At the beginning of 2002 the law firm of Dr. iur. Dr. Dr. h.c. Gerard Batliner & Dr. Martin Batliner, Vaduz, and the two lawyers Dr. Ralph Wanger and Dr. Christian Batliner joined forces to establish the law firm of BATLINER WANGER BATLINER Rechtsanwälte, Vaduz, which was organised as a partnership.
Dr. Gerard Batliner began working as an independent attorney-at-law in 1956, and admitted his son Dr. Martin Batliner to the law firm as a partner in the year 1995. While Dr. Ralph Wanger headed his own law firm in Schaan prior to the merger that created the partnership, Dr. Christian Batliner had been a partner in a law firm that was likewise based in Schaan.
The law firm has grown steadily each year since the beginning of the partnership. In early 2008, the law firm partnership was extended to include a fourth partner, lic. iur. Hansjörg Lingg. For the five years prior to this, Hansjörg Lingg had worked as a trainee lawyer at the law firm. He previously worked for several years as a member of the government’s legal team in the EEA field, and as a research associate at a university institute in the field of international business law.
In September 2008, the law firm was converted from an ordinary partnership into a corporation. In October 2014, lic. iur. Markus Wille joined the law firm as an additional partner. Prior to this, he worked for a number of years at another Liechtenstein law firm. BATLINER WANGER BATLINER now employs a dozen lawyers and several legal assistants.
