For fifty years, our domestic and international clients have relied on us for sustainable and long-term solutions – solutions which we develop with a team of experienced attorneys. In this process, we benefit from our proven and time-tested relations with the most prestigious law firms in all countries of the world with which we have been working successfully for decades. We always take pains to offer immediate and efficient help. We are especially committed to transnational issues, which require a high level of foreign language proficiency and a sound financial and business understanding. Every issue creates an extraordinary challenge for each of us. But we are confident that, together with our clients, we can master every challenge:

Because . . . Solutions may be closer than they appear ©.


Most attorneys in Liechtenstein practice and act exclusively as trustees. They specialize in the formation and management of domiciled companies and holding companies. They usually do not offer forensic services, i.e., consulting and representation of clients before courts of law and authorities. We, however, dedicate ourselves exclusively to playing the “classic” attorney’s role, which has allowed us to preserve our independence. This benefits our clients especially in disputes involving trust transactions (foundations, institutions, trusts, liability of administrative boards, securing of assets etc.). Nevertheless, our attorneys are still well trained in trust transactions, and they are familiar with the tricks and errors on which the success of a legal proceeding depends. As a law firm offering purely forensic services, we are not only one of the oldest but also the largest law firms in Liechtenstein.


Of course we have developed strong specializations over the years. But we attach great importance to providing comprehensive service to our numerous clients, both domestic and international – exactly the way we did fifty years ago when our firm was founded. Our areas of specialization are therefore not limited to a select few. Continued education and training of our team in all areas of the law is considered a must in our firm. And we are even intent on contributing to an enrichment of Liechtenstein law by way of scientific contributions. For many years – and now jointly with one of the largest trust companies in Liechtenstein, the First Advisory Group – we have been publishing the quarterly “Memo to Clients” in German, English, French and Italian – a vehicle in which we discuss current trends or court decisions pertinent to Liechtenstein law. The complete set of our "Memo to Clients" is posted on our website, together with search indexes, so you can quickly and easily get an overview of our legal system.

Our last publication was the first introduction to Liechtenstein civil and arbitration proceedings (Litigation and Arbitration in Liechtenstein, Staempfli Verlag Bern 2004), which we co-authored with the former president of the Liechtenstein Supreme Court.
