Dickinson Wright Forms Alliance with WH Law in Malta

May 13, 2011

Dickinson Wright and WH Law, headed by well-known and highly regarded gaming and business lawyer Olga Finkel, are pleased to announce that they have formed a strategic referral alliance to provide comprehensive legal services to their respective clients.

Malta has played a critical role in Mediterranean and European commerce for centuries. As a member of the European Union with a reputation for a stable, English-speaking economy with an excellent regulatory framework and a very favorable tax structure, Malta is recognized as a leading European situs for online i-gaming businesses, a major ship domicile (it has one of the largest port facilities in the world as a result of its central location between the eastern and western Mediterranean, southern Europe, and northern Africa) and a favored jurisdiction for captive insurance companies, investment funds, and commercial ship and aircraft financing.

Malta also is the home of one of the leading online gaming law firms in the world, WH Law. WH Law is the Malta law firm of choice for many of the leading online gaming companies that have established Malta as a jurisdictional base. WH Law also has extensive experience in business and finance, as well as the shipping industry. Dickinson Wright, with ten offices in the United States and Canada, is well known for the breadth and depth of its international expertise in land-based and online i-gaming, banking, finance, captive insurance, business, intellectual property, and immigration. Dickinson Wright recognized the significant and continually growing role that WH Law and Malta play in European commerce. As a result, it was natural for the two firms to establish an alliance that enhances and strengthens the depth and breadth of legal services that both firms can provide to their respective clients and other businesses seeking to enter the North American and European markets.
