Practice Groups : Commercial

The Commercial Practice Group advises on matters across the commercial law spectrum including competition, joint ventures, international commercial agreements, franchising, agency and distribution contracts.

We also advise on infrastructure projects and public procurement and have experience of both Government-side and bidder-side privatisation work including vendor and purchaser due diligence. We advise on projects and concession contracts in various sectors including energy and represent various trade organisations and bodies including the tuna fish farming industry.

While traditionally acting for ship owners in contentious matters, our Commercial Practice Group increasingly advises on non-contentious maritime work principally the registration of ships and yachts under the Maltese flag on behalf of domestic and international owners. The Commercial Practice Group is also well placed to advise on aviation and aircraft registration. Working closely with our Corporate & Finance Practice Group, the Commercial Practice Group also advises on asset finance and security.

We advise on a broad range of matters in relation to real estate and construction. Together with the Firm's other practice groups, the Commercial Practice Group advises developers, contractors, private clients as well as lenders on real estate acquisition and finance, construction contracts, title and construction disputes and planning issues.

The Commercial Practice Group also advises on trademark and patent registration and licensing issues and in conjunction with the Dispute Resolution Practice Group on claims regarding intellectual property infringements.
