Lawfirm Holzhacker was established by Dr. Gerhard Holzhacker January 2006 and is devoted to give the clients excellent legal advice and to assist them in finding well founded solutions for their legal concerns. The clients served represent private and corporate ones of domestic and mainly international origin as well as foreign state agencies seeking legal advice on Liechtenstein law. While the intent is to assist clients on all legal issues the focus lays on white collar crime issues, including criminal and civil aspects, corporate law of any kind and law on financial markets. This as it has been the case for Dr. Holzhacker many years prior to the formation of Lawfirm Holzhacker (see professional positions below). Next to it the constitution and administration of companies and trusts handled by HOST Trust reg. as entity separate from the Lawfirm has become a major focus of activity, especially with all the legal questions surrounding the same due to the ever more closely knit network of regulations, among others concerning the due diligence (anti-money laundering), the AEOI and FATCA.
