Malta has become a hub for international businesses that have opted to incorporate or redomicile their corporate structures. By way of its strong regulatory framework, Malta has fast developed into one of the most attractive European jurisdictions for new corporate structures and redomiciliation.

The island offers an extensive range of corporate vehicles such as companies, limited partnerships, European companies (societas europaea), trusts and foundations. Malta’s parliament recognises the importance of business success to the nation’s prosperity and thus is committed to developing key industries, such as financial services, blockchain, ICT, shipping and aviation, as well as to attracting more direct foreign investment (FDI).

Ganado Advocates’ credentials as a business law firm are long established. We act for a large number of corporate clients and regularly advises on various corporate law and commercial law matters – from company restructuring, legal due diligence, cross-border mergers, joint ventures, public service contracts and partnerships, to company dissolution and liquidation.

We provide both the legal analysis and administrative support required for successful corporate start-ups, company formation and continue to assist in relation to applicable legal and regulatory requirements. We are regularly involved in a number of local and international mergers and acquisitions, including some of the largest and most complex transactions.

We work closely with our colleagues in several of the other practice areas and draw on the firm’s resources to meet clients’ overall requirements, in particular, in respect of employment, corporate finance and tax, investment services and funds, banking and finance, data protection, intellectual property, litigation and competition.
