Frequently Asked Questions about Legal Advice Malta

No, there is no need for you to be physically present in Malta. The Code of Organisation and Civil Procedure (Cap. 12 of the Laws of Malta) provides for such instances and allows attorneys to appear on behalf of people who are absent from the Maltese Islands. To this end, you may provide us with a power of attorney and we may be able to act on your behalf.

There is no set deadline for when such matters may be closed off and hence, we can never provide an approximate date when proceedings may be terminated.

Most actions may become time-barred after a certain amount of years or months under Maltese law, hence, we would suggest that you get in touch with us immediately so that we may be able to advise about such possible prescription periods.

We can never give a 100% confirmation that you will definitely win a case or that you will have a favourable outcome, especially if the matter is pending before the Maltese Courts or Tribunals. Nevertheless, before initiating such proceedings, we will let you know about any possible consequences and whether it is actually advisable to proceed.

Different proceedings usually have different fees related with them. Hence, we would suggest that you would get in touch with us and we shall guide you about this in more detail.
