Fenech & Fenech Advocates
Fenech and Fenech is probably the oldest law firm on the Island, and can be traced back to 1891 when the late Constantino Fenech L.P. started his legal practice as a solicitor. In 1915, the late Dr Tommaso Fenech LL.D. graduated and commenced to practice law continuing in the footsteps of his uncle. In 1955, the late Dr Joseph Fenech B.A. (Hons.), LL.D., obtained his doctorate in law and his warrant to practice at the Maltese Bar. Dr. Joseph Fenech was also one of Malta's most prominent politicians occupying ministerial posts for Maritime Affairs and Justice.The number of partners increased in 1981 when Dr Mark Fenech LL.D., Dr Edward Debono LL.D., and Dr Kenneth Grima LL.D. joined the firm. The firm was then joined by Dr Tonio Fenech LL.M. (Lond.), LL.D in 1987, who resigned from the firm in November 2008. Dr Ann Fenech LL.M. (Lond.), LL.D. joined the firm as partner in 1992 with a brief to create a Marine Litigation Department. Dr Rosanne Bonnici LL.D. joined the firm in 1998 as tax partner. In early 2002 Dr. Nicolai Vella Falzon LL.M. (Lond.), LL.D., was appointed partner of the firm in the Corporate Commercial department.The firm saw a rapid expansion in the mid eighties in the areas of international law, such as maritime law, ship and asset finance, corporate finance, investments and securities law, corporate law, merges and acquisition as well as international tax planning and the use of Maltese corporate and trust vehicles for the more rational structuring of business and financing activities in international operations.Fenech & Fenech is today a recognised leader in a number of areas including Shipping and Maritime Law, International Trade, Financial Services and IT Law.The firm is heavily departmentalised and offers services in Art Law, Aviation Law, Company Law, Corporate Finance & Capital Markets, E-Commerce, Entertainment law and contracts, Data Protection, I.T. & Telecoms, Financial Services, Intellectual Property, International Trade Law, Litigation, Marine Litigation, Property Law, Ship Registration & Finance, Taxation, Trusts in Malta, Yacht Leasing and relative VAT payments in Malta.

Furthermore, a number of service companies that form the Fenlex Group of Companies were incorporated as subsidiaries of the firm in order to ensure that the firm's clientele could benefit from even more comprehensive services.
