Contributing to local and international conferences and seminars

October 2017

The Cyprus Fiduciary Association (CFA) organised a valuable and practical seminar titled “Rights of Settlor and Beneficiaries under a Trust” on 28 and 29 September 2017 in Nicosia and Limassol respectively.

Senior and Managing Partner, Mr Stavros Pavlou made an extensive presentation analysing all matters relating to the role of settlors and beneficiaries under a trust, with particular emphasis on Cyprus International Trusts.

Moreover, panellist Mrs Stella Strati, Limited Partner of our law firm, joined the discussions around real case study scenarios, providing attendees with a more practical aspect of the matters involved.

Lawyers, directors and employees of administrative service providers attended the seminar, raised interesting questions and gave a very positive feedback, thus deeming the seminar a huge success.

Furthermore, the Association of International Tax Consultants (AITC) organised its annual conference in Bucharest, Romania on 1st and 2nd September 2017.  As a member of AITC for many years, Patrikios Pavlou & Associates LLC was represented at the AGM by Mr Stylianos Trillides, Senior Lawyer in the Corporate Department of the firm.

Mr Trillides had the opportunity to meet and network with all other professional members of the association from all over the world, as well as to take part in presentations and workshops on various interesting topics such as European Directives on tax developments, international tax planning challenges and other internal association matters.

Additionally, during the AGM, our Senior & Managing Partner, Mr Stavros Pavlou, was elected in the Board of Directors of AITC and was appointed for International Affairs. Mr Pavlou expressed his gratitude and commitment towards the associations’ goals.

Finally, the Board and the rest of the members thanked their hosts for the impeccable organisation of the event and everyone wished a great and fruitful cooperation for many years to come.

  • The 'dark' side of the data room: disclosure dangers in M&A and finance transactions

    Given the corporate environment's ever-changing nature and business needs and the importance of data protection at the EU level, the topic of due diligence in M&A and financial transactions warrants examination. The disclosure, transfer and processing of data raises concerns at several stages of the due diligence process during a transaction and undoubtedly makes things more complicated.
