TSN Barristers & Solicitors (formerly Triay Stagnetto Neish) is widely recognised as one of Gibraltar’s leading law firms, boasting a wealth of experience and expertise as well as some of Gibraltar’s most prominent lawyers. The firm was formed in August 2001 as a result of the merger of Louis W Triay & Partners and Stagnetto & Co which were established in 1950 and 1953 respectively. The firm acquired the Gibraltar practice of Denton Wilde Sapte in 2006 and were joined by leading litigator Keith Azopardi Q.C in 2012.
The firm is renowned for the partner-led approach towards client service and relationships which promotes continuity, working efficiency and intelligent cost management. It also offers the advantages of a larger firm whilst retaining the highly personal service that its predecessor firms provided in the past.
Whilst always well respected both locally and internationally, TSN has in a relatively short period of time doubled in size and grown into one of Gibraltar’s largest law firms. Its practitioners are divided into both barristers and solicitors thereby being able to offer clients a more balanced and complete legal service. The increase in size has allowed TSN to offer specialised advice through dedicated teams able to meet the everchanging needs and objectives of their client base.
Main Areas of Practice:
Years of experience assisting large and small companies across a range of industries and jurisdictions with an extensive range of commercial and corporate matters ranging from complicated global restructuring and refinancing deals, to advising and dealing with the day to day needs of smaller businesses.
