The complicated ones; because they always keep me on my toes.  I enjoy the challenge of trying to figure out a way on how to solve a particular matter.

Tell us about your academic and professional background.

In 2013 I enrolled for the Bachelor of Laws at the University of Malta, and in 2016 whilst I was still undergoing my studies, I started my journey with lecocqassociate as a junior associate where I was given the opportunity to experience corporate law at first hand.

A year later in 2017, I successfully graduated and a year later I obtained my Master of Advocacy. Finally, at the beginning of 2019, I was admitted to the Bar in Malta, after being awarded the warrant to practice law in Malta. Until today, I am still with lecocqassociate, and after 4 years, I moved up to becoming an Associate.

How many languages do you speak?

I speak Maltese, English and Italian fluently, and I have an basic understanding of French.

What made you want to be a solicitor/lawyer?

For as long as I can remember, I always had some sort of point to make. I was always ready to voice my opinion, and defend myself in miniscule arguments. There was never a turning point in my life where I wanted to change my profession to anything else, the choice was always obvious to a certain extent, I kind of always knew that legal work is what I want to do.

Business aside, what do you enjoy doing when you are not in the office?

When I’m out of office, I enjoy spending time with my friends, going out, reading and mostly doing crossfit,

What is your secret talent?

Singing, It’s not that much of a secret cause I sing all the time.
