Chair Prof. Dr. Dr. Peter Sester The Lemann Foundation and the HSG have established the Lemann Chair of International Business Law and of Law and Economics at the HSG. The new legal chair of Peter Sester will deal with economics and law in Brazil and Switzerland. A B O U T T H E C H A I R The work of the chair is made possible through the financial commitment of the charitable Zurich-based Lemann Foundation (Fundação Lemann), which supports educational initiatives primarily in Brazil, the USA and now also increasingly in Switzerland. Peter Sester will extend the University’s educational network in Brazil and thus also make a contribution towards the HSG’s internationalisation, not least in close cooperation with the HSG representation in São Paulo. Educating talents in Brazil “We are pleased that the University of St.Gallen has found an excellently interconnected partner for Swiss-Brazilian research activities in the Lemann Foundation,” says HSG President Thomas Bieger. The chair was a further investment in the HSG’s relations with Latin America, which had grown historically over many years. “I’m looking forward to educating young talents and executives in and for Brazil and to cultivating lively communication between the HSG and the Latin American continent,” says Peter Sester. To this end, the Lemann Chair of International Business Law and of Law and Economics will cooperate closely with the HSG’s representation in São Paulo and the Centro Latinoamericano-Suizo de la Universidad de San Gallen (CLS-HSG).
