Dr Mark Gatt

Head of Compliance

Dr. Gatt joined Michael Kyprianou Advocates as an associate in 2017, based in the Malta office. Before that, he completed a legal internship to gain a deeper understanding of intellectual property, which helped him in writing his doctoral thesis on “Trademark limitations post-registration: do they weaken a trademark or strengthen the system?” At the firm, he has assisted clients in protecting their intellectual property rights through registrations locally, within the EU, and globally, as well as resolving intellectual property disputes. Mark has since advanced to become the Head of Compliance, where he ensures the company’s compliance with regulations and advises clients on implementing anti-money laundering measures. He is also a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist and has helped clients with their residency permit applications and appeals.
