VU Introduction to Liechtenstein Corporate and Company Law
VU 2

Participants are familiar with the fundamentals of Liechtenstein corporate and company law.

Although Liechtenstein is a small country with 160 km2 and about 40,000 inhabitants, it has a specialized, internationally recognized stable financial center. Liechtenstein company law plays an essential role in this regard, which - in addition to its primary task of providing suitable legal forms for the economy - is also intended to fulfill the function of attracting foreign capital by offering attractive opportunities for asset management. Against this background, the lecture gives in a first part - after a short introduction to Liechtenstein (private) law - an overview of Liechtenstein company law. The focus will be on the most important legal forms in practice, such as public limited company, establishment, foundation and the Trust. As a second part,the lecture gives an overview of the main legal framework in the areas of private banking/wealth management/asset management and collective investment management (funds). Finally, aspects of digitalization (the Tokens and TT Service Providers Law - "TVTG") will be discussed as well.

Lecture and discussion. The focus of the lecture is determined by the interests of the participants.

Presentations, contributions to discussions and written or oral exam at the end of the semester.

Will be announced in the course.

Prior knowledge of Liechtenstein law is not required. Prior knowledge of Austrian business law is helpful, but also not a requirement.
