Our Corporate and Commercial practice is an important pillar of our law firm. Our experts regularly advise clients on all matters regarding the formation, migration, reorganization and restructuring of all types of legal entities under Liechtenstein law. Over the last decades, our firm has been involved in a large number of major M&A projects relating to Liechtenstein. Our team is particularly experienced in transactions involving regulated entities (such as banks, insurance undertakings and fintech service providers), Liechtenstein holding entities and industrial enterprises some of which are large domestic employers or subsidiaries of foreign listed corporations. We are also accustomed to cooperate with foreign law firms on multi-jurisdictional transactions – service-mindedness is part of our firm's DNA.

Since most of the larger transactions which involve Liechtenstein are of cross-border nature, it is a considerable advantage that the team's lawyers are qualified and/or admitted in several jurisdictions (Liechtenstein, Switzerland, New York, England and Wales, Ireland, Germany, California and Austria) and multi-lingual. As one of the largest Liechtenstein law firms, we not only have the required expertise but also the necessary resources to handle the most complex international transactions.

Our corporate & commercial team also advises our local and international corporate clients on their daily legal affairs (such as labour law, compliance, product liability, intellectual property law, data protection and general contract law).
