Nicole Ann Demicoli, former Senior Associate at Salibastafrace Legal, was made Partner at the Valletta-based law firm.
Dr Demicoli joined the firm back in 2019 and currently also forms part of Salibastafrace Legal’s Financial Services and Corporate Law branches.
The newly-appointed Partner started her career within the financial service department of a top-tier law firm in Malta, with her main areas of practice being advising and assisting local and foreign clients operating in the investment services sector.
Following said role, she joined one of the leading fund administrators in Malta and formed part of the cororate secretarial department within the funds department.
Since joining Salibastafrace Legal, Dr Demicoli has been actively involved in the structuring and setting up of investment vehicles and other types of licence holders as well as providing advice and ongoing assistance too clients in Malta and abroad.
Dr Demicoli’s appointment coincides with Joseph Camilleri’s promotion to Senior Associate within the same firm.
Dr Camilleri joined Salibastafrace Legal as a Legal Trainee in 2018 and has, since then, trained in many of the firm’s practices, with his main area of focus being public and civil law.
“It is of great pleasure to see these appointments within our firm,” Salibastafrace Legal Founding Partner Ian Stafrace said.
“We are privileged to have great people on board. Such appointments are testimony to our commitment to invest in our people and have the law firm not just as a place of work, but rather, a place where their personal and professional success is of utmost priority,” he continued.
Founding Partner Joseph Saliba added that “both [Dr Demicoli] and [Dr Camilleri] have been pivotal to the growing success of the firm in recent years, and both show exception expertise and dedication to their respective areas of practice.
“They are living testimony to our believe that the most relevant and valuable assets of firms like ours are its own people, especially those with qualities such as [Dr Demicoli] and [Dr Camilleri],” Dr Saliba concluded.
At the time of writing, his journey has led to £24,849 (€28,665) being raised for mental health charities.
He remarks that people tend to mistakenly view failure as a ‘setback’ or ‘disappointment’.
