Articles-of-association-in-Liechtenstein.jpgOpening a company in Liechtenstein implies various steps and several requirements imposed by the Commercial Law. The first step to register a company in Lichtenstein is to choose the business form and then to prepare its statutory documents which are also known as the memorandum of association and the articles of association. However, the law provides for the articles of association as mandatory documents for creating a company in Liechtenstein.

Our company formation agents in Lichtenstein offer full company registration services, among which the preparation of the articles of association.
