With a team of 22 lawyers, the firm is now one of the largest in Cyprus with offices in all three major cities of Nicosia, Limassol and Paphos. On 1st of September 2009, Michael Kyprianou & Co LLC also began its operations in Greece with a fully fledged office in a prestigious area of central Athens.

The Cyprus legal system is modeled on similar principles as those applicable in the United Kingdom and all statutes regulating business matters and procedures are based essentially on English Law. Most members of the Cyprus judiciary and many leading lawyers are English trained barristers registered with the Cyprus Bar Association. Most laws are translated into English.
The strategic location of Cyprus, its favourable tax environment, educated work force, excellent telecommunications and modern banking and legal infrastructure, make the country an ideal business bridge for the European Union and the Middle East.
On foreign policy issues, the Cyprus government aligns itself with the European Union position in the context of the EU's Common Foreign and Security Policy. Although Cyprus has long identified with the West, it has also developed close relations with the Arab world, Latin American countries and the African continent.
As a result of our association with Michael Kyprianou, we are able to provide a wide range of legal services to any individual or corporate entities that have an interest in the Republic of Cyprus
