How we got here

Mcc And Jpc

The firm was founded in 2002 as a family firm by lawyers Jean-Philippe Chetcuti and Maria Chetcuti Cauchi. The firm now boasts 10 partners and a compliment of over 130 lawyers, tax advisors and paralegals spanning all areas of international law and taxation, from offices in Malta, Cyprus, London and Zurich. We remain small at heart but big in our aspirations.



Jean-Philippe leaves the Tax & Legal Department of a Big 4 accountancy firm and joins a boutique Private Client Law Firm as tax partner starting the firm's international tax practice.
Maria leaves a corporate lawyer position at another Big 4 accountancy firm and joins a leading corporate law firm. Here, Maria specialises in corporate law, M&As and capital markets practice.


JP moves on to set up his own full-service legal and corporate practice in 2002 with a focus on international tax, immigration law and company formation and administration.
Maria joins in the same year, starting the Capital Markets, Corporate & M&A, Intellectual Property and Financial Services Regulation practice groups of the firm.


Being a first multi-disciplinary model combining legal, corporate services and tax, whilst following already strong values of excellence and integrity, the firm experiences rapid growth coinciding with Malta's booming financial services growth.


The firm sets up its Trust and Fiduciary operation and obtains a licence to provide services as a professional trustee, fiduciary and to act as an administrator of foundations set up under Maltese law.


The firm opens its second European office in Cyprus, thus taking the first step towards becoming a European Law Firm.


The firm opens its London office, making it the first and currently the only Maltese and Cypriot law firm with operational offices in the City.  Our London office enables us to work closely with the British legal and professional community and better reach London's international business community.


Priscilla Mifsud-Parker, a corporate and trusts lawyer, and Kenneth Camilleri, a tax advisor and CPA, become the first homegrown partners of the firm.
The firm's 3 offices in Valletta move to a consolidated office within a 17th Century Palazzo in St Ursula Street, Valletta after 4 years of loving restoration.


Silvana Zammit, a lawyer specialising in technology law, gaming law and ownership solutions for super-yachts, becomes the 5th partner of the firm.


The firm opens its Zurich office near the Opera House in Seehofstrasse, to offer Maltese and Cypriot legal solutions to the Swiss legal and banking community.

The firm is currently working on further developing its people, improving its client-centric focus and leveraging technology to consolidate and optimise our operations.
