I was admitted to practice law in 2002 and joined the Chamber of Advocates as a member (equivalent of being admitted to the bar). I still hold membership to date.
I subsequently qualified in the specialised areas of EU and Comparative Law (Magister Juris at University of Malta) and, later, obtained my Masters in International Maritime Law (LL.M. at the IMO International Maritime Law Institute, a subsidiary of the International Maritime Organisation).I lecture at different institutes within MCAST, as well as the European Institute of Education in matters relating to maritime law. I have served as a judicial assistant at the Courts of Justice, Malta, for over three years. My main areas of practice are maritime and transport law, superyachts and aviation, civil law, commercial and corporate law, EU law in general, competition law (anti-trust), IT law and electronic communications law. I also hold a Diploma in Matrimonial Jurisprudence (Canonical Law relating to Marriages) from the Archdiocese of Malta, qualifying me to appear before the Ecclesiastical Tribunal in marriage nullity cases.
I spent a few years at the Office for Competition (Malta) which brings about a world of experience and contacts in terms of team management and international / EU relations, and also provides me with an opportunity to participate in meetings of the European Commission. I also retain my lecturing posts and continually keeps abreast with developments in my other areas of practice.
I am currently a General Manager in Corporate Services with S. Mifsud & Sons, one of of the longest established private group of companies in Malta, having its roots in the shipping business. Read more about the group here.
