Gillian Portelli (1980) read law at the University of Malta and started her legal career in 2003. In 2004 she completed the post graduate course in Trust Law and Administration at the Institute of Financial Services Practitioners and is a member of the Maltese Chamber of Advocates.

Having worked as an associate in the litigation and commercial law department of a medium-sized Maltese law firm for four years, she moved on to set up her own practice. After perfecting her litigating skills and increasing her experience in handling major complex contentious cases while she served as a Judge Assistant in the Superior Courts of Malta, she then teamed up with Mark Portelli and co-founded Portelli & Portelli Advocates.

Gillian’s practice is predominantly contentious but she is also experienced in handling non-contentious matters. Gillian is experienced in civil and commercial matters, insurance and liability law, including liability based on tort, contract or quasi-contract, personal injury claims and is a specialist in arbitration. She is also frequently appointed as arbiter in all kinds of insurance law disputes.

Due to her extensive experience in handling family law related claims and in drafting separation contracts, she also frequently advises in connection with family law issues, including adoptions and divorce. Her non-contentious work consists mainly of contract drafting and advisory services relating to her areas of practice.
