The WH story started in 2006 when Olga Finkel founded WH Law. By 2012 the firm had evolved into a multi-discipline firm and the addition of partner James Scicluna led to the formation of WH Partners as we know it today. Shortly after the partnership was created, Senior Associate Ruth Galea was promoted to the position of Partner and the firm continued to grow both in terms of staff numbers and quantity and quality of clients.
The underlying ethos of WH Partners has always been to understand the client’s business. It is this understanding and a dedication in comprehending the clients’ needs that enable us to ensure their goals are achieved quickly, efficiently and with outstanding attention to detail. WH Partners has always prided themselves on placing the client at the centre and this, mixed with a results-orientated focus and a strong dose of enthusiasm has ensured that the firm remain well known and respected. The whole team constantly strives to ensure that the quality of work consistently reflects these values, whether it is legal advice on aspects of a market entry strategy, conducting due diligence on a target asset or putting forward alternatives on the structuring of an IPR portfolio.
