Georg Sapiano

Georg has been practicing law for the past twenty years. Throughout much of that time he was also deeply involved in mass media and public affairs. In 1998, he founded Sapiano & Associates which was later re-branded into Aequitas Legal and which is now one of the principal providers of legal services in Malta. He is best known for combining legal expertise with a keen sense of strategy.

Georg started his career by leading clients in a number of monopoly-busting actions starting with the deregulation of the insurance market in Malta in 1992. In other fields, principally corporate law, he has represented a number of the largest Maltese and International businesses and government agencies including banks, insurances and all the major car manufacturers.

He and his team have attracted a number of large internet-based businesses to Malta, where they have incorporated and set up operations. He sits on the board of a number of funds and has advised clients seeking to be regulated by the Maltese Financial Services Authority. He is the contact partner for Malta within Multilaw and has developed an extensive network of relationships with leading lawfirms in Europe, North America and Asia. The common theme of the service he has provided throughout is an ability to place the tools of Maltese law within the commercial and strategic context in which it is to be applied

Aequitas Legal

Corporations and individuals who seek to enforce a claim or assert a right often find that they are encountering too many misty legal terms and concepts. This is the very opposite of the concrete results they seek. The experience turns out to be alien and numbing.

We have tried to build our business on the clarification of the abstract by always endeavouring to put forward practical and sensible legal options which we discuss with clients.

We are aware that knowledge and understanding of the law is what you require from us, but we also know that you want our legal work to respect your business strategies as far as possible.

Working together on a legal transaction can be far removed from one’s comfort zone but clear thinking can produce great results.

We invite you to engage with us and be part of the process.
