New Liechtenstein Foundation Law
08 - 11 February 2006
Discussions about the amendment of the foundation law were the occasion but not the only cause for an AIJA-seminar in Vaduz, the capital of the Principality of Liechtenstein. Approximately 50.000 foundations by comparison with 34’000 inhabitants show clearly the meaning of the foundation and the foundation law as a part of the “company business”. After years of preparatory work the foundation is now being carefully adjusted to the existing jurisdiction and to European legal standards, without touching the essential premises, such as discretion and suitability for asset protection.
