An international jury made up of industry professionals and members of the HNWI community were entrusted with the task of picking a European Citizenship Advisor that has shown a deep commitment to offering a service which is truly tailored to the needs of the modern High Net Worth Individuals. The jury recognized our significant contribution to ensuring the freedom of movement, investment and residence for international clients seeking to become global citizens and thus conferred this prestigious award to the firm for the work it carries out in this industry. Our firm has been the law firm of choice for several High Net Worth Individuals who sought to attain European Citizenship by investing in the Maltese or Cypriot economy. As a law & professional services firm, we are able to go above and beyond the services offered by other citizenship agents, because we can also offer legal advice to clients on ancillary matters such as tax implications and relocating. Through its corporate practice, our firm also assists clients who seek to relocate their businesses to Europe.
Dr Jean Philippe Chetcuti, Managing Partner and Head of Residency & Citizenship practice at Chetcuti Cauchi Advocates, accepted the award on behalf of the firm at the Moscow Family Office Forum. The Forum was set up in 2011 to provide a unique networking platform for International financial service providers to network with Russian private bankers, lawyers, real estate agents, institutional investors, family offices and UHNWs. Dr Jean-Philippe Chetcuti was one of the renowned international experts who met to discuss a broad range of topics which are very relevant to HNWI, including taxation, economic citizenship, wealth management, asset protection & structuring. Dr Chetcuti and other representatives from the firm also introduced the guests to the wide array of residency and citizenship programmes offered by Malta and Cyprus.
Chetcuti Cauchi - A wealth of expertise in offering European citizenship solutions
Our firm has been advising international clients on the acquisition of citizenship and residence for the last 15 years and boasts over 1,000 approved applications coupled with an unblemished 100% success rate.
Dr Jean-Philippe Chetcuti was one of the main drivers behind the introduction of the Malta Individual Investor Programme, the first-ever citizenship by investment programme to be launched in Europe which is fully approved by the European Union. He was the first practitioner to be accredited by Identity Malta Agency under the Malta Individual Investor Programme, holding licence no. IIP 001, and the first accredited person to be promoted to Approved Agent status.
“It is our honour to be conferred with this award in recognition of years of hard work and dedication to meeting the clients’ needs. Our firm has grown from just two partners, to over 170 employees across 5 countries, thanks to the trust and loyalty of our clients. The best part of our job is to see how people’s lives change completely, once they become global citizens and enjoy full freedom of movement, residence and investment,” said Dr Jean-Philippe Chetcuti.
