For more than 60 years, Gasser Partner’s domestic and international clients have relied upon the firm for sustainable, long-term solutions - solutions which they have developed with a team of experienced attorneys. In such work, Gasser Partner enjoys the benefit of relations which have stood the test of time with the most prestigious law firms across the world. Gasser Partner always takes pains to offer immediate, efficient assistance. It is especially committed to transnational issues, which require a high level of foreign language proficiency and sound financial and business understanding.
For many years - and now jointly with First Advisory Group, one of the largest trust companies in Liechtenstein - Gasser Partner has been publishing the quarterly “Memo to Clients” in German and English - a vehicle in which it discusses the current trends and court decisions pertinent to Liechtenstein law. Gasser Partner published in 2013 the first practice commentary on Liechtenstein Foundation Law. Frequent academic contributions by the firm’s members in national and international publications further strengthen the firm’s expert status. Gasser Partner dedicates itself exclusively to playing the ‘classic’ attorney’s role, which has allowed the firm to preserve its independence. This is of benefit to the firm’s clients, especially in disputes involving foundations, trusts, liability of board members, securing of assets, etc. Gasser Partner’s attorneys are well trained in commercial and financial transactions and they are familiar with the pitfalls and the tricks of the trade upon which the success of legal proceedings depends. As a law firm offering purely forensic services, Gasser Partner is not only one of the oldest but also the largest law firm in Liechtenstein.
