WH Partners has announced the appointment of three new partners: Ramona Azzopardi, Joseph Borg and Robert Zammit. They join current partners Olga Finkel, Ruth Galea and James Scicluna in the partnership.
These promotions strengthen three of the firm’s core practice areas, namely gaming and gambling, tax advisory and blockchain technology.
“The internal promotion of three new partners reflects our growth strategy for 2018 and beyond,” said co-founder and partner Dr Finkel.
“We are delighted by these internal appointments and wish each of our new partners every success.”
