Marxer & Partner Attorneys-at-Law was very much involved in shaping Liechtenstein as a financial centre and has been growing with it. Established in 1925, the firm is the oldest and largest law firm in Liechtenstein with 14 partners, four of-counsels, 13 associates and a supporting staff of about 60 paralegals and administrative specialists. Of all the firms providing legal services to a demanding international clientele, Marxer & Partner has become the most renowned in Liechtenstein.
The Principality of Liechtenstein is a small European country in the heart of Europe whose economy has continuously grown over the years. Its membership in the European Economic Area (EEA), on the one hand, and its close links to Switzerland, on the other hand, have paved the way for extensive activities of foreign investors in the industrial, business, and finance sector. Today, Liechtenstein can provide special qualities as an economic base, mainly because of the great political stability, the excellent infrastructure and efficient administration, and the modern and liberal legislation.
As a matter of fact, Liechtenstein has succeeded in acquiring an excellent reputation for its high-tech industry including leadingedge technology companies like Hilti and Ivoclar, and its robust and well- functioning financial center, the standards of which, as the International Monetary Fund confirms, meet the latest and highest level of compliance and proper business conduct.
