Our law firm was founded in 2002 through the merger of the law offices of Dr. iur. Dr. Dr. h.c. Gerard Batliner and Dr. Martin Batliner with the two lawyers Dr. Ralph Wanger and Dr. Christian Batliner.
In the following years, the partnership was further expanded to include lic. iur. Hansjörg Lingg (2008), lic. iur. Markus Wille (2014) and most recently Mag. iur. Michael Kranz (2023), MLaw Philipp Kranz (2023) and lic. iur. Christine Tinner-Rampone (2023). As a result, our law firm can look back on a history of several decades of extensive legal practice in Liechtenstein. This practice has strongly shaped us as a law firm, and at the same time we have been able to contribute to the continuous development of Liechtenstein law by obtain-ing numerous leading judgements.
Due to the steady growth of our law firm, we have evolved in recent years from a predomi-nantly forensic law firm into a full-service law firm that is able to offer its clients the entire range of legal services and co-operates with specialist partners from other areas in a tar-geted manner. At the same time, the size of our firm has allowed us to build up particular expertise in important areas of law, making us one of the few law firms in Liechtenstein to have genuine specialisations and corresponding practice groups.
Although our law firm handles mandates with cross-border connections and major economic implications on a regular basis, we attach the greatest importance to looking after our local clients and consider ourselves to be firmly rooted in Liechtenstein. In this spirit, our employ-ees often make themselves available for positions in politics, the judiciary, state-owned en-terprises and Liechtenstein's business sector.
We pay great attention to which mandates we accept and which we do not. In addition to purely legal assessments, we also work on mandates we accept with an understanding of the big picture and remain committed, particularly in difficult phases. We consciously maintain a co-operative relationship with the authorities and courts.
