Advokaturbureau Ritter & Wohlwend
Our partnership of lawyers was formed in 1978 as one of the first partnerships of lawyers in Liechtenstein and is today part of Liechtenstein’s leading firms. We are following a long-standing tradition in the legal profession - now in the fourth generation -, which started in the early 20th century in Innsbruck with Dr. Martin Ritter and was continued with Dr. iur et Dr. rer. pol. Friedrich Ritter in the 1950s in Liechtenstein. We can therefore look back to extensive experience in consulting and representation in court.The considerable changes which the Principality of Liechtenstein has experienced since 1945 have also had a large influence on our activities as lawyers, the international economic upswing of the post-war years having a lasting influence on our field of activities, in particular in the field of financial services. This tendency to specialise in view of the ever-increasing complexity of cases, has led to the development of high standing expertise in the areas of corporate law, foundation and trust law, banking and finance, law on investment vehicles as well as administrative law and mutual legal assistence law. Beside we offer a long standing experience in litigation and arbitration. In our consulting activities, it is our supreme objective to come to tailored, individual, and economically feasible solutions for our clients.
