Ecovis Group adds legal services to its portfolio
Ecovis Malta, under the aegis of Ecovis GRC Limited, recently announced the launch of a range of legal services which are expected to significantly enhance the business advisory role of the firm.
Headed by Dr Claire Galea, a fully-fledged legal team at Ecovis Malta now offers various corporate services, together with support and advice to clients in commercial and contract law, as well as in sectors such as iGaming, yachting and aviation, intellectual property, residence, employment and industrial relations, trusts, foundations and voluntary organisations. Dr Galea recently presented the Ecovis Malta portfolio of legal services to the Ecovis international network at its Regional Partners Meeting held in Luxembourg.
Commenting on the firm’s legal services, Ecovis Malta managing director Anthony Vella explained that this development was in line with the multidisciplinary concept of the Ecovis international network, and that the introduction of these services “complements the holistic range of accounting, auditing and technology advisory professional services already being offered by the company”.
Vella also stated that its legal portfolio has enabled Ecovis Malta to support its small- and medium-sized business clients, among others, by recently obtaining a licence as a Corporate Advisor for the Malta Stock Exchange’s “Prospects” market. As a result, Ecovis Malta “has continued building upon the offering of business valuation and merger and acquisition support for such businesses, by providing a one-stop-shop service for owners looking to expand, restructure or consider transaction alternatives for their commercial operation”.
He added that “the possibility of assisting clients in raising capital through the role of Corporate Advisor fits well within our knowhow in the areas of accounting, legal, finance and regulatory compliance. In our capacity as Corporate Advisor, we are now assisting small- and mediumsized enterprises to prepare for admission to market listing. Our legal set-up also ensures that we can support clients in observing the applicable rules and regulations of corporate governance and transparency, for the benefit and protection of all the stakeholders”.
