Liechtenstein

Editorial

Legal market overview

An economically stable country historically dominated by the financial services industry, particularly the fiduciary business sector, Liechtenstein remains an attractive jurisdiction for the establishment and operation of trusts and foundations.

The country continues to move in line with the global trend towards tax transparency, having signed numerous Tax Information Exchange Agreements (TIEAs). Its longstanding relationship with Switzerland was further strengthened by the signing of a revised double tax agreement between the two countries in July 2015.

The majority of law firms have an association or form part of an umbrella network with a trust company or financial services provider. One firm which has broken away from this traditional model is advocatio Rechtsanwälte Grabher Dür, which functions solely as a law firm to domestic and international clients.

Well-established firms with a strong presence in the market include Gasser Partner (formerly known as Batliner Gasser); Batliner Wanger Batliner Rechtsanwälte AG; Sele Frommelt & Partner Attorneys at Law Ltd; and Lampert & Partner Attorneys at Law Ltd.
