Marxer & Partner Attorneys-at-Law was very much involved in shaping Liechtenstein as a financial center and has been growing with it. Established in 1925, it is the oldest and largest law firm in Liechtenstein, having 13 partners, 4 of-counsels, 12 associates and a supporting staff of about 60 paralegals and administrative specialists. Of all firms providing legal services to a demanding international clientele Marxer & Partner has certainly 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 leading-edge 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.

Since many years Marxer & Partner has focused its activities on the fields of corporate law, M&A, trust and estate planning, capital markets, as well as tax. The firm provides in-depth knowledge and excellent advice in these fields to its international client base. Marxer & Partner's experienced corporate litigation team has successfully represented clients in litigation, and international arbitration proceedings complete the scope of services provided to clients.

Together with its auxiliary trust, management and auditing companies Marxer and Partner form a centre of excellence that can handle all sorts of issues in financial, legal, tax, business management, and real estate affairs.

Many of the firm’s lawyers regularly contribute to international handbooks and other publications and speak on conferences. Partners of the law firm are frequently recommended as arbitrators for complex arbitration proceedings.

Continuity, trust, and satisfaction have always been the cornerstones of the law firm's business approach, because of which it has repeatedly received prestigious awards by highly influential law directories and business magazines in such diverse areas as private law, banking, and M&A. Moreover, it has been continuously rated as a top tier firm.

The firm represents Liechtenstein exclusively at Lex Mundi, the worldwide association of independent law firms.
