Firm Overview:

König Rebholz Zechberger Attorneys at law were founded as a spin-off of another Liechtenstein law office in January 2015. The desire to work on a more independent and client-focused basis led to the decision of the three founding partners to set up their own office. In contrast to many other law offices, König Rebholz Zechberger are not associated or indirectly connected with a trust-service provider or another financial intermediary.

Many years of practice in Liechtenstein with national and international clients, a well-established network together with the flexibility of a boutique office drive their desire to shape the perfect solution for each and every client.

Together the partners cover all major aspects of Liechtenstein law, with a clear focus on forensic matters (private client litigation) and regulatory law (banking, investment funds, etc.). Being specialists in their fields of material law and their experience in litigation and arbitration form the basis of their everyday work.
