EMD Advocates is a well-established Maltese law firm providing traditional legal services as well as specialised legal, tax and advisory services to its wide portfolio of Maltese and international clients.  In fact, the firm boasts a strong international legal practice particularly in the commercial, corporate, tax, i-gaming, financial services and fintech fields. Our approach is client-centred and our ethos is based on adding value to a project or assignment through our ability to think out of the box and provide clients with the optimum solution for their requirements. Given that today our legal service line is most often intrinsically connected with the requirement for tax and accounting consultancy, EMD has developed into multi-disciplinary organization. With our wide array of area specialists we are able to provide consultancy services and assistance to our clients in areas such as tax consultancy and compliance, accounting, payroll management, trust creation and administration, financial services, cryptocurrency, ICOs and fintech. This full-service concept is well received by clients who choose Malta to take advantage of the various fiscal and other benefits granted under Maltese law since, under one roof, EMD is able to provide all the back-office assistance required to comply with Maltese legislative requirements.

« In our endeavour to provide tailor-made solutions that meet our clients' expectations in a timely and cost-effective manner, and owing to the fact that the firm has a strong international client base, it was imperative for us to join an international alliance of reputable law firms. The proposal made to us to become the Maltese member firm of TELFA was immediately accepted as TELFA fitted perfectly within our objectives and strategies. »
