Where it all started
  • 1905

    The firm traces its origins to the practice established in Gibraltar in 1905 by the late Arthur C. Carrara CMG, KC a friend and colleague of Sergio Pelayo Triay QC (the grandfather and great grandfather of the Triay brothers and family). SP Triay QC joined Arthur Carrara in practice in 1926.

  • 1949

    Arthur Carrara died in 1949 which was the same year when JJ Triay joined his father in practice. After Arthur Carrara’s death, the practice was then run by S P Triay QC and his son and became known as Triay & Triay.

  • 1952

    JJ’s brother J E Triay QC joined the firm in 1952 when Triay was already in full swing under his father’s leadership. The firm’s previous name, Triay & Triay, represented the two generations of the Triay family then in practice.

    JE Triay QC became the senior lawyer of the firm in 1972.

    Today the firm remains true to its family origins – all of JE Triay QC’s sons are Directors of the firm. Sir Alfred Vasquez QC’s son, Robert Vasquez QC, is a consultant of the firm, having retired recently as a partner, and Sir Alfred’s nephew, Freddie Vasquez QC, is also a Director of the Firm. With the expansion of our team over the years, we have evolved into a firm with a corporate and commercial vision in how we deliver legal services, whilst still maintaining the family values that are engrained in us by our heritage.
