Our law firm was established in 1947 by Pierre Bolomey and Georges Derron. It currently has five partners, all of whom are registered in the Canton of Vaud Attorney registry, plus one associate and one trainee attorney.
Together, our complementary experience and training allows us to cover all areas of law. We benefit from our collective expertise and the resources that each of us has developed in his or her preferred field of law.

Our concept of a mandate is that of a privileged relationship with our client, for whom we offer personalized handling of their case with the utmost dedication.
The mandate, which is the contract binding the lawyer to their client, implies on our part the obligation to deploy a legal advisory activity that will allow you to find a solution, judicial or otherwise, to your problem. However, active support from the client is clearly essential to the smooth running of the case. In order to make your first appointment as easy as possible, here are some pointers:
For a first meeting, depending on the circumstances, remember to take with you:
• The previous court decisions which relate to the case in question,
• Your family record book or a certificate of civil status,
• Your pay slips,
• Your last income tax return,
• Your rental agreement,
• Your health insurance accounts,
• Any contracts that bind you to the other parties,
• The minutes of any inquiry or hearing,
• Any debtor acknowledgments of debts.
Unless otherwise specified, copies are sufficient.
Take your family record book, marriage certificate and civil status certificate, your last pay slips and those of your spouse (if possible), your latest income tax return, proof of your transport costs, your rental agreement (or if you own a property, proof of your expenses), your health insurance policies and any loan contracts. If applicable, take all documents relating to your children.
We will need the contract and its endorsements (annexes) as well as any correspondence exchanged between you and the other party.
You should bring with you the correspondence exchanged with the Public Prosecutor's office and the Tribunal, and if you have been a victim of an unlawful act, a statement of the expenses and damages that resulted (hospital bills, repair costs, loss of earnings, etc.).
You should take with you the documents that form the basis for your claim (debt recognition, rental agreement, etc.) and if applicable, the original summons to pay.
The remuneration for our services is essentially a function of the number of hours spent on your case, plus the difficulty and outcome of the case. These are, in principle, covered by the payment of one or more provisions. If you have legal protection insurance, you should check whether your case is covered. If your income and fortune do not allow you to bear the costs of the procedure, you have the right to apply for legal aid, granted under certain conditions for civil, criminal and administrative matters.It is important to determine from the outset how your costs will be paid, because our concern is also to defend this aspect of your interests.
If you have legal protection insurance, it is essential to inform your lawyer during the first interview. Indeed, if your case is covered by your legal protection insurance, in general, the claim must be declared immediately. Depending upon the contractual conditions specific to each insurance contract and subject to the acceptance of the coverage by your insurance, the expenses and fees will be borne by the latter.
