MSI's Maltese law member Chetcuti Cauchi Advocates is delighted to announce the appointment of Michelle de Maria to the firm's partnership. The appointments of Dr Silvana Zammit, last December, and now Michelle de Maria, brings the number of partners at Chetcuti Cauchi Advocates to six.

In his address to over 150 of the firm’s members and their families at the firm’s Summer BBQ, co-founder and managing partner, Dr Jean-Philippe Chetcuti, highlighted the firm’s values of competence and engagement and how tax lawyer Michelle de Maria excelled at both, serving as a glowing example of how working mothers can enjoy the joys and challenges of raising children whilst reaching the highest levels of performance in professional life.

Michelle started her career with Chetcuti Cauchi in September 2010 as Manager, and later Senior Manager of our international tax practice. With her specialised knowledge of tax law, our new Partner has established a strong reputation within the tax sector. She has taken an active role in her field and is a member of the Malta Institute of Taxation, the International Tax Planning Association and sits on the Tax and non-regulated business sub-committee of the IFSP. As Tax Partner, Michelle will continue her work as an invaluable asset in our Tax Advisory practice.

With over 20 years of experience in the areas of tax and corporate law, with Chetcuti Cauchi and with Big Four accountancy firms and boutique firms in Malta prior to that, Michelle advises primarily on domestic tax law as applicable in an international context and a variety of cross border tax issues. Michelle is also a chartered company secretary and a member of the ICSA in the UK and her interest and strong grounding in Corporate Law makes her particularly well suited to advise about corporate structures. She also advises on tax issues relating to other entities or arrangements such as partnerships, foundations and trusts and the financial services sector as well as personal taxation”
