Corporate and M&A

Corporate and M&A

Practice Area Overview

In view of its strong regulatory framework and competitive taxation regime, Malta has established itself as an attractive European jurisdiction for the incorporation of corporate structures as well as the migration (re-domiciliation) of existing structures.

Moreover, with its basis on English company law as shaped by the various applicable European Directives, Maltese company law has adapted in a manner that allows stakeholders to implement the ownership and governance structures that suit even their more demanding requirements. The fact that the law is published in the English language and that the English text prevails over the Maltese one in case of conflict also means that clients and practitioners working on an international transaction literally speak the same language and have the comfort of working with a law that is drafted in that language.

The corporate and M&A team at Mamo TCV is consistently ranked in the top-tier of all legal directories. We work with some of the largest and most successful companies – both domestically and internationally – as well as a significant number of international law firms in advising on all aspects of corporate and commercial law, including incorporation and structuring of corporate groups, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, shareholder disputes and corporate re-organisations. We have also been involved in a number of the most high-value and complex transactions in Malta.

Our emphasis on research, practical experience and strong international network also allow us to find the optimal solutions for clients in any matter they may engage us to assist on.

The corporate team also works closely with a number of other teams in the firm – particularly in M&A transactions and corporate litigation, thus ensuring that all angles of any brief are handled by experts in their field.
