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 partners and family). Sergio Triay joined Arthur Carrara in practice in 1926. 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 KC and his son and became known as Triay & Triay. JJ’s brother J E Triay QC joined the firm in 1952 when Triay & Triay was already in full swing under his father’s leadership. JE Triay QC became the senior partner of the firm in 1972.
