In 1996, I completed my bilingual (German / French) studies at the University of Fribourg with a Master of Law (lic. iur. utr.; magna cum laude), and in 1998, I was admitted to the Bar of the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland. In 2017, I received a doctorate (Dr. iur.) from the University of Lucerne.

Before founding my own law firm, at the beginning of 2016, I worked for 20 years in renowned companies as external as well as in-house counsel. The quotations below from references illustrate the many years of practical training that I received before I became self-employed. 

"Mr. Haberbeck exhibited an extraordinary ability to gather and synthesize a great deal of material about complex transactions, and to share his analyses and insights regarding those transactions both orally and in writing in a manner that was of enormous value to the others on the engagement teams. He was very focused, extremely conscientious, and efficient." (Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle, New York; October 2003)
