Marriage in Switzerland - bringing new wife here

Dear All,
I am hoping to get married to my Russian girlfriend in the quite near future. The date etc. has not been 100% defined yet but I think we are going to get married in Moscow.
I was wondering if anyone knew about the possibility of me bringing her back here with me after our marriage as my wife, and whether she would also be able get a residence / work permit. She is very qualified and is currently the marketing director of a multi-national property company in Moscow. I am a British Citizen and I am on a B permit and have lived in Switzerland for 4 years.
Any advice you could offer me or if you know of an organisation I could speak to that would be able to advise me on the possibility of this would be much appreciated.
With many thanks for your help

Answer is quite simple, you would have to apply for a family reunification visa (all details shown on the website of the Swiss Embassy in Moscow). Provided the marriage is legitimate and all requirements are fulfilled, she will get a Schengen visa and will be entitled to a dependent B permit with all the rights you currently have with your EU/EFTA B Permit (work/residency).
