Republic of Cyprus association

 In November 2011, Hugh-Jones & Co (now LLP) entered into an association with Michael Kyprianou & Co. LLC, Republic of Cyprus.

Michael Kyprianou & Co. LLC has established a reputation as a broad based legal practice and areas of specialisation include Corporate and Commercial Law, Local and International Taxation, Banking Law, Real Estate Law, Admiralty, Shipping, Insurance Law, Local and International Arbitration and Intellectual Property.

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. Their work has been appraised by reputable international directories such as the European Legal 500 and Chambers. Michael Kyprianou also have representative offices in Dublin, Dubai, Lugano and the BVI.

Prestigious clients of Michael Kyprianou include: Debenhams Plc, The Bennetton Group, The Royal Bank of Scotland ZAO, BNP Paribas, Merrill Lynch Mortgage Lending, INC, Morgan Stanley Mortgage Capital Inc, The Royal Bank of Canada, German American Capital Co-operation and others. Michael Kyprianou & Co.LLC has also received instructions from renowned international law firms such as Herbert Smith, Clifford Chance, Allen & Overy, Norton Rose, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP and Holland & Knight LLP.

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
