Bender Brothers & Co. supports an arbitration and research centre specialising in fiduciary disputes.  The body, known as the International Trust Arbitration Organisation or ITAO (, may conduct proceedings at its office in Liechtenstein as if they were held in another country as the Principality’s legislation allows opposing parties to choose the legal seat of arbitration as well as the applicable rules for dispute resolution. Such flexibility makes it possible to choose an optimal ADR framework whilst enjoying the benefits of a tax neutral European location with strict confidentiality laws and a developed infrastructure.  Being a UN and EEA country with a population of only 39,000, Liechtenstein has political and regulatory institutions that can be far more responsive than most jurisdictions.  ITAO has direct access to the world's leading trust arbitration expertise in various jurisdictions.
