Ganado Advocates is a leading commercial law firm with a particular focus on the corporate, financial services and maritime/aviation sectors, predominantly servicing international clients doing business through Malta. The firm also promotes other areas such as tax, pensions, intellectual property, employment and litigation. The firm traces its roots back to the early 1900s, and is today one of Malta’s foremost law practices, consistently ranking as a leading firm in all its core sectors. Ganado Advocates has over the past decades contributed directly towards creating and enhancing Malta’s hard-won reputation as a reliable and effective international centre for financial and maritime services. Today, the firm continues to provide high standards of legal advisory services to support and enhance Malta’s offering.
Ganado Advocates was a prime mover in the development of local aviation law and was responsible for the drafting of the Aircraft Registration Act of 2010 and instrumental in advising Malta to accede to the Cape Town Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment and its Aircraft Protocol – factors that are highly valued by financiers.
The firm’s aviation team regularly advises aircraft financiers, owners, lessors and operators. We also assist buyers and sellers with aircraft transactions of all sizes and levels of complexity. Our depth and industry know-how in all aviation finance related matters means that we are often the first choice for all matters related to security interests over aircraft registered in Malta as well as structuring air-finance deals through various methods including syndicated loans and securitisation.
The aviation team liaises with leading practice heads from complementary practice areas such as tax, corporate, banking and finance and capital markets in order to offer our clients a fully-integrated legal advisory service.
