The corporate law of Liechtenstein, codified in the Persons and Companies Act [Personen- und Gesellschaftsrecht or PGR] dates back to the year 1926. It has been amended several times but in 2009 with special emphasis on foundation law.
The PGR offers access to a diverse number of corporate structures with foundations, institutions, and corporations having gained special significance for the role which the Principality of Liechtenstein plays as international financial centre.
Moreover, as the only continental European country, the Principality of Liechtenstein has adopted the Trust of Common Law in the form of trusteeship into its legal system.
Due to its small numbers of mandatory legislative provisions in comparison to other countries, the PGR allows for ample latitude regarding individual solutions.
The right type of your legal structure depends entirely on your requirements. We are happy to determine your detailed needs and, together with you, prepare a customized solution.
