affiliates must have their primary work address in the same location as our chapter.
