Dispute Resolution
We have extensive experience and expertise in commercial litigation. We are regularly involved in disputes with an international element and work with overseas clients and lawyers.

Despite the actual litigation or alternative dispute resolution process and issues, strategy plays an important part of the dispute resolution process as well as the side effects of litigation including publicity and/or regulatory implications. We use our expertise in handling these factors for the best interests of our clients.

We understand and consider the sensitive issues of a clients' business and may advise that an alternative method of dispute resolution should be preferred, such as arbitration or mediation.

Corporate and Commercial
We provide a wide range of corporate and commercial services. We understand the concerns, specific circumstances and strategy of our clients and combining that with our deep legal knowledge and commercial awareness we provide an unrivalled level of service. Our advice is commercial, innovative and practical with an outlook for the future that ensures our clients are protected in the best way.

A strong financial services centre and substantial tax benefits are the major reasons for the creation of Cypriot companies that may act as intermediaries or holding companies. We diligently process all stages of transactions and structures with care and skill and tailor our services to our clients' needs.

We draft and advise on all sorts of agreements including sale-purchases, agency or shareholder agreements, on legal and regulatory aspects of corporate governance (such as director duties), the creation, administration of companies, trusts and fiduciary duties etc.

Our services include the formation of companies and other business entities and we also provide secretarial, directorship and nominee shareholder services.

Property, Conveyancing & Construction
The Property, Conveyancing and Construction department is one of the main departments of our firm. We act on sale/purchases of commercial and residential property. If it is needed we can get an independent valuation of the property by estate surveyors certified by the Royal Society of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). We also draft and advise on construction contracts.

In respect of our non-EU resident clients, we take all necessary steps for a permanent residency permit. We offer the fastest hustle-free service possible and our clients can be informed at any minute on the progress of their matters.

We take appropriate care to protect our clients from all issues arising from the seller's/landlord's title (or lack thereof), specified property encumbrances, construction etc. In a sensitive market such as the Cyprus market we maintain our independence from all developing institutions and banks.

Criminal Litigation
Some of the high profile cases we have acted include murder accusations and large scale drug trafficking. We enjoy a growing reputation and respect across the legal and judicial field as leading litigators.

We are committed to fight vigorously for our clients. Tactics, robust cross-examination and deep knowledge of law and practice constitute the three pillars of success. Our scope of service however extends beyond legal representation and advice; we are very interested in our client's well being and provide support throughout the process.

Trusts, Wills and Administration of Estates
We ensure and pledge to finish the Administration of an Estate as soon as possible. This is part of our ethics, values and client focus. Further, we will inform you from the outset as to the procedures and order of priority of distribution of the Estate. Cyprus enjoys the benefit of no inheritance tax. Our transparent practice is complimented by very attractive pricing.

Trusts may be used for taxation purposes as well as asset protection, whether they take the classic common-law form or the statutory International Trust form.
