About Us

Hassans International Law Firm is the largest law firm in Gibraltar with 43 partners, 50 additional fee-earners and 250 staff in total.

Founded in 1939, Hassans is a full service firm with specialisms in corporate, M&A, commercial, financial services, insurance, litigation, funds, gaming, property, private client, tax and shipping law.

Hassans’ clients are diverse but our approach is always consistent: to understand our clients, provide superior advice and get results. Our primary aim is to deliver a service consistent with old world values of customer care, whilst constantly evolving to embrace new world technology to meet the urgency that today’s world demands.

Many of our private clients are highly successful entrepreneurs and investors who approach us for guidance on how best to grow and protect their assets.  As well as individuals, we act for companies ranging from local businesses to Fortune 500 multinationals, employing innovative structures to save our clients time and money.

Our specialist FinTech team, the largest of its kind in Gibraltar, brings together a broad range of allied disciplines, all sharing in-depth knowledge of, and a driving passion for, Gibraltar’s innovative blockchain and crypto spaces.

We also advise financial institutions, including the major investment banks and insurance companies, enabling them to set up and run new entities and products.

Hassans’ associated fiduciary company, Line Group, is an internationally-recognised trust and company management provider. It is one of Gibraltar´s leading players in the provision of trustee services, and the incorporation and management of corporate vehicles in Gibraltar, as well in over 25 other jurisdictions for a worldwide client base.

Local Knowledge – International Scope

When you work with Hassans, you work with one of the world’s leading independent law firms.  As a firm with a global reach, Hassans works across borders and jurisdictions for a variety of international clients – from local businesses to major multinationals.

Diverse, cosmopolitan and multi-lingual, our specialist teams have all the expertise required to advise on a variety of cross-border and multijurisdictional assignments. We can also call on the support, when necessary, of expert partners across the world.
This combination of local renown, international expertise and a worldwide network means Hassans is trusted by some of the world’s leading names, including quoted companies based in the US, UK and mainland Europe 

Close Advisors to Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar

Hassans is eminently proud of its own part the firm has played, and continues to play, in Gibraltar’s rich history. Our status and knowledge also means that we are regularly called upon to advise the Gibraltar Government on new legislation. The firm helped to develop local tax legislation and, in 2014, aided the delivery of a new Companies Act and Insolvency Act; an important step for Gibraltar’s businesses and business owners, marking Gibraltar out as a mature and modern marketplace.

More recently, Hassans were also deeply involved in helping to draft the guidance notes for Gibraltar’s ground-breaking DLT regulations, which came into force on January 1st, 2018.

Trusted Worldwide

Unparalleled knowledge and expertise, distinguished client service, a strong commitment to corporate responsibility and a solid reputation built over decades are just some of the reasons our clients chose Hassans. From private clients and investors to government legislators, entrepreneurs and start-ups to Fortune 500 companies; our track record speaks for itself.
