6 ABOUT LIECHTENSTEIN I. Liechtenstein Having been a sovereign country for more than 200 years, Liechtenstein today presents itself as a modern state which is situated geographically at the heart of Europe. Liechtenstein is proud of its long-standing tradition of maintaining memberships in supranational organizations. Today, the country actively participates in the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and the WTO. Since 1995, Liechtenstein has also been a member state of the Treaty on the European Economic Area (EEA). Located in the picturesque Rhine Valley between Switzerland and Austria, Liechtenstein's economy is technologically advanced and innovative. With its industry today employing the largest part of the working population, Liechtenstein has developed from a country whose population mainly worked in the agricultural sector to the highest industrialized country with a most diversified economy. The financial services sector plays a significant role within the Liechtenstein economy. Liechtenstein maintains the highest international standards in the regulation of its financial sector. As a result of its favorable legislative framework, Liechtenstein today is not only an important financial center but has attracted many industrial and commercial undertakings, a great number of which represent foreign groups of companies which are internationally acknowledged leaders in their fields. Some of these undertakings pursue highly specialized activities and also maintain key niche positions in their markets. II. The Liechtenstein Legal System To a greater extent than its neighbors, Liechtenstein needs to harmonize the rapid pace of international legislative developments with its slim bureaucracy and legislative resources. Set against this background, the Liechtenstein legislator has always striven to pursue, to the greatest extent possible, a liberal approach to the regulation of business activities. In a nutshell, the Liechtenstein legal system is based on four very influential pillars: The Austrian Influence For centuries, but particularly during the 19th century, the key areas of civil and criminal law (including the respective procedural rules) were gradually taken over from Austrian law. This process is ongoing. The structure and practice of the Liechtenstein court system is a prime example of the long standing influence which Austrian law has had on the Liechtenstein legal system. Page 6

7 The Swiss Element Following the implementation of the customs and currency arrangements with Switzerland in the 20th century, an increased assumption of Swiss law has occurred. However, the areas of Swiss law of relevance (adopted either by amendment and embodiment in Liechtenstein statute or by direct appliance by the Liechtenstein courts of Swiss law and court decisions) have mostly been confined to laws of a typically economic background. As a result, the Swiss element has influenced areas such as Liechtenstein's general company law, property law, labour law (including healthcare and pensions/social security) and a number of business statutes of regulatory nature including those relating to banking. European Passporting by Membership to the EEA As a member of the EEA since 1995, Liechtenstein today implements all EU-directives which have an EEA-relevance. EU-directives relating to judicial issues and tax harmonization do not fall within the scope of the EEA. This process has on the one hand not only brought many regulatory Liechtenstein laws (such as the Insurance Act, the Banking Act, the Law on Investment Enterprises etc.) into line with EU law, but today also permits increased passporting opportunities for Liechtenstein banks, insurers, investment undertakings and other companies. As Liechtenstein's approach to European integration was different and more directly receptive, as opposed to the restrictive ''à la carte'' approach adopted by its important partner Switzerland, the bilateral relationship between the two countries had to be adjusted. Today, the principle of ''parallel marketability'' ensures that Liechtenstein benefits from a two-fold symbiosis: with Switzerland on the one hand and with the EEA on the other. As a result, goods conforming to Swiss standards as well as those conforming to EEA standards may be traded in Liechtenstein. A Unique Heritage Notwithstanding these foreign influences, Liechtenstein law also rests on a broad autonomous pillar which underpins most of Liechtenstein's public laws and also one of the country's core pieces of legislation, the Persons and Companies Act. The latter has been a key factor in the meteoric and highly successful economic development of the country. The Persons and Companies Act also constitutes the basis for Liechtenstein trusts which play a significant role in the international estate planning and asset protection market. Liechtenstein trust law was modelled along the lines of both the Anglo-Saxon common law trust, with the pertinent legislation having similar features to the English codifying legislation including the Trustee Act of 1925, and with a variant based on the Massachusetts business trust. Thus, the Liechtenstein trust today both reflects and benefits from the influence of Anglo-American Common law and its worthy traditions. In conclusion because of the above influences, the Liechtenstein courts have tended to take into account foreign authorities when dealing with cases of cross-border dimension. Such cases are widespread in everyday Liechtenstein legal practice, due to the country's diversified population and economy, with many international links, and the large number of foreign-controlled legal entities based here.
