Maltese law firm GANADO Advocates is pleased to announce the retirement as Managing Partner of Dr. Max Ganado and the appointment of Dr. Louis Cassar Pullicino as the firm’s new Managing Partner with effect from 17 June, 2015.

Dr. Max Ganado, who held the position of Managing Partner for the past 6 years, officially handed over to Dr. Louis Cassar Pullicino during an event held at the GANADO Advocates premises in Valletta on 17 June. In his address to lawyers, managers and administrative staff, Max expressed great satisfaction at having led such a great team for several years during which many goals relating to the firm were met through excellent collaboration among lawyers, professionals and staff.  “With the other Partners and Associates, I now look forward to helping Louis and the Board of Management face future challenges in a world undergoing massive change at a very fast pace”. Dr. Ganado will now take up the position of Senior Partner in the firm with a mix of duties, some professional and others relating to strategy.

Dr. Louis Cassar Pullicino specialises in commercial litigation, in particular, admiralty and shipping disputes, banking, corporate disputes and insolvency, insurance and contractual disputes with an international dimension. Described by Chambers & Partners as a Band 1 Lawyer, Louis has been involved in the market’s most complex marine litigation cases and has assisted various ship-owners and P&I Clubs in disputes before the Maltese Courts. He has also been involved in numerous lawsuits appearing for international banks in the enforcement of security on loan defaults and has dealt with a wide range of cross-border and multi-jurisdictional disputes.

Bringing a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the firm, Louis will continue to provide quality legal services and looks forward to driving the continued success achieved by GANADO Advocates during Max’s tenure as Managing Partner.
