OUR STORY

The firm was originally set up in 2011 by founding partners Peter Fenech and Simon Galea Testaferrata as IURIS Malta Advocates, with the aim of bringing together a well-knit team of lawyers, all of whom had worked together for a number of years, to provide a highly professional, yet flexible service to the firm’s clients.

OUR ROOTS

Like many other law firms in Malta, IURIS has its roots in general civil and commercial law and the members of its team are all well-versed in these pillars of law. The firm has also evolved throughout the years, responding to social, financial and technological developments by expanding its fields of practice in many other areas of law, including among others, corporate law, financial services, intellectual property and equality law. Today the firm comprises IURIS Consult Limited, through which it provides corporate and financial services, IURIS Trustees Limited, through which it provides fiduciary services, and IURIS Advocates, which serves the more traditional civil and commercial law areas of practice.

OUR PASSION

Driven by a genuine interest in the law, our dedicated team of lawyers aims to put all of its resources and knowledge at our clients’ disposal to help them obtain the best possible results. Our philosophy is best summed up in Jean de la Fontaine’s words: “By the work, one knows the workman”.

OUR OFFICES

Situated in the heart of Malta’s historic capital city, Valletta, within two minutes’ walking distance from the Courts of Justice, our offices occupy a unique period Valletta property which has been painstakingly and expertly restored and houses all of our lawyers and employees under one roof.

OUR TEAM

All of our lawyers have a solid foundation in the more traditional areas of civil and commercial law, while the team has now expanded, evolved and specialised in various non-traditional practice areas to provide a more comprehensive professional legal service to our clients. The experience, familiarity and flexibility of our team has enabled us to efficiently and effectively exceed our clients’ expectations.
