Legal market overview

Despite Cyprus being one of the smallest countries in the region in terms of area and population, its recent efforts to establish a business-friendly tax regime through a system of double taxation agreements underlines the country’s attempt to position itself as an international financial centre. This endeavour is further supported by the government’s announcement to establish a Commercial Court in 2018 to deal with the growing number of international disputes being adjudicated in Cyprus. Additionally, the country remains one of the world's foremost shipping centres and its admiralty court is a major forum for resolving maritime disputes. 

However, an air of cautious optimism pervades, which can also be observed in other sectors: although the real estate market is further recovering, banks still remain reluctant to increase their exposure here. 

The Cypriot legal market is also seeing times of transition: while it had previously been dominated by family-run legal firms, a higher demand for increased specialism has facilitated the entry of numerous accountancy firms, which are eager to attract legal professionals with strong international qualifications.
