Dr Mark Gatt joined Michael Kyprianou Advocates as an associate in 2017, based in our Malta office. Prior to this, he undertook a legal internship with the aim of getting a better insight into the world of intellectual property. This was essential when preparing for his dissertation titled ‘Trademark limitations post registration: do such limitations weaken a trademark or do they strengthen the system even further?’, which was submitted as part of his Doctor of Laws (LL.D.) course.

Mark has since assisted various clients in securing their intellectual property rights through registrations locally, within the EU framework and internationally, as well as with any intellectual property-related disputes. Mark quickly grew in his position and he is now Head of Compliance. As of 2022, he has added to his expertise by becoming a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist.

At Michael Kyprianou Advocates, he is responsible for ensuring the company’s compliance with the applicable rules and regulations, as well as providing guidance and advice to clients on the proper implementation of the various rules and regulations, assisting in the drafting and effective implementation of policies and guidelines and providing advice and guidance on how an entity best maintains an effective compliance culture to combat money laundering, terrorist financing and other forms of financial crime which such entity may be exposed to.

Mark has also advised various clients with regard to their employment-based residence permit applications and has successfully assisted clients with any appeals process related to such residence permit applications before the Visa Appeals Board.
