reistration as a foreign lawyer ?

Hello,
I am an Irish solicitor also admitted to the roll in England. I am starting a new job in Switzerland with a pharma multi-national shortly as commercial legal counsel. I understand that I should register as a foreign lawyer with the Kantonal bar association in order to practice, just wondering if any EF members have done this ? I have heard that some english lawyers prefer to continue to be registered in england but then you need to comply with the CPD and filing etc. Grateful for any views or comments, thanks.

As a rule, inhouse counsel are not permitted to register with any cantonal bar. A prerquisite for registration is being independent, which an inhouse counsel is not.

Send me a PM if you are interested in hearing the exceptions of the rule...
