Morad Law

I specialize in providing legal advice on commercial law for companies and private individuals.  

Within the wide range of legal issues that arise in day-to-day business the focus of my advisory services is on employment law, contract law and distribution law.  

In addition to competent legal advice efficient, interest-based conflict resolution is key.

Experience as independent lawyer and as inhouse counsel

For more than 15 years I have been working as an independent commercial lawyer in a forensic and advisory capacity. For many years I was a partner in commercial law firms in Zurich and today I run the law firm Marion Morad. My focus is on issues of employment law, contract law and distribution law (franchising, competition law, etc.).     

When resolving conflicts I focus on an efficient, and therefore economical, quick and cost-saving approach. The achievement of this aim is supported by the mediation technique, where the interests of the parties take center stage.  (Mediation).   

My many years of experience in the business world and knowledge of a company’s internal perspectives and the economic objectives of its management provide significant added value when advising companies as an independent lawyer.  

For many years I was Head of Legal Services and Deputy Secretary General of the Swiss group of an international retails organization (REWE, formerly Bon appétit Group, then the third largest retailer in Switzerland). My focus here was on commercial law issues, franchising, M&A and restructuring.  

Prior to that I worked as a inhouse lawyer for the largest Swiss retail group (MGB, Migros Group) in the field of labor law and industrial partnership, in which I aquired extensive experience regarding large-scale projects (e.g. national collective employment contract).  

Lastly I took on the role of Head of Legal and Compliance at the Swiss sales company of an international industrial group (BSH Hausgeräte AG). Once again the legal topics I am concerned with are commercial law issues. I am also Head of the Compliance Department, which deals with antitrust law, anti-corruption, data protection and money laundering. 

Other commitments  

I have worked for many years as member of the Board of Directors and as an external lawyer of confidence for several business associations and NGOs.  

I also was a lecturer for many years in higher education and adult education on the topics of contract law and corporate cooperation. 


I graduated from the University of Zurich in 1990 with a law degree (Master of Law).

I was admitted to the Bar in 1994. I am registered in the Registry of Lawyers (Canton of Zurich, admission in Switzerland).  

I graduated with a Master's degree in Economics (2001) at the University of St. Gallen. This was a full-time Executive MBA in New Media and Communication (in English) with semesters abroad in Berkeley (Haas Business School, University of Berkeley) and Luxembourg (University of Luxembourg).  

I completed many further training courses (CAS in EU Law at the University of Zurich, mediation at the Constance School of Mediation, in-depth business mediation, leadership training, etc.).   

At the beginning of my career I completed internships in courts at various levels (district and high court) and in public administration.
