Areas of Practice
We represent your interests before the courts and authorities in Liechtenstein and Austria
Banking, Insurance, Investment Funds
Providers are faced with a huge number of recent and forthcoming regulatory requirements. We advise on and assist in implementing structures and processes and assist in structuring funds on the basis of Liechtenstein’s somewhat unique regulatory landscape. We also offer advice with regard to the impact these new rules may have on your relationship with customers, business partners and service providers. We deal with the regulatory authorities on your behalf and represent your interests in court.
Foundations, Trusts and Corporate Law
Our lawyers are experienced in the specifics of Liechtenstein Foundations, Trusts, Establishments and other types of legal entity. With many years of experience advising trust service providers as well as representing beneficiaries, heirs, foundation council members, trustees etc. in and out of court, we not only know the legal fieldwork and pitfalls but also how things are handled in practice.
We further advise our clients with regard to succession planning and probate.
We can advise and assist you in all aspects of structuring succession in your business and in the sale, acquisition and restructuring of companies or business units. We provide guidance throughout the entire process, starting with initial ideas, throughout negotiations and on to the drafting and implementation of contracts pre- and post-closing.
Litigation / Arbitration / White Collar Crime
We provide comprehensive services in litigation and arbitration and advise and represent our clients before the courts in civil and criminal proceedings. All our lawyers benefit from many years’ practice and have accumulated sound experience in complex cases of national and international litigation.
We are used to thoroughly analysing our client’s specific situation: we provide a breakdown of the risks and opportunities, strengths and weaknesses before determining with the client the most promising strategy.
White Collar Crime cases require sound expertise in order to understand the interaction of their financial and legal aspects. Our lawyers are not only experienced in advising and representing suspects but also in safeguarding the interests of an aggrieved party.
Growing levels of globalization entail an increasing necessity for international tax planning.
We advise our clients with regard to all aspects of Liechtenstein’s individual and corporate taxation and represent them before the Liechtenstein tax authorities (e.g. in negotiating tax rulings or tax litigation). It is our goal to prearrange with the Liechtenstein tax authorities clear and optimized solutions in advance of a transaction.
Due to our network of tax professionals in various jurisdictions and our sound knowledge of Liechtenstein corporate law we are in a position to advise our clients in setting up optimized and tax-compliant tailor-made corporate structures or to support them in regularizing existing structures in the clients’ home jurisdictions. We further advise and represent our clients in International Mutual Legal Assistance proceedings.
Public and administrative law increasingly impacts all fields of business – not only those directly dealing with the administration and/or public authorities but also between private parties.
We use our knowledge and experience to advise our clients on aspects of public law and represent them before Liechtenstein authorities.
Our services include:
- Trade and Industry Law
- Financial Regulatory Law
- Domiciliation of Corporations and Individuals
- Construction Law, Transfer of Property
- International Mutual Legal and Administrative Assistance
- European Law
- Telecommunication Law
- Data protection
Employment and Social Security Law
A sound understanding and application of the provisions of employment law is crucial for both entrepreneurs and employees. Our lawyers have extensive experience and expertise in advising and representing either side. We can also advise and represent you in social security matters where European standards and cross-border elements play an important role.
IP and IT
Liechtenstein provides interesting intellectual property opportunities, such as the transfer of copyrights. Liechtenstein’s favourable taxation offers opportunities to increase revenues from patents, trademarks, designs and medical databases. We also draft individual, client-specific information technology solutions.
Real Estate and Lease
Liechtenstein is a country with particularly limited real estate resources. You will not only profit from our legal assistance but also from our network of contacts if you intend to acquire or sell real estate in Liechtenstein and the bordering regions.
