Pavlos Kaimakliotis, Partner

Pavlos Kaimakliotis, Partner at Kaimakliotis LLC, gives an introduction to the firm and its key offerings.

1) What do you see as the main points that differentiate Kaimakliotis LLC from your competitors?

Kaimakliotis LLC is a truly modern and international law firm, which has been built on the models of leading international law firms around the world. The firm is unique in terms of the level of service it provides, its responsiveness, commercial awareness and quality of advice which compares to the level provided by international law firms in the same field. This is due to the experience of the Founding Partner of the Firm, Pavlos Kaimakliotis, who has previously worked as a dual qualified English/Cypriot corporate / M&A lawyer at the London, Moscow and Warsaw offices of Linklaters LLP, the global Magic Circle law firm. The Firm is able to work on cross-border transactions seamlessly with instructing international law firms and international corporates and banks, based on demanding deadlines and complex transactions.

2) Which practices do you see growing in the next 12 months? What are the drivers behind that?

We see our corporate / commercial and banking & finance departments (which are already our key and main departments) growing even more in the next 12 months. Key drivers to such growth will be our establishment as a go-to counsel with respect to leading M&A in Cyprus and also the extended network of international corporates, banks and instructing counsel that choose to work with us on such transactions. As our firm grows (both organically and via lateral hires), we are able to increase our capacity and handle even larger transactions at an efficient manner.

3) Is technology changing the way you interact with your clients, and the services you can provide them?

Obviously technology is playing a key role in our ability to deliver efficient and cost-effective services to our clients and also our ability to interact with our clients on a more targeted manner. Our internal CRM software, specimens and related tools allow us to achieve the goals we set in terms of service standards.

4) Can you give us a practical example of how you have helped a client to add value to their business?

Our deep knowledge of companies law in Cyprus has allowed us to effectively advice one international corporation with respect to its Cypriot operations and investments in terms of their shareholding rights as compared to rights of other shareholders as part of a commercial transaction. Our ability to see through the given problems in a pragmatic, practical and technically superior manner has allowed our client to retain and add value to their investment which was indeed greatly appreciated by them.

5) Are clients looking for stability and strategic direction from their law firms - where do you see the firm in three years’ time?

Without doubt our clients are looking to have by their side a strong, stable, efficient and ambitious law firm which understands their needs and appreciates their strategy. As such, our firm’s growth and direction is very much dependent on the requirements of our clients. We are undoubtedly a client-oriented law firm and as such we see our firm consolidating and enhancing our client relationships which may even lead us to grow closer to our clients both in terms of services but also geographically.
