The Firm



DF Advocates is a Malta based law firm advising clients on general and complex business transactions and assisting in disputes across a range of industries and sectors.

The practice has established itself as a leading law firm covering various practice areas, including Funds and Investment Services, Banking, Corporate and Commercial, Gaming and Betting, Litigation and Arbitration, Public Procurement and Privatisation, Trust and Fiduciary Services, Real Estate, Maritime and Aviation, and Tax.

We act for international organisations, private and listed companies, funds and investment services providers, financial institutions and high net worth individuals from around the globe. Throughout the years we have assisted clients on a multitude of deals and local and cross-border transactions, including the provision of legal assistance and advice in the setting up of businesses and joint ventures, licensing and regulatory matters, mergers and acquisitions, listings, setting up of international corporate structures, and group reorganisations. We have also assisted successful bidders in acquiring and taking control of state-owned entities in the course of privatisation and tender processes.

We are committed to providing a high quality service to our clients, and constantly seek to ensure that our people are responsive and efficient. Our policy is to have at least one partner of the firm acting as lead advisor on each matter, being also the client’s point of contact. We avoid changing the people who handle our clients’ work.


To co-ordinate our clients´ projects and transactions across various jurisdictions, we have established close relationships with leading law firms around the world. Through our memberships and contacts in leading international legal services and law firm networks, we can provide our clients with quality resources and the expert local knowledge of our fellow colleagues in Europe, the USA, North Africa, the Middle East and Latin America.
