Withers to launch new office in Zurich

Withers is set to launch an office in Zurich in April. The firm’s ninth international base will be headed up by Geneva tax partner Judith Ingham, who will relocate to Zurich to take up her new role. Ingham will be joined by US tax and trust partner Jay Rubinstein and London corporate partner Olga Boltenko. Ingham said: "The Swiss market has withstood the downturn well, and since opening our office in Geneva in 2005 we have seen a good and consistent flow of work. We have found that we are constantly being asked to help clients in Zurich, and while we can access the Zurich market from our Geneva office, we thought that rather than expanding our operations in Geneva it would make more sense to open a new base.
