Legal market overview

The Cypriot government implemented strict policies to stabilise the country’s troubled economy and particularly to rehabilitate the banking sector, but although lawyers report some signs of stabilisation the future remains uncertain, with scarce credit, high unemployment and non-performing loans still posing a problem.

Nonetheless, Cyprus remains an attractive destination for international tax structures thanks to its tax incentives and low levels of corporate tax. Furthermore, the discovery of gas deposits offshore represents a potential source of revenue for the country’s wounded economy and of optimism among beleaguered firms.

The legal market remains dominated by family-owned firms which depend largely on their connections with international firms. Andreas Neocleous & Co LLC maintains its leading position in the market and other important players include Chrysses Demetriades & Co Law Office, Dr K Chrysostomides & Co LLC and Antis Triantafyllides & Sons.
