Corporate & Company Law:
The corporate department of the firm constitutes the cornerstone of its practice. The experience of the firm’s highly reputable and exceptionally specialised team is second to none in Cyprus. The department’s practice covers the formation, acquisition and sale of Cyprus companies, shareholder agreements and corporate governance issues, capital-raising transactions, public and private offerings of securities and securities law compliance, local and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, management buy-outs and earn-outs, corporate management, and re-domiciliation of companies in and out of Cyprus.

The firm also provides ongoing legal advice and support to Cyprus Phassouri (Zakaki) Limited, member of the CNS Group (with respect to the construction of Europe’s largest casino resort in Limassol), including recent advice on major real estate transactions in excess of EUR 100,000,000.

Moreover, the firm provides ongoing legal support and advice to Hennes & Mauritz since commencing operations in Cyprus in 2016.

Financial Services & Securities Regulation:
The firm has unprecedented expertise in this area of Cyprus law, and together with years of experience, leads thinking on regulatory developments in the financial and investment sectors, helping and guiding clients in lobbying on, planning for, and implementing changes as they occur. The team maintains day-to-day contact with the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission and is often engaged in drafting legislative amendments in these areas of law. The firm has in-depth and technical knowledge of financial services regulation laws including MiFID, MiFID II, laws regulating funds and investment collective schemes, and advises asset managers, investment banks, investment firms, and brokers/agents on fund and manager formation and distribution and cross-border regulatory issues.

Litigation, Arbitration & Mediation:
The litigation team is considered one of the best in Cyprus and covers all areas of general and commercial law.

The firm also succeeded in getting an order set aside, by which leave to seal a writ of summons against Google Inc. and Google LLC was granted. Moreover, our firm represented many of the recently appointed judges in a significant case before the Administrative Court, whereby our firm successfully challenged the decision of the state not to include these judges in the Government Pension Scheme on the basis that the provisions of the relevant law were unconstitutional.

The firm’s tax department develops effective solutions to tax problems that are both tax-efficient and practical. The firm’s tax practitioners advise on a wide range of Cypriot tax issues arising in the context of international and local transactions, including court disputes.
