Professional Experience

Jean-Philippe is co-founder and senior partner of Chetcuti Cauchi. He is Maltese in origin but has lived in the UK where he pursued further studies in international tax and economic law. He has significant experience in advising local and foreign corporations and investors in Europe. JP acts as legal counsel and tax consultant to individuals, business families and companies seeking a tax-efficient commercial or residential base in Malta. He provides advice on international tax, immigration law and estate planning matters. He was a prominent driver behind the enactment of a Family Business Act and is a leading immigration and citizenship law specialist.

He is recognized for his in-depth experience in trust and estate administration, corporate and asset protection structures and for his handling of sophisticated domestic and international transactions. Jean-Philippe is key advisor on the use of Malta & Cyprus companies, trusts, foundations, unit trusts and professional investor funds in international tax and estate planning.

His thought leadership is also recognized in the area of Maltese immigration law and he has represented a number of professional associations on policy reform issues concerning Malta's attractiveness for foreign retirees and expatriates.

Central to his role as managing partner of the firm, Jean-Philippe feels continuous client contact and thought-leadership remain central in keeping the firm focused on the opportunities and challenges faced by clients in the real world.  In addition to this, Jean-Philippe maintains regular speaking roles at various international fora and academic institutions on international taxation and trust law.

Jean-Philippe is married and has an adorable little son and daughter who help restore balance in an otherwise hectic lifestyle.
