Malta Funds Industry Association   mfia



Gauci-Maistre Xynou (Legal | Assurance) is a boutique Greco-Maltese firm which was formed with the main scope of bridging the divide between the legal and assurance services sectors, particularly within the financial services industries. It is with this in mind that the founding partners, Jean-Pie Gauci-Maistre and Despoina Xynou setup GMX. Prior to founding GMX, Jean-Pie headed the Legal Department of a Malta based group of companies which had been active for over four decades in various sectors primarily corporate and financial services and ship and yacht registration. Despoina Xynou moved to Malta having spent her professional career with a renowned Greek law firm. Given that Dr Gauci-Maistre had established a strong client base in Greece, the partnership with Despoina Xynou was a logical development. The firm has since grown from strength to strength and today boasts of a large international client portfolio active in various sectors.

The law firm’s international desks allow GMX to offer unique tailor made legal services ensuring that an internationally holistic approach is adopted for every case. Gauci-Maistre Xynou is therefore well-placed to assist clients from various jurisdictions in their respective industries. It has truly emerged as an efficient and reliable one stop shop. Solidifying its presence both locally as well as internationally, the firm comprises a team of professionals, specialising in their respective fields, ready to provide tailor made services to their various clients.

Ultimately, Gauci-Maistre Xynou’s top priority is its clients.
