What we do, works.

We are workplace lawyers, assisting employers & employees on all work-related matters.

Who are we?

The thing about us is that we only do employment law.

Let’s paraphrase that: we do employment law, and it’s a field that’s becoming increasingly complex.

We deal with work from home scenarios, the right to disconnect, the four-day week, the GIG economy, and platform workers, to name a few. That’s because we’re at the forefront of the issues that will be shaping employment for years to come.

There are several excellent lawyers in Malta, but not many are disruptors. That’s what we consider ourselves, because we have the right blend of innovative thinking and years of experience to our name. In fact, all our lawyers have more than 10 years of hands-on experience.

We’re not the biggest firm in Malta. The biggest thing about us is our commitment towards you: we’ll be available when you need us, and we’ll provide you with a tailored, personalized service.

Whether you’re an employee or an employer, we’ll make sure you make the most of your talent.

When do you need us?


The race for talent is more intense than ever. Whilst the eagerness of employers and employees to grab a good opportunity when it arises is acknowledged, the recruitment process should be approached carefully. Interviews, pre-employment testing, job descriptions, residence and work permits can all be daunting tasks and are frequently overlooked. See how we can assist.

During employment

After employment

A claim can be filed when an employee considers that he was treated unfairly, or his employment was unlawfully terminated. The contract of employment may also include non-compete, non-solicitation and other restrictive clauses which are aimed at restricting the conduct of the employee after termination of the employment relationship.
