In the interview, Catherine describes the administrative and cultural shortfalls, which are holding women back in the legal profession in Switzerland but also points out ways in which gender representation barriers can be meaningfully broken down.

Catherine further describes the importance of fostering talented female lawyers on their way to partnership and how NKF is enabling these career paths for female lawyers.
