Corporate law is a fundamental part of our practice.   Compliance with all aspects of company law and regulation is fundamental for all organisations, irrespective of size or industry in which they operate in.

The different types of entities and organizations that can be setup in Malta are diverse, providing a number of possibilities for start-ups, family owned businesses and multinational enterprises alike.

Whereas the most popular entity remains the limited liability company, clients are now also able to setup trusts, foundations and other types of special purpose vehicles.

We work closely with our clients to understand their respective needs and requirements in order to ensure that the type of business entity is adequate to the needs and requirements of each particular client.

sammut.legal is also particularly strong in mergers and acquisitions, having advised on several M&A transactions over the past years.

The primary legislative instrument in corporate matters is the Companies Act, Chapter 386 of the Laws of Malta and fully transposes all EU directives and regulations into Maltese law, and is closely modeled on the UK laws.
