Ganado Advocates is organising a seminar on banking and finance law, in collaboration with the Malta Bankers’ Association, reflecting the increasing sophistication of the Maltese jurisdiction.

“Legal services are no longer about litigation and court but about a whole range of activities serving the growing financial services industry,” Ganado partner and seminar chairman Conrad Portanier said.

“Most banks have in-house lawyers but not all of them. With rapid developments at every turn, they need very focused legal services.”

Managing partner Max Ganado said the level of sophistication was always increasing, as was the quality of lawyers in this field.

“In the time between Malta becoming an onshore jurisdiction and EU accession in 2004, we gained expertise in financial services, maritime registration and so on. We were ready and waiting for the opportunities that membership brought,” he said.

The keynote speaker is Philip Wood, one of the world’s leading experts in comparative and cross-border financial law. He is also a celebrated speaker, a well-known author and an experienced practitioner. He has written around 18 books, including nine volumes in the series Law and Practice of International Finance published in 2007. He works full-time for Allen & Overy in the firm’s London office. He will be talking about the future of financial law and lawyers.

The programme includes a panel discussion on the challenges of protecting privacy and confidentiality in banking.

The seminar is being held on February 19 at the Phoenicia Hotel from 2pm to 5.45pm.
