We represent private and corporate clients in a wide range of contentious and non-contentious matters before Liechtenstein courts as well as national and international arbitral tribunals.

The better part of our dispute resolution team's work relates to disputes concerning:

  • trusts, foundations and other private asset structures, with our firm representing a wide variety of possible stakeholders, such as founders, settlors, beneficiaries, creditors and professional fiduciary service providers;
  • international estates;
  • professional liability claims (in particular against professional service providers)Ā and
  • insurance companies, banks and other financial intermediaries, with our firm representing financial intermediaries and their contractual counterparties alike.

In recent years, we have been particularly busy handling trust- and foundation-related disputes. Our firm regularly represents settlors/founders and beneficiaries of Liechtenstein trusts and foundations who are dissatisfied with the way professional fiduciary service providers administer "their" trusts and foundations. In many cases we have been able to effect the replacement of the undesirable fiduciary service provider by a new fiduciary service provider trusted by our respective clients.

Most of the disputes handled by our firm are not limited to Liechtenstein but are of a multi-jurisdictional nature. In many of these cases we not only advise our clients on those aspects of the matters relevant to Liechtenstein but also assist our clients in the strategical and tactical coordination of their actions in other jurisdictions involved. The close working relations our firm maintains with leading foreign firms and barristers are a great asset and guarantee that our clients are provided with highest-quality legal services throughout.
