Tonio Fenech LL.M (Lond), LLD
Dr Tonio Fenech obtained his Masters Degree in Maritime and Aviation law from the Universtiy of London (UCL) and his Doctorate in Maltese law from the University of Malta in 1986.
Representing the 3rd generation of lawyers in his family, he created the international and corporate practice of Fenech & Fenech Advocates in 1988 and was the founding CEO of the Fenlex Group of companies, now a developed trust and corporate services group in Malta. In 2008 he resigned from both positions and left the family firm to become a joint Managing Partner of the newly formed Fenech Farrugia Fiott Legal. This move allowed him to concretize his aspirations to develop an open-architecture legal practice and to focus on the development of the firm’s substantial corporate & commercial, aviation, financial services and fiduciary relationships department.
Tonio has practised law for over 30 years with an accent on corporate & commercial, financial services and asset finance law. He is one of the few specialists in fiduciary obligations and trust law in Malta and his counsel is often sought by other local professionals. He often speaks at conferences as well as giving lectures at the University of Malta teaching aspects of insurance law, trust & fiduciary obligations law and asset finance law. He is a Director of several group companies and is Chairman of the ARQ Group of Companies which comprises of multi-disciplinary advisory services in the field of tax, personal residence and various regulated industries. The Group also combines licensed trustee, fiduciary, corporate and accounting services, together with resource allocation and infrastructural support.
Dr Fenech also holds the position of the Honorary Consul of Lebanon to Malta.
In his spare time, Tonio enjoys reading about current international social issues, sailing, enjoying the art of controversial masters such as Caravaggio, and the developing world of cinema and cinematography.
